VPT - creates drones for ultrasonic inspection
in the oil and gas industry
will present the session, Using Autonomous Drones for Ultrasonic Inspection
of Flare Stacks Today, at 9:10 am on January 31st.
EXPERIMENTAL ULTRASONIC INSPECTION
USING PULSE ECHO METHOD
The emergency inspections require an ultrasonic inspection
of all fan blades in this type of engine.
The order, which it initially proposed in August following an incident in 2016, will require ultrasonic inspection
within the next six months of the fan blades on all CFM56-7B engines that have accrued a certain number of takeoffs.
Inspection guidelines from ASTM A903 (Magnetic Particle Inspection) and ASTM A609 (Ultrasonic Inspection
) can be used to determine minimum fracture toughness values based on an appropriate inspection level when considering fracture mechanics during design.
At least 70 additional cracks were uncovered at the Tihange 2 nuclear reactor during an ultrasonic inspection
in April of this year, Belga reported.
The broken shaft was returned to the Tier 2 supplier for analysis, prompting the parts maker to implement an ultrasonic inspection
system for similar parts.
For starters, EGA Jebel Ali was the first smelter complex in the Middle East to use the completely new HE continuous furnaces for heat treatment (known as homogenisation), together with a 100 per cent ultrasonic inspection
system and two sawing machines.
The ultrasonic inspection
technique works in much the same way as it would if one went to the doctor's office.
Reportedly, all of these structures will be fabricated in Orbital ATK's Large Structures Centre of Excellence (COE) in Iuka, Mississippi, employing advanced fibre placement and hand lay-up processes, automated machining and ultrasonic inspection
