CBI’s project involves construction of two (2) units of propylene spherical tanks measuring 25m dia. each and two (2) units mixed C4 spherical tanks measuring 24m dia. each.  NDT-PHILS will perform Ultrasonic Test, Magnetic Particle Inspection, and the application of advance NDT technique of Time of Flight Diffraction (TOFD) and Phased Array Ultrasonic Test (PAUT) which will be applied in lieu of the conventional Radiography Test (RT).

TOFD/PAUT

This is an advance NDT technique and application which in recent years had been adopted and utilized by inspection companies, contractors, and project owners in developed countries as a tool for quality control on weld works.  Unlike the conventional RT, TOFD/PAUT is radioactive free and is absolutely safe for the workers and personnel in a facility. TOFD/PAUT also provides better detection of planar defects and its scanning data gives details of the length, depth, and height of weld imperfection, which is more detailed than RT which can only provide the length of weld imperfection.

Contract Signing and Project Pre-Implementation Activities

The Subcontract Agreement by and between CBI and NDT-PHILS is in the final closing stage and its signing is set for 2nd week of September 2013.  Pre-implementation project activities had likewise commenced with the holding of project site visit, pre-qualification and mock up test. Mobilization and commencement of project works are scheduled in the 4th week of September 2013.

A Milestone Project

The project is considered a milestone in the aspect of industrial inspection.  The application of TOFD/PAUT in the project will be the first of its kind in the Philippines and NDT-PHILS once again gained success in its advocacy to promote and pioneer in the application of advance NDT techniques and methods not only in the Philippines but in the foreign market as well.
