Material integrity and quality control
Hydro testing is performed to confirm the pipe we manufacture meets the pressure requirements of API and customer specifications.
Our pipe is processed through one of our two ultrasonic testing machines to test the integrity of the completed welds. Ultrasonic shear and compression waves are passed through the weld and heat affected zones at multiple angles to scan for possible imperfections.
Real Time Radiography utilizes penetrating x-radiation that passes through the pipe and onto a digital detector that transmits the images to computer monitors for evaluation.
