N. Pörtzgen presentation at the India Energy Week, February 2023
As specialists in Asset Integrity management, NDT, and pipeline inspection, Applus+ is continuously developing and enhancing NDT technologies to improve the processes that will ensure safety and reliability, as well as durability, productivity, and efficiency for our client’s operations and assets.
To do so, Applus+ experts improve NDT methods and techniques to confirm the data collection during the inspection process is as comprehensive as possible and there is no ambiguity on its display, interpretation, and reporting. This results in more accurate and reliable information on the asset’s conditions.
Niels Pörtzgen, our Technical Authority and Inventor of the IWEX technology, presented how we improve AIM with advanced ultrasonic 2D and 3D imaging technology for non-destructive testing during the first edition of the India Energy Week in Bangalore.
His presentation illustrated the limitation of traditional inspection technologies based on RT and manual UT, and how IWEX, based on the principles of full matrix capture ultrasonic data, enhances this technology by using a reconstruction algorithmic to generate comprehensive 2D and 3D images.
