Visual Inspection of Root Pass Weld Bead Inside a Welded Pipe

Serimax uses Xiris visual inspection and laser measurement technology in the orbital welding of offshore oil and gas pipes.


Root pass welding on offshore oil and gas pipes is performed in a harsh environment with extremely demanding quality requirements. Offshore pipe-laying contractors demand zero tolerance of welding defects because of enormous environmental liability. Recent years have seen an enormous increase in offshore pipeline complexity and welding quality requirements. Serimax North America LLC (Houston, TX) is a full service welding company providing fully integrated welding operations for land and sea based pipelines. Their Scanvision HD™ system provides weld traceability and quality control to guarantee pipeline weld integrity. Using advanced visual inspection and laser measurement technology from Xiris Automation Inc. (Burlington, ON), the Scanvision HD system is capable of measuring the profile and acquiring very high resolution images of the root pass weld bead inside a welded pipe. The camera and inspection solution was successfully implemented in the Scanvision HD system for use in multiple pipeline-production environments.
