FIRST Company

(INSPECTION AND LIFTING DIVISION)

1- Conventional Inspection Services

FIRST COMPANY has been carrying our


conventional inspection services in Egypt for more
than 10 years and has an experienced team consisting
of qualified inspectors to undertake this work. We
have used the latest techniques to build on our success,
enabling us to provide our clients with a safer, quicker
and reliable service.Through our work we have the
knowledge, expertise and experience to perform
conventional NDE inspections from our offices and
project network.Our conventional services include:
NDE/NDT Inspections, Liquid Penetrant, Magnetic Particle, Radiographic, Ultrasonic,
Visual Inspection, Electromagnetic Testing, Remote Visual Inspection and Quality
Assurance.

1.1 Liquid Penetrant (LP)

FIRST COMPANY utilizes Liquid Penetrant


inspection to detect surface discontinuities in both
ferromagnetic and non-ferromagnetic materials. In
castings and forgings, these may be cracks or leaks
in new products or fatigue cracks in in-service
components.

Testing is performed using visible red dyes under


visible light conditions or fluorescent dyes under
ultraviolet light. As the name implies, the dyes
penetrate into the surface discontinuities by capillary action.After the excess material is
removed from the material being tested, indications will appear. Evaluation and
classification of material is based on code or customer requirements.

1.2 Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI)

MPI detects surface and near-surface imperfections such as


cracks, seams and laps in ferromagnetic materials, and is used
to assess location, size, shape and extent of these
imperfections.When the test object is magnetized, flaws
perpendicular to the magnetic field direction cause flux
leakage.Magnetic particles applied to the surface are held at

24 East Autostrad Buildings, Sakr Korish, Maadi, Cairo, Egypt


Tel:(+2)(02)27491365 Fax:(+2)(02)27491406 Mobile:01221732510
Website:www.first-env.comE-mail:info@first-env.com Customer Service:01002227145
the location of the imperfection by flux leakage. In this magnetic particle testing technique,
dry particles are dusted onto the surface of the test object as the item is magnetized.

Dry particle inspection is well suited for the inspections conducted on rough surfaces. When
an electromagnetic yoke is used, the AC or half wave DC
current creates a pulsating magnetic field that provides
mobility to the powder.

The primary applications for dry powders are unground welds


and rough as-cast surfaces.

Dry particle inspection is also used to detect shallow


subsurface cracks. Dry particles with half wave DC is the best approach when inspecting
for lack of root penetration in welds of thin materials.

Half wave DC with prods and dry particles is commonly used when inspecting large
castings for hot tears and cracks.

1.3 Radiographic Testing (RT)

Conventional Radiography (RT) is a nondestructive


examination method that uses X-ray and Gamma ray for
detecting internal imperfections, for measuring wall thickness
and for detection of corrosion. With RT, the material is exposed
to a homogenous ray from a radioactive isotope or an X-ray
tube while a negative film is positioned behind the material to
be examined.After development of the film, thickness and
density differences (material imperfections) will show as blackness differences.Acceptance
criteria define whether or not the indication is non-acceptable (a defect) or not.FIRST
COMPANY licensed technicians and equipment meet all the ROK
radiography regulations.

FIRST COMPANY pipeline inspection capability benefits from


decades of experience in the pipeline industry. Our procedures
meet standard inspection specifications for Workmanship
Acceptance Criteria or Alternative Acceptance.We ensure that
welding repairs are kept to a minimum by providing welders with
quick and accurate process control feedback derived from our inspection data.

1.4 Radiographic Testing (Close Proximity)

Conventional Radiography is a nondestructive examination method


that uses X-ray and Gamma ray for detecting internal imperfections.

Tel:(+2)(02)27491365 Fax:(+2)(02)27491406 Mobile:01221732510
Website:www.first-env.comE-mail:info@first-env.com Customer Service:01002227145
FIRST COMPANY introduced Close Proximity Radiography to
Egypt in early 2006. Radiography provides a quality, cost
effective, permanent record with high volume capabilities due to
simple operation and portability. However, its use is restricted by
the inherent risks associated with the use of radiation and the need
to establish and manage a controlled area during the process. The
associated problems are greatly reduced by the use of the Small
Controlled Area Radiography (SCAR) system. SCAR has set the precedent for safer
working in the industry.

1.5 Ultrasonic Testing

FIRST COMPANY Provides Manual


(Conventional) Ultrasonic Testing and Automated
Ultrasonic Testing. Both techniques transmit
ultrasound through a material and receive the
reflected echoes from the back wall or from any
defects.

