Transkor at 6th Middle East Non-Destructive Testing Conference & Exhibition
6th Middle East Non-Destructive Testing Conference & Exhibition was held at Gulf International Convention Centre (Kingdom of Bahrain) on October 7-10, 2012.
Pipeline Integrity evaluation program based on Magnetic Tomography Method data of registered values of mechanical stress was of great interest to the exhibition visitors.
Management of pipeline operation risks and planning of pipeline repairs for non-pigable pipeline is much easier now because of this new сoncept developed in our center. The main principals of the concept: rupture strength parameters evaluation Ps, SCF, ERF (ASME BG31, API, DNV, FEM) is possible solely on MTM data without measuring pipe defects' geometry as it is done in generally accepted methods of its calculation.
Additionally, monitoring and detection of any kind of corrosion (both external and internal) defects has simplified сonsiderably.
Today, due to inspection using AQUA MTM technology co-developed with Petronas (Malaysia) the safety level of sub sea (offshore) pipeline systems with a risk of inadmissible sags could be increased.
