Discover how you can take advantage of digital predictive corrosion management to address the tough problem of corrosion, which causes enormous pains to the oil and gas industry worldwide. 

You will learn how to: 
- Digitize corrosion inspection through installed sensing and cloud analytical solutions 
- Improve data quality through more accurate, higher resolution signals and more frequent collection 
- Enable substantial reduction in cost associated with your high corrosion risk assets 

As aircraft engines are becoming more and more powerful and use more exotic materials, the internal stresses on engine components are increasing. There is a marked increase in the types of assessment of indications sought during an inspection. 

Recently Air India took a new approach to engine inspection in their engine overhaul facility. Using the latest advances in visual inspection technology and software, they increased their probability of detection while drastically reducing inspection times. 

Our thoughts are with all those in the Houston area affected by Hurricane Harvey. 

Remote Visual Inspection using portable video borescopes is a widely accepted practice in the aviaion, power generation and oil & gas industries. However advanced visual inspection equipment has a much wider range of applications across many industries. 

BHGE recently broke ground on its Inspection Technology Customer Solutions Center in Cincinnati, Ohio. The new facility, which will employ as many as 40 people, will help improve integrity, control quality and drive efficiency across oil and gas, additive, aviation and automotive industries.

 

In May 2017, world's leading industrial quality fair took place in Stuttgart, Germany. At the GE booth, a bundle of inspection technology innovations has been launched to exhibit customer solutions especially for industrial X-ray and Computed Tomography inspection.

Can you believe PII Pipeline Solutions RunCom™ service turns 18 this year?

RunCom is the tool used to determine the location and extent of corrosion growth between two or more in-line inspection (ILI) surveys.  Over the last 18 years, RunCom has been used to evaluate corrosion growth in over 160,000km of pipeline - equivalent to having travelled around the world 4 times!    

In December 2016, Kimberlite Research interviewed key decision makers at 51 pipeline companies to learn more about these challenges. In comprehensive, extended interviews, decision makers revealed a wealth of insights on how they manage their pipeline operations today and how they view the role of digital technology.

One of the challenges today’s manufacturing world needs to most urgently tackle is the need to improve productivity. Holger Laubenthal, CEO of GE Inspection Technologies, explains how process automation and sophisticated technology have the potential to unlock some of the much-needed improvement across our world.

Let’s get to the bottom of pits and pinholes in pipelines – PII’s new super-high-resolution UltraScan™ WM+ in line inspection tool achieves customer validation. Read more…
