A model of the in-line inspection tool was on display as part of the collective stand of the Russian Federation, where Transneft was one of the official partners.
The joint-stock company had on display mockup models of proprietary in-line inspection tools (ILIT): an ultrasonic (WM) defectoscope and a combined magnetic ultrasonic in-line defectoscope (MFL + WM + CD).
Abroad the basic part of in-line inspection works was conducted in Iran, where 1,342 km of pipelines were inspected using multichannel geometry tools and magnetic defectoscopes MFL and TFI.
Most of work for diagnostics of oil pipelines was carried out at the TOP of Transneft Far East, LLC (3,969.5 km), Transneft Siberia, JSC (3,683.6 km) and Transneft – East, LLC (3,059.5 km) Km).
Models of own-produced combined defectoscopes: magnetic (MFL + TFI) and magnetic ultrasonic (MFL+WM+CD) were presented as part of the exposition.
The parties discussed the question of extension of the cooperation between Transneft Diascan, JSC, and Belarusian oil transport companies in the area of technical inspection of pipelines.
It is for the first time that CD type sensors, which have several angles of the ultrasonic signal input into the pipe wall, are used. The use of these sensors allows to obtain additional information about defects, both in the longitudinal and in the transverse directions, as well as in the welds.
The company’s booth displayed a dummy model of a combined magnetic defectoscope with axial and circumferential magnetization (MFL + TFI). The device is a unique development of Transneft Diascan.
As part of the exhibition stand the enterprise presented a model of ultrasonic in-line inspection tool (WM).
Experts of the Minproject (EAD), the notified body of Bulgaria, issued approval of the quality management system of production of 40-ДМУ.01 – the device which in 2016 obtained the European certificate of compliance with the requirements of the directive АТЕХ.
