RTD™ laser inspection

External corrosion can be inspected by mapping the area with laser technology. This technique is based on the reflection of laserlight on a surface.

External Corrosion Mapping

The complete geometry of an area with corrosion is recorded in X-Y-Z-coordinates. After specialised analysis, the surface will be plotted in a 2D-colour map and can even be plotted in 3 dimensions (3D).

The data has a high resolution and are very accurate.

     

  • Automated reporting onsite
  •  

  • Determine fast the Deepest point, Length and Width
  •  

  • Possible saving of inspection time
  •  

  • Easy applying of Corrosion treshold and Interaction rules
  •  

  • Generating worstcase profiles
  •  

  • Burstpressure calculations based on non-conventional methods (for example RSTRENG and FEM)
  •  

  • Possible saving of repairs
