Long Range Ultrasonic Testing

In cooperation with The Welding Institute, FSM provides a technologically advanced ultrasonic system for screening pipes, piping systems, and pipelines for erosion and corrosion and cross-sectional wall loss. The TeleTest is designed for use on piping systems that have limited access. Such piping systems may be buried, elevated, insulated, concrete coated, inserted through sleeves or conductors. The Teletest clamps to a section of the pipe and induces a ringed of ultrasonic wavefront that travels the length of the pipe. The distance that ultrasonic wave can travel is dependent upon the condition of the pipe, number of bends, product flowing through the pipe, pipe coating, etc. As much as 300 meters of pipe can be inspected in a single screening under ideal conditions.
