Electromagnetic Testing of Pipelines

Electromagnetic testing provides the best condition assessment data for large diameter metallic and concrete pressure pipelines.

Electromagnetic Testing (ET) is a form of nondestructive testing (NDT) for pipelines that uses the process of inducing electric currents / magnetic fields either inside or on the surface of a pipeline to measure an electromagnetic response. By creating these fields, defects inside the wall of the pipeline can be measured by analyzing specific electromagnetic signatures produced.
