Design and development of a long-range ultrasonic testing (LRUT) system as well as the optimization of hydrostatic testing for the inspection of gas transmission pipelines

Plant Location: Bushehr - Iran

Client: National Iranian Gas Company-Bushehr Province Gas Company

Date: 2014

Completed Date: Ongoing

Director project: Prof. Farhang Honarvar

Project faculty members: Dr. Soheil Nakhodchi

Project type: Laboratory/ Pilot Plant Implementation

Project collaborator: K. N. Toosi University of Technology (KNTU) 

Summary of project:

Recent studies show that the Hydrotesting as the most common method employed for the pipeline integrity may cause damages to the structure, however, it might also improve some mechanical properties of the pipelines. Due to the growing use of hydrotesting of the pipelines in oil and gas industries, the first part of the project was therefore devoted to studying standards and procedures of this technique in order to provide all technical requirements and optimized instructions. Furthermore, at the second part of the project, a new emerging technique so-called Long Range Ultrasonic Testing (LRUT) was designed, developed and implemented in order to replace the traditional Hydrostatic testing. This reliable and cost-effective technique takes advantage of guided waves to inspect and screen pipelines for damages at the long distances in a pulse-echo configuration mode.
