LRUT – Long Range Ultrasonic Testing : ANS technicians offer Long Range Ultrasonic Testing – LRUT has been employed for screening piping systems above ground as a result of the high production coverage rates as opposed to manual techniques, but it still remains the only reliable technique for screening pipe systems underground or underwater where access is often limited or very costly to gain access for manual contact techniques. The technology continues to be improved and the number of applications utilizing this system has greatly expanded.
Advantages of LRUT
- High productivity inspection with long-range coverage and rapid screening
- Ability to scan pipes with limited access
- 100% screening coverage of pipe wall
- Cost effective solution for pipe integrity management programs
- In service inspection(no production shutdown)
