SAW Pipe Weld Inspection

Ultrasonic SAW Pipe Inspection Solutions

Krautkrämer SNUP

Waygate Technologies’ Krautkrämer SNUP system is designed for automated ultrasonic inspection of the submerged-arc welded (SAW) seam. It is used for longitudinal or helical (spiral) weld seams.

SNUP systems are the industry standard for high throughput inspection of conventional carbon steel pipes and more complex constructions, such as CLAD pipes. These ultrasonic testing systems are built with our industry-leading technology, Phased Array or optionally conventional. The system assesses weld quality for process control prior to expansion and hydrostatic testing as well as for the final quality test. All major international standards are met, such as API, DNV, SHELL, IOGP.

We used to be GE Inspection Technologies, now we’re Waygate Technologies, a global leader in NDT solutions with more than 125 years of experience in ensuring quality, safety and productivity.
