A New, Improved Pipeline AUT Girth Weld Inspection System

Automated ultrasonics is steadily becoming the standard method of inspection of pipeline girth welds throughout the world. In addition, old technology multiprobe systems are rapidly being replaced by newer phased arrays. Olympus NDT developed the first phased array system a decade ago, which proved to be much more flexible and capable than multiprobe systems, particularly for offshore special applications. As such, PipeWIZARD v2 effectively became the global standard in AUT. A new version of PipeWIZARD has been developed, which incorporates all the techniques developed for PipeWIZARD, e.g. seamless pipe, thick section inspections, small diameter pipe inspections, clad pipe, and is significantly more powerful and flexible.
