Subsea NDT Technologies

ART – Acoustic Resonance Technology

The advantages of acoustic resonance technology (ART) have long been recognised in the subsea inspection marketplace. The technology—with its coating penetration and accuracy capabilities for through-wall inspection of pressure holding equipment—is well suited to detect mediums. TSC Subsea’s ART is deployed remotely via our ARTEMIS™ system to provide unique external inspection of subsea assets, including rigid and flexible pipelines, flowlines and risers.

ACFM – Alternating Current Field Measurement

For 30 years, alternating current field measurement (ACFM) electromagnetic inspection technology has been the method of choice for detecting and sizing subsea surface-breaking cracks. Recognized and approved by many certification bodies, including DNV, ABS and Lloyds, the technique has been used successfully to supersede traditional non-computerized and more user-dependent methods, such as magnetic particle inspection (MPI).

PEC – Pulsed Eddy Current

Corrosion under insulation is possibly the greatest unresolved asset integrity problem in the industry. Adding a subsea environment to that increases the challenge ten-fold. Current methods for measuring wall thickness over insulation (liftoff) without removing it all have severe limitations. TSC Subsea’s exclusive ROV-deployed subsea Eddyfi Lyft® and high-resolution array probes provide a high-performance solution that reinvents pulsed eddy current (PEC).

SPA – Subsea Phased Array

Collaborating closely with its business associates, Eddyfi Technologies, TSC Subsea has successfully introduced the numerous advantages of Phased Array technology to the realm of subsea inspection. The innovative Subsea Phased Array (SPA™) system seamlessly integrates traditional PAUT and ToFD techniques while also incorporating advanced applications utilizing the latest technological advancements in TFM (Total Focusing Method).
