Applus+ is providing NDT services for one of the largest energy infrastructure providers in North America. The ongoing project covers a pipeline segment approximately 60 miles in total in the Colorado, Wharton, Fort Bend, and Brazoria Counties of Texas.
Applus+ is providing NDT services in support of this development, including the use of RTD Rayscan and Rotoscan inspection systems. RTD Rayscan is a real-time digital radiographic (RTR) advanced technology utilizing direct radiography (DR) techniques. It involves the filmless conversion of data into a high-resolution digital image of an entire weld and can be performed within a single scan. The RTD Rotoscan system is an Automated Ultrasonic Testing (AUT) technique developed in house to detect and measure welding imperfections within the weld and associated heat-affected zone.
