Performing full body UT inspection generally leaves untested ends. Current solutions involve manually testing the ends of the pipe, or simply cutting them off. Both methods are time consuming or wasteful.
Tube End System (TES) is world’s first fully automated, API 5L and 5CT compliant tube end inspection system. It is designed to save time and reduce waste.
Tube End System (TES) Advantages
- TES automatically finds both ends of the pipe and precisely tests each end for longitudinal and transverse defects while measuring the wall thickness and providing a coupling check as per the API 5CT standard.
Seriously Smart UT System
- During each test, TES also measures the pipe’s combined bow, eccentricity and ovality and indicates the measured values to the operator. This ensures defective product doesn’t damage threading and other processes down the line.
- Combining Festo and Keyence motion and sensing systems allows TES an unparalleled level of accuracy and repeatability during calibration and testing of products.
