Press Release Author: SGS Industrial Services
Press Release Summary: SGS demonstrates its Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) service package for storage tanks and pipelines, including a live demonstration of special NDT methods such as guided wave inspections.
Press Release Body: The World Conference and Exhibition on Non-Destructive Testing (WCNDT) is one of the most important events in the world for the industry. The 17th WCNDT will be held in Shanghai, China from the 26-28 October 2008.
SGS Industrial Services and the SGS NDT Training and Examination Centre will use this opportunity and present their services. Visit us on Stand Number C331.
At the SGS Stand, Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) experts will demonstrate live how advanced NDT technologies like Tank floor scanning and guided wave inspection work. This year's topic is a total integrity service package for both Storage Tanks and Process piping.
Pipelines: Guided Wave Inspection The guided wave technology, which will be demonstrated live by Inspectors at the SGS Stand at the WCNDT in Shanghai, screens pipe work for metal loss features such as corrosion and erosion. It is suitable for application to pipelines and process piping including road crossings, jetty lines and corrosion under insulation inspection generally, and can be used without any scaffolding, digging or insulation removal.
Guided Wave uses a low frequency guided ultrasound travelling along the pipe, providing 100% coverage of the pipe wall. In normal applications, tens of meters of pipe work can be inspected from a single location. To see how guided wave equipment works, visit us at the WCNDT on Stand C331 or visit www.sgs.com/ndt.
SGS NDT Training and Examination Center SGS carries out training and examinations for NDT experts in its newly opened Training and Examination Center in Shanghai.
As an Authorized Qualifying Body of BINDT, SGS now offers PCN training and examinations according to the EN473 Scheme. The courses and examinations include conventional NDT methods like magnetic particle, liquid penetrant, and visual inspections or radiographic and ultrasonic testing.
For more information about our courses and examinations, visit www.ndt-training.sgs.com or arrange a meeting with our experts at the SGS Stand (No. C331) at the WCNDT.
This is SGS's answer on the increasing demand for high quality inspection services in China by both Western multinationals and local majors.
