Zetec to host webinar on austenitic weld inspections in oil & gas sectors


Zetec Inc, a global leader in NDT solutions, will host a one-hour webinar on how to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of austenitic weld inspections. The webinar will showcase improvements related to upstream, midstream, downstream and petrochemical sectors across a wide range of applications, from flow pipes, blowout preventers and corrosion resistant alloy (CRA) pipelines to heavy-wall stainless steel process pipes.

The live webinar will be offered in two sessions:
Wednesday 13 December, 6.00 pm-7.00 pm GMT, and Thursday 14 December, 3.00 pm-4.00 pm GMT.
A recorded version will be available for later viewing.

The sessions will focus on using phased array ultrasonic testing (PAUT) to enable more productive and robust austenitic weld inspections in lieu of radiographic testing (RT). Demonstrations will include:

  • A technique involving a series of standard dual matrix array probes and wedge assemblies that can easily be set up using a portable but high-power phased array unit and its embedded software
  • A single powerful software platform that can support all steps of the examination process, including comprehensive visualisation of the data and efficient data analysis
  • An analysis of ultrasonic data from practical trials on various representative austenitic weld specimens containing artificial and realistic flaws.

With more stringent environmental and process requirements in the oil & gas industry, there is a need for efficient, productive volumetric NDT techniques. This webinar can help with understanding how to improve the efficiency and performance of austenitic weld inspections.
