ACFM®: Sizing The Defect

The method for sizing a defect for length and depth using the ACFM® technique is demonstrated with standard manual probes using the AMIGO™ system. Topics covered include: Marking up the defect location, selecting the correct data to enter into the sizing algorithms and recording of the resultant defect.

ACFM®: Scanning Through Coatings

The capability of the ACFM® technique to inspect through paint and other coatings is examined in this short video.

ACFM®: Scan Speed

In this video the ability of ACFM® to tolerate different scan speeds and the benefit of the butterfly plot are demonstrated. This video also presents how the system is tolerant to relatively poor probe orientation, lift off and other common effects due to rough welds or difficult deployment constraints such as with a diver.

ACFM®: Real Life Inspection of coated tubular joint

This footage shows the ACFM® inspection of a coated tubular joint, commonly found subsea, demonstrating how a remote probe operator scans along the weld toe; whilst the trained inspector records and analyses the data in real time.

ACFM®: Real Weld Inspection Example

Here you will see how an ACFM® probe actually works to identify surface breaking cracks in a real weld sample. The output signals from the probe are examined, along with how they are displayed in the software, showing how a defect signal is represented.

ACFM®: Reporting

The automated reporting functions of the ACFM® ASSIST™ software are seen in this demonstration, highlighting the ease with which an operator can produce an audit-ready defect report for a customer.
