Our process of conducting an erosion survey combines Shadow Shot Radio and Ultrasonic Testing (UT). Using both methods allow us to inspect 17â€ of pipe at a time.
20/20 NDTâ€™s process of conducting an erosion survey uses a combined method of Shadow Shot Radiographic and Ultrasonic Testing (UT).
Ultrasonic thickness readings alone only cover an area the size of a pencil eraser with each reading.
Even with multiple readings, it is difficult to guarantee an exact hit on the area of interest.
20/20 NDT combines the ultrasonic testing method with Shadow Shot technology to inspect 17â€ of pipe at one time. If there is any pitting at all, we will be able to see it in the images.
This is a picture of exactly how a Shadow Shot image appears. Note that the pitting is easily detected.
Here is also another picture from a Shadow Shot inspection of frac balls in a pig catcher on a drilling rig near Fort Nelson, British Columbia.
The exact image from each inspection is provided in an electronic form along with the inspection report for a comprehensive review of each result.
