THE Applus+ SOLUTION
Applus+ has developed a systematic approach to magnetic flux leakage, ensuring inspections are conducted using state-of-the-art technologies and reporting the findings with the requisite level of detail to be able to assess a tank’s suitability for continued operation.
With the breadth of equipment and reporting software available to Applus+ personnel, clients benefit from having readings obtained by the system in a real-time C-Scan presentation. Through methodical threshold placement, Applus+ can help its clients to focus on the worst-affected areas instead of applying a blanket prove-up approach, thereby reducing overall downtime.
Taking magnetic flux leakage opportunities and coupling the efforts with a well-designed API 653 programme, clients may be able to assess tanks in their entirety, satisfying jurisdiction requirements and minimising potential production upsets.