This makes it possible to locate discontinuities in a


material or weld. During Manual Ultrasonic Testing
the operator measures the material thickness by
reading from the screen.UT uses high frequency ultrasonic waves to detect surface breaking
and internal imperfections, measures material thickness and determines acceptance or
rejection of a test object based on a reference code or standard.Our UT techniques provide
instant results, and are sensitive to both surface and subsurface discontinuities throughout
the material. UT is capable of detecting imperfections throughout the entire material
thickness, and may be used with access to only one surface.

1.6 Positive Material Identification

FIRST COMPANYs Positive Material Identification (PMI)


quickly and accurately identifies the composition of more than
100 different engineering alloys onsite.FIRST COMPANY can
perform PMI on virtually any size or shape of pipe, plate, weld,
welding materials, machined parts or castings. Team performs
both x-ray fluorescence (XRF) and Spark Emission
Spectrography (SES), two methods of conducting a PMI
examination.

Both methods ensure compliance with Process Safety Management (PSM) requirements.

1.8 Remote Visual Inspection

Visual Inspection (VI) is one of the most widely used Non-


Destructive Testing (NDT) methods for the detection of
discontinuities before they develop into major problems. Areas
where visual inspection can be utilized are; poor welding,
corrosion and pitting, general condition monitoring, surface

degradation & defects and protective coating monitoring.

Visual Inspection means the inspection of equipment, structures


or vessels using a combination of the following human senses;
vision, hearing and touch. Visual Inspection often works in
conjunction with a number of the following NDT methods; UT,
EC, MT, PT or RT.

3.1 Internal Rotary Inspection System

FIRST COMPANY has the knowledge, expertise and experience


to perform inspections using a range of systems to inspect tubes
in Heat Exchangers, Air Coolers, Feed Water Heaters,
Condensers and similar items.This allows tubes to be inspected
periodically to detect and size discontinuities e.g. pits, erosion,
cuts, grooves, and wear. Correct technique selection is critical
and depends on the tube material, ferromagnetic or non-
ferromagnetic and the type of discontinuities expected.

Techniques include:

Internal Rotary Inspection System (IRIS)


Eddy Current Testing (ET)
Remote Field Testing (RFT)

Eddy Current Testing, and Remote Field Testing are


electromagnetic techniques and tend to be used as screening
tools in order to select tubes for IRIS, especially in the case of
ferromagnetic materials e.g., Carbon Steels.

3.2 Long Range Guided Ultrasonic

FIRST COMPANY uses the state of the art Wavemaker (4)


which generates waves propagating long distances, even
beneath a layer of insulation. The ultrasound is transmitted
and received from one single location.The response from the
metal loss feature is a function of the depth and
circumferential extent of the metal loss.

Guided Wave tools are available in fixed ring and modular


ring format. The fixed ring designs are suitable for pipe
diameters up to 8-inches. For larger diameters, a modular
ring up to 42-inches has been adopted. Guided Wave
inspections help you to limit follow-up inspection and
maintenance to the areas of real interest where the piping
was found to be defective.

3.3 Ultrasonic Phased Array

FIRST COMPANY uses the state of the art OmniScan MX

Website:www.first-env.comE-mail:info@first-env.com Customer Service:01002227145
Mainframe with Phased Array TOFD Acquisition Modules, combined with multipurpose
scanners and modulators.

Phased Array (PA) provides sharper detection capability for off-angle cracks, and is capable
of displaying multiple presentations simultaneously. PA applies computer-controlled
excitation to individual elements in a multi-element probe. It is an advanced pulse-echo
technique that utilizes multiple miniaturized transducers and time-delays to shape the
ultrasonic sound beam to a desired angle and focus. The versatility of the system permits
simultaneous views of different presentations, such as sectoral views as well as A-Scan, B-
Scan and C-Scan representations.

When compared with manual pulse-echo techniques, the


advantages of Phased Array testing are its excellent repeatability,
increased inspection speed, more accurate results. Moreover, PA
allows the digital storage of all data, location and system settings,
and is very much safer to operate within a working environment,
compared with Non-Destructive Testing methods that use X-rays
and gamma rays for detecting imperfections

3.4 Automated Ultrasonic Inspection

FIRST COMPANY has the knowledge, expertise and experience


to perform Phased Array and automated ultrasonic (AUT) on
both onshore and offshore operations. We use different
technologies from several manufacturers to provide complete
automated inspection capabilities. FIRST COMPANYs AUT
capability has been used on a variety of projects and for
numerous clients. Pipe sizes inspected have ranged from 5 to
48, wall thickness from 12mm to 33mm and to a variety.AUT uses conventional and
specialized transducers to introduce sound in the test materials. These transducers are
mounted to automated robotic crawlers, which articulate to cover large areas of the vessel
or piping surface. The data collected is then displayed in color in multiple A-Scan, B-Scan,
C-Scan and D-Scan images.
A-scan representation is the view in which the signal amplitude
is shown as a vertical excursion from the horizontal sweep time
trace.The B-scan and D-scan presentations are two-dimensional
views of cross-sectional planes through the test object on
different axis. This imaging is helpful in distinguishing mid-wall
inclusions such as laminations and blistering, from back-wall
discontinuities like erosion and corrosion.

