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 has the highest possible ATEX rating II 1 G Ex ia IIC T6 Ga ensuring it can be used in the variety of hazardous thickness gauging that could arise offshore.
The Cygnus 4 PLUS logs readings into an SD card and can be connected to a computer through a USB. It offers the facility up bespoke templates, ideal for uniformly shaped objects.
