Offshore Platforms and Structures above water

The offshore oil and gas industry is by definition a harsh environment. Naturally this is a space where regular maintenance checks, inspections and testing utilizing suitable offshore-focused survey equipment are paramount to ensure ultimate safety. Typical uses of NDT thickness gauges within the offshore environment include:

  • Oil and natural gas platform surveys
  • Decommissioning of oil platforms
  • Jetties and pontoon surveys
  • Pipeline inspection

Multiple Echo Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge for Platforms and Structures above water

Cygnus Multiple Echo ultrasonic NDT thickness gauges are designed by a team who have years of experience in designing for these harsh and demanding environments – including potentially explosive atmospheres. The key is that we keep it simple so that you can measure through paint and protective coatings quickly and effectively while not being distracted from the operation around you. Meanwhile our Multiple Echo technique quietly and effectively ensures a reliable thickness measurement is always given. These features are wrapped up in some of the toughest enclosures for electronics that you can find.

The Cygnus 1 Ex allows for measurements in explosive atmospheres

The Cygnus 2+ Hands Free is ideal for rope access or belt mounted work with its end-on display

The Cygnus 4 General Purpose is our all-round thickness gauge with a bright, backlit LCD display and high temperature measurement feature

The Cygnus 6+ offers A-scan, manual gain control and comprehensive data logging with auto-log function and high temperature measuring capability

Cygnus ultrasonic thickness gauge is ideal for accurately measuring the thickness of remaining metal on oil platforms and rigs.

Nondestructive measurements of all structures.
