Aurora, Colorado (PressExposure) September 30, 2008 -- EnerisQ International, LLC announced today that it will represent phased array OMNIScanÂ® pipeline inspection services to its global base of energy industry customers effective immediately. OMNIScan, an Olympus technology allows for rapid and accurate weld inspection and crack detection as its primary industrial application.
Phased array technology holds an advantage over conventional UT due to its ability to use multiple elements to steer, focus and scan beams with a single transducer assembly. Beam steering, commonly referred to sectorial scanning, can be used for mapping components at appropriate angles. This can greatly simplify the inspection of components with complex geometry. The small footprint of the transducer and the ability to sweep the beam without moving the probe also aids inspection of such components in situations where there is limited access for mechanical scanning. Sectorial scanning is also typically used for weld inspection. The ability to test welds with multiple angles from a single probe greatly increases the probability of detection of anomalies.
Other robotic pipelines services available include: online and in service (OTIS) robotic tank inspection and cleaning, 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.
