National Grid Engineering Day

National Grid Annual Engineering Meeting

IACS NDT were invited to present at the annual National Grid capital delivery engineering meeting by the National Grid Inspection Manager Alan Kirkham.

A brief and simple presentation was delivered to all those that attended by our resident Level 3 NDT Technician and Technical Director, Michael Michlovsky.

The presentation gave a brief and simplified outline of the NDT methods used on National Grid sites with an emphasis towards the use of advanced Ultrasonic Techniques in lieu of Radiography. The presentation included a live demonstration of Phased Array scanning. The seeded defect pipe weld scanned, and then was interpreted as a group to lift some of the ‘black magic’ rumours among Project Engineers and Management.
