Oil and Gas Ultrasonic Pipeline Thickness Testing
Oil and gas pipelines are found both on the land and underwater. Usually coated, they can suffer from internal corrosion leading to costly leaks and emergency repair work. Routine thickness gauging checks can assist in the prevention of this. Using the Multiple-Echo technique, Cygnus thickness gauges can read through coatings up to 20 mm thick when used in Deep-Coat mode. This saves time and money removing and reapplying coatings. All our gauges can be used in Multiple-Echo mode providing verified measurements ignoring coatings.
Cygnus ultrasonic thickness gauges are robust to withstand the demanding conditions.
The Cygnus 1 Intrinsically Safe is the only one of its kind in the world, certified to Class 1, Div 1 (“Zone 0”) for ATEX, IECEx and CSA-US. This UT thickness meter can be used in a variety of thickness gauging in hazardous areas and potentially explosive atmospheres.
Incorporating a large LCD display and an intuitive menu, Cygnus 4 PLUS thickness gauge is truly simple to use and facilitates easy reporting with its sequential datalogging.
For professional users, the Cygnus 6+ offers A-scan, manual gain control and comprehensive datalogging with auto-log function, enabling reliable material thickness gauging and hassle-free reporting.
