Developing, Optimizing and Validating Automated Ultrasonic Procedures for Testing Heavy Walled Hydroprocessing Reactors

Ultrasonic simulations and ultrasonic testing (UT) were performed for two of the most complex hydroprocessing heavy walled reactor geometries and an experimental validation of an ultrasonic test model was performed on two mockups with implanted realistic discontinuities. High confidence and improved reliability in ultrasonic detection, sizing and characterization of discontinuities before they reach critical size in heavy walled reactors, along with development and validation of an optimized procedure, were achieved through an advanced and cost effective ultrasonic simulation approach.
