ERW Pipe Weld Tracking Using Phased Array

How do welding pipes work?How do welding pipes work?ERW tubes and pipes are cold formed from a strip of steel (skelp) pulled through a series of forming horizontal and vertical rollers positioned to gradually form the flat strip in to a tube which is then allowed to pass through the welding process. In most mills, the position of the weld seam is the 12:00 oclock position (Top).In-Line EMAT Ultrasonic Weld Inspection for ERW(pipe) In-Line ERW Tube Inspection - Olympus IMS
