Automated inspection services company, Sonomatic has announced a strategic working partnership with TSC Inspection Systems, which is particularly recognised in the fields of NDT, robotics and fracture mechanics. The partnership will span across the region of South East Asia, extending from subsea projects to refineries, with an emphasis on high temperature work in Singapore.

Supported by a strong internal capability for the development of ultrasonic systems, software, scanners and associated equipment, Sonomatic has extensive knowledge of non-destructive testing, along with how it is applied in the integrity management process.

Its automated subsea ultrasonic inspection technology is designed and developed in-house via a closely-knit process. Moreover, the company’s high temperature inspection capability allows process equipment operators to perform inspections without the need to shutdown plants.

TSC Inspection Systems’ ACFM® is an electromagnetic inspection technique that is widely used across the oil and gas industry. The ACFM is routinely used for high temperature inspection in applications such as the inspection of hot pipework in petrochemical plants, ongoing monitoring of defect prone sites under lagging using permanently installed high temperature array probes, interpass inspection during welding is also possible removing the need for bead to cool and then be reheated.

TSC can build and design ACFM probes to inspect at temperatures of 500°C (930°F) or more, for long periods of time.

"This partnership brings together the strengths of TSC and Sonomatic to provide customers with a comprehensive and advanced NDT inspection solution. We look forward to working closely with Sonomatic in delivering high quality inspection services to customers in the South East Asia region" says Business Development Manager of TSC Inspection Systems Singapore, Nickson Khoo.
