Gantry, rail system supports ultrasonic tester for oil, gas pipe testing market

May 12, 2009

Haven Mfg. Corp. has designed a gantry and rail system that supports a full-body phased-array ultrasonic tester for the oil and gas pipe testing market.

The system's capacity is 2.52 to 21.06 in. in diameter and up to 49.21 ft. long. A walking beam transfer device positions the pipe into the test station while simultaneously removing a tested pipe. In the testing station, the pipe is rotated at a controlled RPM to match the specified linear speed of the ultrasonic tester carriage. Multiple servo drives control the synchronization of the test cycle.
