Our proposed innovative and patented NDT services are based on PHONON DIAGNOSTIC technology is based on the latest achievements of Soviet and Russian science – the phenomenon of energy emission from material crystal lattice.
The physical principal of PHONON EMISSION is based on interaction of energy applied to material causing loading of material crystal lattice and occurring of stress. Defective areas of material crystal lattice emit with different Phonon intensity. These parameters are used to detect the areas of material stress and destruction and determine exact location, size, quantity, type and severity of defects.
This Non destructive Testing services based on Phonon diagnostic technology uses special modernized sensors with cable or wireless connection to research class recording equipment with unique technology and software for visual defects localization. It allows to increase the accuracy and reliability of signal recording sensitivity, increase the distance between the sensors, and use more precise methods of identification and classification of defects.
For example, if we need to examine oil or gas pipeline we record the intensity of oil or gas flow energy interacting with pipeline material. We do not need to increase or lower the pressure or to disable the flow – normal operating parameters of oil or gas flow energy is already enough to register Phonon Emission from the defective areas of material crystal lattice.
Therefore, we are able to install our Phonon Emission Transducers on a distance up to 1km between each set where normally the maximum distance using conventional NDT methods would be only 100-150 meters. This allows us to perform long-distance, fast and precise diagnostics with high accuracy of defect localization.
Our state-of-the-art patented Phonon Diagnostics software allows performing real-time diagnostics and visualizing actual 3D model of examined object marked with exact locations, sizes, types and severity of all identified defects.
Non Destructive Testing
Phonon Inspection Technique is based on real-time diagnostics of physics process which goes in material and structure of facilities
The result of interaction of energy and material are various physical processes taking place in the material: stress concentration, deformation, corrosion, fatigue damage, destruction's
Phonon Inspection Technique, is a cutting-edge technique in the NDT market. Utilizing Phonon Inspection Technique, enables real-time inspection for pipelines, tanks and vessels, heat exchanger, offshore platforms legs and its equipment, and risers, etc., without interference with the operating process. When implementing the PDT, all metal loss, leaks and/or cracks can be detected in real-time
