Metalprove has successfully completed Non-Destructive Testing activities in the construction of the "Variante Spina di Pomezia" natural gas pipeline DN 200 DP 12 owned by SNAM Rete Gas.

Experimentally, semi-automatic ultrasounds (Phased Array + TOFD) were carried out to replace radiography in testing of 8-inch diameter welds.

The excellent results obtained can be used by the Customer to modify the current specification, in order to use SA-UT starting from thicknesses lower than the current limits (8 mm) and therefore guaranteeing higher safety conditions in SNAM construction sites, often located in urban areas with high population density.
