The instrumental-computer diagnostic complex is designed for on-line inspection of engineering state of pipelines, equipment and structures (including welded joints) using the minimum required number of instruments.
The instrumental-computer diagnostic complex is designed for complex computer processing the information and classification of measurement results with usage of the specialized test techniques.
The instrumental-computer diagnostic complex allows:
Detecting at an early stage mechanical stress concentration zones, which are the main sources of damages initiation
Detecting of specific defects in SC zones and assessing the extent of danger caused by them
Detecting the future crack location, size and propagation direction starting from the level of metal structure
Assessing the real life of equipment
Using the computer data processing and measurement results systematization by special techniques and corresponding programs, to develop preventive measures for assuring safe operation of the inspected units.
Means of engineering diagnostics and non-destructuve testing used by the company at execution of contractual practical works are:
Ultrasonic flaw detectors
Ultrasonic thickness gage
Highly sensitive thermal imager
Eddy-current detectors of surface and subsurface cracks
Metallographic and electronic microscopes
Testing equipment for determining strength, toughness and fatigue characteristics
Various programs for calibrating calculations of strength and crack resistance with residual life forecasting.
