Across Australia, Vertech Group principally utilises conventional pipeline film radiography and digital imaging technology for all onshore pipeline sizes. Through the range and diversity of our group, we are able to provide additional value-adding services including; advanced inspection services, detailed corrosion mapping for in-service pipelines, visual inspection methods and a full suite of other conventional NDT techniques.
These methods include:
- Ultrasonic Testing (UT)
- Long Range Ultrasonic Testing (LRUT)
- Time of Flight Diffraction (ToFD)
- Phased Array (PA)
- Alternating Current Field Measurement (ACFM)
- Pulsed Eddy Current (PEC)
- Magnetic Particle Inspection (MT/MPI)
- Dye Pentetrant Testing (PT/DPI)
- Pipeline X-ray Crawlers
- Eddy Current or Electromagnetic Testing
JME 6:CR2 Pipeline Crawler - Magnetic controlled X-ray internal pipeline crawlers from 6” to 42-inch capabilities. A Magnetope system controls the crawler, this avoids the hassle of a radioactive source being used and stored at clients premises.
180kv-300kv Panaoramix Crawler Tube Head Crawler Kits
Directional X-ray Tubes - Vertech Group utilise the Rigaku Brand 250kv and 300kv directional X- ray tubes for the double-wall single image technique.
Digital Radiography Systems - GE Crx Vision scanners and Rhythm RT software.
Mobile Digital Vans - enabling team to process pipeline data quickly for instant results.
Mobile Van Conventional Processing Facilities
Mobile Truck Mounted Conventional Skids
Vertech Group completed a highly successful project proving our pipeline inspection package. The scope to focused on inspecting interconnecting flowlines that ranged from 3” through to 8” in Diameter and ran from Ballera in South West QLD through to Moomba in South Australia. The project was completed on time and on budget utilising conventional film processing, Rigaku external X-ray systems and JME Crawler systems with mobile truck-mounted labs
BALLERA - SOUTH-WEST QLD
Vertech Group delivered a pipeline inspection package to complete a 17.5 Km, 8” diameter pipeline in Ballera South-West Qld. The team utilised equipment including JME CR2 crawler systems, conventional film processing, mobile darkrooms, and mobile tie in darkrooms. The project was completed safely, ahead of schedule and to a high standard.
