Volumetric PAUT Application & PoD in Compliance with ASME B31.3 on Stainless Steel Welds

IPEIA (Title)

Metalogic Inspection Services was approached by a client to work on providing an Inspection Solution for Austenitic Stainless Steel welds to:

  • avoid radiation safety issues “inherent” with industrial radiography,
  • overcome “Inspection Window” restrictions that slows production,
  • offer “Timely Inspection” to detect flaws at early stages of manufacturing, and
  • deliver close to “real time” feedback for continuous improvement in processes to correct  anomalies and provide cost savings in Austenitic Stainless Steel Manufacturing.


The greatest success was the attainment of project goals with full collaboration between all parties, i.e. Metalogic, Clients and Inspection Personnel. Detailed inspection procedures with acceptable PoD through comprehensive inspection configuration were developed and inspection personnel trained in line with agreed upon PDQs.