The C-scan image is a two-dimensional plan view of the object. Indication of depth is color
coded to provide the image with qualities, which resemble a
topographical map viewed from the inspecting surface.

3.5 Magnetic Flux Leakage

FIRST COMPANY has the knowledge, expertise and


experience to perform Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL) on tanks.

We use the MFL 2000 which is a high speed, motorized


magnetic flux leakage corrosion detection scanner capable of
inspecting approximately 8000 square feet per shift.The
ergonomic design, coupled with the latest magnetic technology
have resulted in an easy to operate, accurate, reliable and cost
effective inspection tool.The motorized scanner takes all the
strain giving you more consistent results and less operator
dependency.

Key Features High Speed, Cost Effective Inspection

Easy to Use Ergonomic Design


Automatic Defect Detection System
Minimal Maintenance Requirement

The MFL 2000 corrosion detection floor scanner from Silverwing is a combination of
magnetic technology and customer led ergonomic mechanical design. The system is
designed specifically with the operator in mind and the availability of a new consistent high
quality magnetic material has allowed a complete redesign of the MFL 2000. In addition the
new mechanical design has overcome some of the more difficult and time consuming set-up
procedures and also eliminated the vulnerable cabling, so reducing maintenance costs.

3.6 Time of Flight Diffraction

FIRST COMPANY uses the state of the art OmniScan MX 2


Mainframe with Phased Array ToFD Acquisition Modules,
combined with multipurpose scanners and modulators.

With ToFD, a single line scan of a pair of angle compression


wave probes held at a fixed separation can provide full
volumetric coverage of both weld and heat affected zone
(HAZ) and generate an immediate scale image of through wall
condition with defects shown in true location and size. The
wide beam used defines the test surface by generating a lateral
wave and the inner surface by reflections off the material

backwall. Any anomalies lying between these two surfaces are highlighted by signals
diffracted and reflected off their extremities. The lateral location and length of these
discontinuities is reported as a function of encoded scan position.(ToFD), which was
originally developed for crack-sizing in nuclear applications, established itself as a widely
used tool for flaws detection in welds. This unique ultrasonic technique has big advantages
in speed, detection of defects and is the most accurate defect sizing technique in general
use. One of the important advantages of using ToFD for weld inspection is the absence of
radiation. Furthermore, in several validation projects ToFD has proved itself to be a
technique which combines a high detection rate with a very high reliability in pre-service
and in-service inspections.

to provide a quick and convenient approach to many jobs,
particularly preheat and Post-weld Heat Treatment (PWHT).

Advanced automated systems control and document welding preheat to reduce thermal
stress in two primary ways. First, it drives off moisture that would release hydrogen that
could penetrate the steel and cause porosity and subsequent cracking. Second, it reduces
heat loss to the surrounding metal, minimizing the rate of weld hardening and allowing
hydrogen that is present to escape.

5.3 Post-weld Heat Treatment

Carefully controlled PWHT is a crucial step in maximizing the life of your process
equipment. PWHT tempers the metal and reduces tensile stresses, minimizing the risk of
brittle fracture, stress, corrosion cracking and metal fatigue. This is especially important for
equipment used in harsh service environments.

5.4 Combustion Heat Treatment

FIRST COMPANY has burners that will deliver an astonishing


100 million BTUs.In addition to multiple safety interlocks and
redundancies, these systems feature a turndown ratio of 100:1,
which allows FIRST COMPANY to vary heat output from
candle intensity to full blast in increments as small as 1F/hour.
Output from 20HP blowers varies from 500 CFH to 168,000 CFH to ensure that heat is
distributed evenly regardless of a vessels geometryFIRST COMPANY Combustion Heat
Treating method may be used in a variety of applications including Post-weld Heat
Treatment, Refractory Dry Out and Process Startup.Post-weld Heat Treatment: Carefully
controlled post-weld heat treatment.

Refractory Dry Out: The secret to long refractory life is a professional Dry out using FIRST
COMPANYs high-velocity combustion systems to ensure that every inch of your
refractory is heated under control as tight as one degree per hour.

Process Startup: It is well known that process heaters are


designed for a small range of temperatures. FIRST
COMPANYs high-velocity combustion systems feature
exceptional turndown ratios (100:1), so they can be
programmed to increase from candle-heat to process heat in
tightly controlled increments. It is the best way to minimize
thermal stress and ensure long run-times in cyclone boilers,
CFBs, steel mills, glass plants and other process applications.
