NDT Global announced that its phased array ultrasonic service PROTON was awarded the 2022 ASME Global Pipeline Award at the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Award Ceremony.
This prestigious award promotes progress and international cooperation in the field of pipeline systems engineering. An award of this magnitude is the result of many dedicated and passionate colleagues who are constantly pushing the boundaries of technology and innovation, according to a Nov. 1 announcement.
What initiated as a challenge to solve a customer problem, quickly evolved into an industry-wide solution. NDT Global views pipeline operators are the custodians of the global pipeline network systems and face many challenging circumstances while maintaining the safety of their personnel, operations and community. Understanding the truest condition of any pipeline continues to be the single most important insight an operator can have — it is only through delivering concise insights that operators can make informed pipeline management decisions.
Recently launched at the International Pipeline Conference (IPC) in Calgary, PROTON provides advanced data diagnostics for pipelines. Features are identified and classified to offer relevant information such as feature type and overall context of asset conditions.
“At NDT Global we are fortunate to have an exceptional team of highly skilled and educated professionals with a unique drive for excellence,” the company said in a statement. “Without them, this amazing service and award would not have been possible.”
NDT Global is the leading provider of ultra-high-tech diagnostic inspection solutions, advanced data analysis and Advanced Diagnostic Insight services for ensuring the safety and longevity of energy-sector infrastructure assets. Recognized as the forerunner in ultrasonic inspection technologies comprising Pulse Echo, Pitch-and-Catch and Phased Array, as well as Acoustic Resonance (ART Scan) methodologies, the company also deploys a range of non-ultrasonic technologies, such as Inertial Measurement Units, with more under development.
NDT Global strategically applies its inspection technologies to detect, diagnose and model various types of threat — circumferential or axial cracks, metal loss, geometry, mapping, and more — across diverse classes of assets. By providing predictive, decision-ready insights driven by the world’s most accurate data, NDT Global enables the conditions for asset owners to optimize infrastructure health and drive operational efficiencies while reducing risk and minimizing their carbon footprint.Tags: awards, NDT Global, Ultrasonic Testing (UT)
