Aurora, Colorado (PressExposure) September 07, 2008 -- EnerisQ International, LLC announced today that it will represent Acoustic Emission Test (AET) pipeline and storage tank inspection services to its global base of energy industry services effective immediately. AET is a powerful tool for materials testing and the study of deformation, fatigue crack growth, fracture, oxidation and corrosion.
The Acoustic Emission Inspection was designed to inspect 100 percent of a structure from only a few locations. It gives an immediate indication of the response and behavior of a material under stress, intimately connected with strength, damage and failure. A major advantage of AET is that it does not require access to the entire examination area. In large structures and vessels, permanent sensors can be mounted for periodic inspection of leak detection and structural integrity. Typical advantages of the AET technique include: high sensitivity, early and rapid detection of defects, leaks, cracks etc., on-line monitoring, location of defective regions, minimization of plant downtime for inspection, no need for scanning the whole structural surface and minor disturbance of insulation.
Other robotic pipelines services available include: Guided Wave Ultrasonic Testing (GWUT), Remote Field Testing (RFT), Ultrasonic In-Line Inspection (UTILI), Advanced Pipeline Geometry PIG (APGPIG), Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL), Acoustic Valve Leak Detection (VPAC), Ultrasonic Phase Array (UPA), Expandable Eddy Current Spinner (EECS), In-Line Video Inspection (IVI) and many other tests and solutions for pipelines.
EnerisQ utilizes partners that are highly experienced in providing conventional nondestructive testing services, advanced nondestructive testing services and specialty inspection services. The company's clients benefit from the complimentary services and technical experience to improve productivity and maximize the effectiveness of their inspection budgets. All products and services are designed to be "non-disruptive" which allows for inspection, cleaning, and testing without having to shut down systems.
EnerisQ specializes in online tank inspection and cleaning (OTIS robotics), pipeline integrity testing (UWT), and tubular inspection (NDT). The company also offers the following services and products on a global basis: earth grounding, surge suppression, and remote water purification solutions. Integrated consulting services and vulnerability assessments are available for members of the global energy community as well.
