FLAW HUNTER UST9508 is a system specifically for online plate and strip testing in accordance with international oil and gas pipeline standards (API 5L), is used. This test should be performed on at least 25% of the sheet width plus 25 mm from each edge.
The system is capable of detecting reference defects of API 5L international piping standards, which are considered to be a 6 mm deep flat bottom hole for this evaluation. Operator’s ease (Friendly operator) in designing this system has been taken into consideration.
Types of Systems depending on the plate width or sheet tested and the coverage percentage (25 – 100%), It varies between 8 to 100 channels. The system uses T / R probes to increase near-surface resolution, which are arranged by special suspension probe holder mechanism on a plate or sheet surface that cover at least 25% of the sheet width.
