Applus+ Provides NDT Support on New Pipeline Construction in Texas

16/07/2020

    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. Applus’ experts are also providing additional methods of inspection, including Radiographic Testing (RT) and Magnetic Particle Testing (MT), on this project as it continues through September of 2020.
