The World Conference and Exhibition on Non-Destructive Testing (WCNDT) is one of the most important events in the world for the industry. The 17th WCNDT will be held in Shanghai, China from the 26-28 October 2008.

SGS Industrial Services and the SGS NDT Training and Examination Centre will use this opportunity and present their services. Visit us on Stand Number C331.
At the SGS Stand, Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) experts will demonstrate live how advanced NDT technologies like Guided Wave or Long Range UT inspection work. This year's topic is a total integrity service package for both Storage Tanks and Process piping.

Pipelines: Guided Wave Inspection

The guided wave technology, which will be demonstrated live by Inspectors at the SGS Stand at the WCNDT in Shanghai, screens pipe work for metal loss features such as corrosion and erosion. It is suitable for application to pipelines and process piping including road crossings, jetty lines and corrosion under insulation inspection generally, and can be used without any scaffolding, digging or insulation removal.

Guided Wave (PDF 1046 KB) uses a low frequency guided ultrasound traveling along the pipe, providing 100% coverage of the pipe wall. In normal applications, tens of meters of pipe work can be inspected from a single location. To see how guided wave equipment works, visit us at the WCNDT on Stand C331 or visit
