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.
