13. FULL BODY MAGNETIC PARTICLE INSPECTION
LONGITUDINAL OD & ID DEFECTS OF THE ENTIRE TUBE EXCLUDING THREADS.

A circumferential field is induced into the pipe to be inspected, using a capacitive discharge system of adequate size for the material being inspected. The full length of the tubular is visually checked on the inside and outside for any discontinuities. Dry iron powder is then applied to the entire outside and inside surface. All powder accumulations caused by "flux leakage" at the site of an anomaly are probed and if insufficient to cause rejection of the material, are removed and the surface contoured.

14. FULL BODY MAGNETIC PARTICLE INSPECTION
LONGITUDINAL & TRANSVERSE OD DEFECTS OF THE ENTIRE TUBE INCLUDING UPSETS, AND EXCLUDING THREADS.

A circumferential field and a longitudinal field is induced into the pipe to be inspected, using a capacitive discharge system and a DC coil for inducing a longitudinal field of adequate size for the material being inspected. The full length of the tubular is visually checked on the outside for any discontinuities. Dry iron powder is then applied to the entire outside surface. All powder accumulations caused by "flux leakage" at the site of the anomaly is probed and if insufficient to cause rejection of the material, are removed and the surface contoured.


15. FULL BODY MAGNETIC PARTICLE INSPECTION
LONGITUDINAL & TRANSVERSE OD & ID DEFECTS OF THE ENTIRE TUBE INCLUDING UPSETS, EXCLUDING THREADS.

A circumferential field is induced into the pipe to be inspected, using a capacitive discharge system for transverse field, and a DC coil for longitudinal field of adequate size for the material being inspected. The full length of the tubular is visually checked inside and out for any discontinuities. Dry iron powder is than applied to the entire outside and inside surfaces. All powder accumulations caused by "flux leakage" at the site of the anomaly is probed and if insufficient to cause rejection of the material, are removed and the surface contoured.


16. CAMERA

Visual inspection of the inside surface of the tubular, using a camera is similar to camvision. Images can be recorded for later viewing.


17. FULL LENGTH DRIFT IN OR NOT IN CONJUNCTION WITH FULL BODY UT OR EMI

The length of the tube is gauged with the mandrel to determine compliance with API or customer internal diameter specifications. If special diameter mandrel is required, the cost of manufacturing will be re-billed to the client.


18. LAMINATION SCANS

To insure that no injurious lamination is present in the end area of plain end pipe that will later be threaded or welded. Using ultrasonic instrumentation, in conjunction with proper ultrasonic transducer, the circumference of the pipe is completely scanned for one inch from the pipe end.


19. DRY SEA MAGNETIC PARTICLE SPECIAL END AREA INSPECTION FOR THREADED PIPE CRITICAL APPLICATION

The dry special end area inspection is performed on ferromagnetic material. The area to be inspected must be thoroughly cleaned before beginning the inspection process. After a visual thread inspection is performed, a DC magnetic field, properly oriented according to the inspection to be performed, is induced into the pipe. Dry iron powder is applied to the area. Any accumulation of powder at the point of flux leakage, caused by an anomaly, will be probed. Should the anomaly be insufficient for rejection of the material, the imperfection will be removed and the area contoured.
