Robotic Inspection Solutions for Recovery Boilers
Brett Farina, Pulp and Paper Manager, and Bryan Harrison, NDE and Mechanical Integrity Solutions Advisor, lead an introduction to Rapid Ultrasonic Gridding (RUG) and Magnetic Induction (MI), two robot-enabled techniques that provide efficient, accurate, and full coverage recovery boiler inspections.
Robotic Solutions for Asset Reliability
From crawlers to drones, inspection robots have displayed many benefits in gathering NDT data. Solving challenges of downtime, data inaccuracies, and being reactive in asset reliability is made easy with the right technology and tools for your plant. Join David Vatz, Pulp & Paper Industry Manager, in Robotic Solutions for Asset Reliability, as he reviews the advantages and disadvantages of using robotic solutions via crawlers, drones, and pigs.
Understanding RBI Confidence Scores
RBI was established to form protocols on methods and frequency of inspection based on information and assessed risks. Join Preston Canada, Oil & Gas Industry Director, for Understanding RBI Confidence Scores, as he discusses RBI inspection techniques and coverage, and compares the cost of inspection vs. the confidence score per RBI standards.
Rapid UT Gridding for Acid Equipment
Learn about new technologies for rapid, detailed, cost-effective and safe robotic UT inspection used for piping, pressure vessels, and tanks. RUG can be performed on various forms of equipment at acid plants, reducing cost and plant downtime, while improving plant safety. Join Chris Wolfe, Oil & Gas Industry Manager, for Rapid UT Gridding for Acid Equipment as he discusses RUG inspection techniques and coverage for MONDI piping, carbon steel assets, and stainless steel tank floors.
Rapid Ultrasonic Gridding for Fixed Equipment
Rapid Ultrasonic Gridding, or RUG, is an NDE method giving repair and maintenance teams the ability to capture millions of A-scan data points at a much faster rate than traditional thickness measuring techniques. Join Preston Canada, Oil & Gas Industry Director, for Rapid Ultrasonic Gridding for Fixed Equipment, as he discusses RUG inspection techniques and benefits, and deep dives into the robotic platforms that replace the manual 1"x1" grid method and single-transducer AUT.
Inspecting with Ultrasound
Robots performing Rapid Ultrasonic Gridding (RUG) use immersion transducers to capture ultrasound data when in the field inspecting assets or fixed equipment. What does validation look like when you extract as much data as possible when detecting defects? Join Kevin Low, Mechanical Engineer III, and Scott Corl, Software Engineer, for Inspecting with Ultrasound as they discuss ultrasound basics, data collection and processing, and go through real world examples using robotic technology in inspections.
