Nondestructive Testing Tools For Pipelines

Belec Compact PortIf mill certificates go missing for a pipeline the easiest way to confirm pipe grade is by using the Belec Compact Port, a Mobile OES metal analyzer in conjunction with the Frontics AIS 2100 portable tensile/yield tester.AISs 2100

By using Mobile OES to analyze the metal for chemical composition, including Carbon, Sulfur and Phosphorus the operator can distinguish between a few grades of API 5L material. Further testing with the Frontics AIS 2100 determines tensile strength and yield strength. Combining the two techniques allows pipeline operators to create traceable records in case Mill Certificates are lost.
