Inspection of Nozzles using the Veo+ and Scannner

Traditional UT inspection is time consuming, creating a scan plan and then performing the scan using multiple transducers. When using the Veo+ and Nozzle Scan the set ups can all be done offsite, thereby substantially reducing and easing site work.


 

SO16 VEO+ Phoenix Nozzle Scan

 

Used throughout industry, nozzles are found on all vessels connecting them to pipework and ancillary items. Each nozzle is unique being related to the vessel and pipe sizes, thickness, angle and material. Traditional UT inspection is time consuming, creating a scan plan and then performing the scan using multiple transducers. When using the Veo+ and Nozzle Scan the set ups can all be done offsite, thereby substantially reducing and easing site work. The scanner is placed onto the nozzle with the correct offset and with one pass the inspection is completed. Because there is no need to change to different angled probes, the speed of inspection is significantly quicker, especially when the Nozzle Scan is coupled up with the Veo+, a very fast PAUT unit. The unit is suitable for use on non-ferrous materials. Post analyses can be performed using UT Studio+, giving the technician the ability to easily identify, characterise and size defects. Detailed reports are available automatically.
