“SERVING THE MIDWEST
This our buggy system preparing to scan a joint of 5 1/2” drill pipe
This procedure covers the upset to upset scanning of steel drill pipe tubes for transverse flaws using flux leakage detection equipment, and determination of tube wall thickness using gamma ray radiation, magnetic wall or ultrasonic wall monitoring equipment.
We use a buggy style system with a DC coil as our flux leakage detection equipment.
Also included in this inspection procedure….
Visual Tube, OD gauge, UT wall thickness, and MPI slip/upset
We can now provide up to a Category 5 inspection.
Benefits of this service:
Removal of defective pipe which can cause problems down hole
Longevity of drill string
Assurance that the drill string is at its maximum performance capacity
MPI of the upset
