Oil and Gas UT Pipeline Thickness Testing
Oil and gas pipelines are laid on land and underwater. Very often coated, they can suffer from internal corrosion (and erosion) leading to the risk of leaks and emergency repair work.
Routine ultrasonic thickness gauging checks can assist in the prevention of this. Using the Multiple-Echo technique, Cygnus thickness gauges can measure through coatings up to 0.8 inch thick. This saves both time and money removing and reapplying coatings. All Cygnus gauges can be used in Multiple-Echo mode to provide you with verified measurements that ignore coatings.
Cygnus ultrasonic thickness gauges are robust to withstand the demanding conditions of the downstream oil and gas environment.
The Cygnus 1 Intrinsically Safe is the only thickness meter of its kind in the world, certified to Class 1, Div 1 (“Zone 0”) for ATEX, IECEx and CSA-US. This UT thickness meter can be used in in hazardous areas and potentially explosive atmospheres.
Featuring a large LCD display and an intuitive menu, Cygnus 4 PLUS thickness gauge is extremely simple to use and allows for easy reporting with its sequential datalogging.
The Cygnus 6+ boasts the richest suite of features: A-scan, manual gain control and comprehensive datalogging with auto-log function – all facilitate reliable wall thickness measurement and hassle-free reporting.
