Webinar: Improve Austenitic Weld Inspections in Oil & Gas Sectors
Zetec will host a one-hour webinar in December titled « Improve Austenitic Weld Inspections in Oil & Gas sectors ». The webinar will showcase improvements related to upstream, midstream, downstream and petrochemical sectors across a wide range of applications, from flow pipes, blow out preventers and CRA pipelines, to heavy wall stainless steel process pipes.
The live webinar will be offered in two sessions: Wednesday, Dec. 13, from 10 a.m.-11 a.m. PST, and Thursday, Dec. 14, from 7 a.m.-8 a.m. PST. A recorded version will be available for later viewing.
The sessions will focus on using phased array ultrasound (PAUT) to enable more productive and robust austenitic weld inspections in lieu of radiography (RT). Demonstrations will include:
- A technique involving a series of standard dual matrix array probes and wedge assemblies that can be easily set up using a portable but high-power phased-array unit and its embedded software
- A single powerful software platform that can support all steps of the examination process, including comprehensive visualization of the data and efficient data analysis
- An analysis of ultrasonic data from practical trials on various representative austenitic weld specimens containing artificial and realistic flaws
With more stringent environmental and process requirements in the oil and gas industry, there is a need for efficient, productive volumetric NDT techniques. This webinar can help you understand how to improve the efficiency and performance of your austenitic weld inspections.
