Protect Vital Welds With Weld Seam Monitoring From Abfad Limited

24/7 Monitoring And Early Warning Indicator

Why do we need to monitor welds?

Fatigue is the weakening of a material caused by repeatedly applied loads. It is the progressive and localised structural damage that occurs when a material is subjected to repeated loading and unloading. If the loads are above a certain threshold, microscopic cracks will begin to form. Eventually a crack will reach a critical size, and the structure will fracture.

 

How does Abfad’s Weld Seam Monitoring System help?

Abfad’s Weld Seam Monitoring System monitors a structures vital welds and acts as an early warning indicator, allowing operators to investigate before a catastrophic failure of the structure occurs.

Any structure which suffers the potential for stress and fatigue will benefit from Weld Seam Monitoring. This could be wind turbines, bridges, pressure vessel external welds, and any structure that is subjected to cyclic loading.

The Weld Seam Monitoring Process

Any corrosion is removed with a bristle blaster.

The weld is visually inspected.

MPI is performed to initially check the weld for crack fractures.

A specialist coating is then applied to the weld in order to provide protection from further corrosion.

The Weld Seam Monitoring System is then applied, covering the weld ready for a vacuum to be pulled.

The system is finished off with special wrapping tapes that seal in the system and provide protection from the elements.

A vacuum is pulled once the completed system has been applied and the monitoring equipment is installed.

Various different monitoring instruments can be utilised with Abfad’s Weld Seam Monitoring System.
