5. 3D-VISONIC™ VIRTUAL IMAGING

The latest technology required to reach the world's deepest oil and gas well depth, is Technical Industries, Inc., proprietary latest innovation. Now our customers can view, (walk) the pipe from inside, outside, and as a flat plate, stop at any point and view the wall thickness, and condition of the pipe. By using the proper algorithm you can calculate the burst rate, collapse rate, and (tensile strength) pull rate of each joint, obtain a permanent record, and by comparing recent inspections to previous ones, thus enabling the client to project future life expectancy, and usage of the pipe.

6. FULL BODY DIGITAL 64 POINTS AVERAGE DATA WALL PACKAGE

1) Includes the calculations of all the readings within 1/4" CSA slice.
2) Recording the minimum, maximum & the average of the 64 points (1/4" each) of the CSA slices. Offered only with Full Length UT TI-18 which includes scanning the pipes for defects every 22.5 degrees along the surface of the pipe.
 

7. VISONIC™ VIRTUAL IMAGING TI-18

This Technical Industries, Inc., proprietary technology provides a virtual image of the inspected pipe in a 1/4" (CSA) helix. The data is stored on a server. This provides the customer with a 3D view of the pipe condition of the inside and the outside. Also the pipe can be viewed as a flat plate. The customer can stop at any point and examine the condition and read the wall thickness within 2/1000" accuracy. By using the proper algorithm, the customer can calculate the burst, collapse, and tensile strength of each pipe. The customer will be able to compare previous conditions to a recent one and be able to project future life expectancy of the pipe. This service is provided with Full Length UT TI-18 which includes scanning the pipes for defects every 22.5 degrees along the surface of the pipe.


8. ELECTRONIC DATA TRANSMISSION

This technology includes the recordation of all wall thickness data of the pipe, and provides 360 wall thickness readings for each 1/4" CSA slice all along the length of the pipe. One reading for each degree along the circumference of the 1/4" CSA slice. The data is compiled using Technical Industries, Inc., proprietary software in order to display the pipe in 3D virtual imaging. This service is offered in conjunction with Full Length UT TI-18 Visonic™ services.


9. TECHLOG FULL BODY ELECTROMAGNETIC INSPECTION, FOUR (4) FUNCTIONS

Cradle Load Photograph Usually used for pipe with wall thickness not to exceed 0.430" using Technical Industries' four-function electromagnetic inspection unit, oil country tubular, in sizes 2-1/16 inch through 13-3/8 inch diameter, can be scanned for longitudinal, transverse and wall thickness anomalies, plus pipe grade verification.

To locate the longitudinal anomalies, a transversely oriented active magnetic field is induced into the tubular to be inspected as the pipe is conveyed through the inspection unit. Transducers, fixed at a ninety-degree (90°) angle as referenced to the magnetic field, detect "flux leakage" caused by any imperfection whose depth and orientation coincide with the longitudinal calibration and are recorded on a strip chart for later investigation.

To locate transverse and three-dimensional anomalies, a longitudinal magnetic field is induced into the pipe body, generating a magnetic field in excess of 850 free air gauss. Eight detection shoes, containing transducers, ride on the outside surface of the tubular being inspected. All "flux leakage" caused by transverse or three-dimensional anomalies are recorded on a strip chart for further investigation.

To examine the pipe wall to determine acceptable wall thickness, a radioactive beam and a detector mechanism are used (gamma ray). Output of this wall thickness detection system is recorded on a strip chart recorder for further investigation.

To verify pipe grade, a system measuring material permeability against a known standard, is used. If a discrepancy is noticed, an audible warning is generated and is followed by manual confirmation of the pipe grade.


10. TECHSCOPE® ELECTROMAGNETIC TRANSVERSE RACK INSPECTION

Eight electromagnetic transducers mounted inside a circumferential aluminum cylinder designed to fit firmly on the outside surface of the pipe, travels along the length of the pipe searching for transverse defects generated by disrupted longitudinal magnetic field, the process is usually used to inspect used drill pipe (To satisfy API RP 7G Section 10 and used drill pipe DS-1 Inspection Category 3, 4 & 5. TH Hill DS-1 Standard).


11. FULL LENGTH OD GAUGE

The entire length of the tube excluding tool joints or connections will receive OD gauge inspection. If abnormal OD is detected, an ultrasonic compression instrument for wall thickness at maximum wear will inspect the area that records the most OD wear, and the readings will be recorded.


12. FULL BODY MAGNETIC PARTICLE INSPECTION

LONGITUDINAL DEFECTS OD OR ID OF THE ENTIRE TUBE EXCLUDING THREADS.
A circumferential field is induced into the pipe to be inspected, using a capacitive discharge system for longitudinal defects of adequate size for the material being inspected. The full length of the tubular is visually checked or the outside for the inside for any discontinuities. Dry iron powder is than applied to the entire outside or inside surface. All powder accumulations caused by "flux leakage" at the site of an anomaly is probed and if insufficient to cause rejection of the material, are removed and the surface contoured.
