31 RMS2 – Technical Specification The RMS2 unit technical performance is illustrated on the following sample reportsThe smallest defect, (2 mm diameter x 5 mm deep) was consistently detected using a 2 mm x 2 mm scanning resolution on a 35 mm thick plate when using a 5 MHz transducer with a 50 mm focal length.
32 RMS2 – Technical Specification The machined slots are from 1 mm loss to 18 mm loss and the holes are of varying diameters but the same 5 mm depth.
33 RMS2 – Technical Specification Typical speeds for different resolutions are:300 mm per second scanning at1 mm x 1 mm resolution730 mm per second scanning at2 mm x 2 mm resolutionAmplitude based analysis is able to define 0.004” loss (0.1 mm)The 3D reporting feature ensures hydrogen blistering and similar type defects can be readily identified rather than just assumed as is the case with just 2D C-scan imaging.
34 Typical applications of the RMS2 RMS2 – ApplicationsTypical applications of the RMS2Corrosion mapping of:Above and below ground storage tank floors, shells and roofsPressure vessels including identification of hydrogen blisteringProcess pipe workOffshore loading /unloading jetty lines once the unit has been applied by rope access crewShips hulls and similar marine vesselsFracture detection in pressure vessels including de-lamination checks
35 USER BENEFITS - STORAGE TANKS RMS2 – ApplicationsUSER BENEFITS - STORAGE TANKSAn RMS2 inspection of a tank shell or roof provides a detailed C scan report and improved coverage of the area targeted for inspection.Eliminating the need to use scaffolding or rope access to perform manual UT thickness gauging inspectionMaximise the ability to detect corrosion by taking 600 mm wide scan from bottom to topPermanent hard and soft copy record of the results which can be retrieved at any future date.In this photo – the RMS2 system is shown on an oil tanker hull. The system is able (in most cases) to do a complete hull pass in a single scan (around the bottom of the ship).Completely water-proof and explosion-proof designs can be produced for use while the ship is underway.
36 RMS2 – ApplicationsUSER BENEFITS - STORAGE TANKSRapid data collection and real time analysis of the inspection.Computer generated report in lieu of totally manual reports.Reduced safety risks by minimising the use of scaffolding, rope access and tank roof walk boards.In this photo – the RMS2 system is shown on an oil tanker hull. The system is able (in most cases) to do a complete hull pass in a single scan (around the bottom of the ship).Completely water-proof and explosion-proof designs can be produced for use while the ship is underway.
