On-Stream Inspection (OSI)
On-Stream Inspection (OSI) Fields of application
On-stream inspection (OSI) by means of radiographic testing, allows verification of the residual wall thickness. Erosion or corrosion spots can be determined by evaluation of digital image files or analog X-ray films.
This method can also be applied for the production of overview images (the so-called shadow images) for the detection of installations or add-ons in areas which are not visible.
The on-stream inspection is mainly applied in chemical installations and refineries.
We carry out the mobile on-stream inspection process with laboratory vehicles in your production and construction sites.
For this purpose, radiation sources (such as iridium 192 (IR192), selenium 75 (Se75)) as well as mobile X-ray systems are applied. This service is available in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands.
