Permanent Monitoring / Structural Health Monitoring (SHM): Vessels and Piping Systems


Vessels and Piping Systems

Acoustic Emission testing has proven extremely capable in detecting and locating active defects like cracks due to fatigue, corrosion, and operation outside of the design envelope. It is the only non-destructive testing method that can resolve individual source location with global sensor spacing. It is also useful to monitor local areas, so called hot spots, for activity or for post repair area monitoring to ensure no further defect growth. The high performance of the measurement system provides details about defects in real-time. The monitoring system runs autonomously gathering information 24/7. Operators, structural engineers and interested audiences can get information about critical events as they occur, ensuring a fast reaction upon changes in the carrying capacity of the monitored structure.

Acoustic emission systems can be expanded easily, enabling the operator to adjust the monitoring system to changing needs as the structure changes.
