Automated ultrasonic coil strip testing
Krautkrämer BPE ultrasonic strip test system is used to inspect coil material prior to forming of Spiral Submerged Arc Welded (SAW) or Electrical Resistance Welded (ERW) pipes. The Krautkrämer BPE is available as a stand-alone test system or can be integrated into the structure of Krautkrämer SNUP-SP spiral weld inspection system.
- Available in static or oscillating configurations
- Optional weld bevel inspection prior to welding process
- In-line integration into production process
- 100% in-process testing for laminations and inclusions in steel strips prior to forming
- No dimensional or wall thickness limitations
- High test speeds to match weld line throughput
