ACOUSTIC EMISSION METHOD


Solving the problem of trouble-free operation of the pipeline means early detection
and repair defects of base metal and welded joints, insulating pipes.

Given the fact that the pipelines and field and main are quite extensive and extended
objects, the task of finding of defects is divided into several stages: identifying defects,
their precise location, to determine the degree of danger, effective and high-quality
repairs.

After using any metods (acoustic-emission inspection, electrocorrosion, inspection
pigging) of finding and lokalised of pipelines defection, as a rule, require additional
procedures flaw detection control.

Unlike external defects that are easy to visual control and measurement methods,
internal defects require ultrasonic or magnetic methods and as one of the most
convenient for this purpose - the acoustic emission method.

Basics of the method AE


Coordinates of the defect: 0=[(2-1)-V*(t2-t1)]/2
where V-velocity of the acoustic waves in materials,
t2 - registration time of acoustic wave by sensor (AER) 2
t1 - registration time of acoustic wave by sensor (AER) 1

NTC NEFTEGAZDIAGNOSTIKA
Digital acoustic - emission systems of new generation

Features:
- Non-destructive testing method of AE without
decommissioning: the main, commercial and industrial
pipelines, pressure vessels, tanks, boilers, derricks,
cranes, bridges and other facilities.
- Detection of the birth and development of cracks.
- Search of places of corrosion, leaks, areas with increased
levels of tension.
- Determination of coordinates and estimation of
parameters of defects.
- Monitoring of different processes and assessment of
technical condition of responsible large-scale structures,
extended or particularly dangerous objects in real time.
