Baseline Mapping Of Discontinuities Through Nondestructive Testing.
MetadataShow full item record
Manufacturers in the compressor industry have experienced an increasing interest by their customers to be able to compare the as manufactured condition of critical components to their subsequent condition over time in service. Through the use of nondestructive testing, combined with baseline mapping of benchmark indications, this can be accomplished on specific components under controlled conditions. The purpose of this presentation is to discuss the following areas under which baseline mapping can be successfully accomplished. • Nondestructive Testing (NDT) • Liquid Penetrant • Magnetic Particle • Ultrasonic • Radiography • Visual • Baseline Mapping • Common Mapping Methods • Types of Maps • Mapping Variables • Mapping Requirements • Benefits Vs Cost
