MISTRAS’ NDT solutions for pipelines in the new construction phase help ensure assets are constructed safely and in compliance, with solutions including traditional and advanced radiography (RT), ultrasonics (UT), and more.
At the new construction stage of a pipeline’s life, not having the proper tests and inspections performed on assets can lead to an array of problems down the line. Inspection is necessary to help ensure the asset will perform safely and effectively and comply with all industry codes during operations.
Using advanced and traditional non-destructive testing (NDT) services and data management software and services to guide construction, mapping, planning, and routing of pipelines, MISTRAS can fully handle all aspects of protecting and optimizing new midstream assets.
MISTRAS employs digital radiography (DR) and automated ultrasonics (AUT) advanced NDT services to help ensure asset integrity in newly-constructed pipelines.
DR inspection services encompass several types of advanced radiography like computed radiography (CR), real-time radiography (RTR), and ART crawlers. These inspections are time-effective and safe, offering improved evaluation, image storage, productivity, and more.
MISTRAS’ SMART and Through Wall ART Crawler systems are innovatively-designed inspection tools that utilize DR to search for issues within insulated and uninsulated pipelines. This unique technology can inspect 100% of a pipeline in the time it typically takes to inspect 10% using manual methods, and can also inspect in-service piping, with product still flowing through them, therefore eliminating the need for costly shutdowns.
In addition, the crawlers allow operators to review inspection video and radiographic results simultaneously for faster data collection, processing, and analysis, subsequently cutting down on time, safety hazards, and overall budget.
AUT inspection services accurately detect damages in pipelines and can supply accurate data as an important tool for risk identification and assessment. Our technicians anticipate the entirety of a project and the asset needs when considering a solution, with your pipeline’s integrity and safety as the bottom line.
AUT pipeline solutions include:
MISTRAS’ traditional NDT services are classic methods that are trusted in detecting defects to ensure integrity.
MISTRAS offers GIS software and services for engineers and pipeline operators in new pipeline construction. These cost-effective solutions for applications include:
Route planning & mapping are conducted with design software modules, allowing the planned pipeline route to avoid specific areas of concern. Construction data gathering can also be conducted at this stage with FASTtrackGIS and compliance services, saving time and money.
MISTRAS’ Plant Condition Monitoring Software (PCMS) helps operators to store and analyze their asset integrity data in a centralized, easily-accessible database throughout the lifetime of their pipeline. Besides storing and managing data, the program can track activities from multiple pipelines that inspectors need for review. PCMS is the industry-leading inspection database management system (IDMS) for mechanical integrity (MI) data management anytime.
