The main purpose of upgrading the ultrasonic device was to improve the efficiency of detecting defects located in dents.
Its ultrasonic diagnostic method does not require use of immersion fluid and is based on direct and inverse electromagnetic-acoustic transduction.
Sergey Matrosov, a multiskilled machine operator at Transneft Diascan, received the Honoured Oil Industry Worker title. Aleksandr Kharitonov, a truck driver, received a diploma of merit from the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation.
The protected technical solution is designed to expand the operational capabilities of the magnetic system during inline inspections due to a reduction of its diameter.
The upgraded version of the tool has a new MFL measuring system with a 20% higher sensibility enabling it to register small-size flaw dispersion field.
The new version gives the EMS such advantages as possibilities for better integration with other management systems standards, implementation of measures designed to protect the environment from negative impact and depletion, with stronger emphasis on monitoring environmental performance.
The ISO 50001:2011 certificate is an indication that the Company can manufacture products and render services with the minimum risk for the environment, while ensuring maximum energy efficiency and power safety.
The inspection efforts were carried out under the integrated programme for diagnostic inspection of pipelines and facilities of Transneft PSs for 2018.
As one of the largest enterprises of the district, Transneft Diascan represented the city district of Lukhovitsy at the invitation of the local administration.
