Generation of Magnetic Fields in Oversized and Complex Geometries Using Flexible A.C. Cables

October 27, 2020

This interesting article by M. Sebastian, Technical Director at Sui Generis Inspection Consultants and M. Ross, Inspection Engineer at N-Sea Aberdeen titled ‘The Generation of Magnetic Fields in Oversized and Complex Geometries Using Flexible A.C. Cables’ (2020) looks at the use of A.C. electromagnetic cables on structural members that exceed operational limitations on diameter and complex geometry.

The piece analyses existing subsea methodologies and problem areas, viable alternative MPI techniques using different configurations of flexible cable, an exploration of best practice in MPI inspection and suggests new ways of inspection using electromagnetic flexible cables.

TVC are delighted that the ASAMS System 3, which is built at our factory now under an exclusive licence, is featured within the paper.
