Chimney Ultrasonic thickness Gauging Inservice Inspection by Trinity NDTians

Ultrasonic thickness gauging(UTG) is one of the most reliable method of finding the wall thickness measurement of chimneys in process plants. Usually chimney walls are subjected to severe corrosion due to the passage of exhaust gases and other environmental factors. Presently there are large number of portable Ultrasonic thickness gauging equipment are available to a diversity of thickness gauging applications. Normally for this type of application accuracy of around + or - 0.1mm is practically advisable.

As the surfaces of the Chimneys are usually will be having thick scaling and unevenness, it may not be suitable to carryout direct Ultrasonic thickness gauging and may require to be grinded /polished with emery for better even surface to get consistent and reliable thickness measurement results before thickness measurement.Calibrated Ultrasonic thickness gauging shall be used for all the applications.
ASTM E797 - Procedure for Measuring Thickness by Manual Ultrasonic Pulse-Echo Contact Method can be used for this application. Ultrasonic thickness gauge shall be calibrated every time before use and after use with the master block provided by the Ultrasonic equipment supplier.

Probes are available for room temperature and elevated (high) temperature application similar measuring the wall thickness of boiler pipes and tubes. Its a mandatory requirement by the statutory bodies to ensure that the pressure vessels, boilers and other critical assemblies needs in-service inspection to find the extent of corrosion.

The personnel qualified and certified to ASNT SNT TC 1A Level I, II requirements can be suitable to perform this NDT inspection technique (Ultrasonic thickness gauging).
