Phased Array

Cutting edge technology

Loenbro was one of the first companies to use phased array technologies in oilfields and refineries in Montana, North Dakota and Wyoming. We now provide clients across the nation with highly detailed digital images that can be transmitted almost instantly.

Phased array presents no radiation hazard, so construction crews can continue work on the site during inspections.

Phased array is appropriate for many projects:

  • Industrial facility and pipeline construction
  • Fabrication and pre-fabrication
  • Plant maintenance
  • Refinery turnarounds

HDPE Phased Array

More industries are using HDPE pipe instead of steel, steel alloys, cast iron and concrete. HDPE pipe is more resistant to corrosion and erosion and less expensive to install because it is lighter and more flexible.

But HDPE pipe is not free of flaws, such as these:

  • lack of fusion at the pipe joint
  • dust contamination of joints
  • planar flaws

Loenbro’s certified inspectors ensure the integrity of the fusion joints in using phased array ultrasonic testing. After extensive research, we have developed procedures for HDPE phased array inspection that our technicians employ. Low-frequency phased array probes provide an auditable and efficient way of determining pipe quality. Our trained inspectors deliver results you can rely on.

We know integrity.

Let us ensure the integrity of your HDPE pipe.

Phased Array vs. Xray

Our experienced technicians use phased array for pipelineindustrial constructionfabrication and pre-fabrication, and refinery turnarounds and maintenance. These experts turn to phased array because it provides higher quality images than traditional radiography. And because there is no radiation hazard with phased array, surrounding construction crews and activities can continue to be performed as we work with you.

This means you get a more accurate inspection completed, and get back to work faster, saving you time and money.
