Krautkrämer SNUP-LO

Longitudinal SAW Pipe Weld Inspection


BHGE’s Krautkrämer SNUP-LO system is designed for automated ultrasonic inspection of the weld seam and Heat Affected Zone (HAZ) on Linear Submerged Arc Welded (LSAW) pipes meeting the needs of API, DNV and other oil and gas transmission pipeline standards. 

SNUP-LO systems are the industry standard for high throughput inspection of both conventional carbon steel and CLAD pipe constructions. These systems are built with BHGE’s industry leading Phased Array technology or optionally with conventional ultrasonic methods to assess weld quality for process control prior to expansion and hydrostatic testing as well as for the final quality test.  

Future proof with GE’s matrix array capable USIP|xx instrumentation - the fastest ultrasonic instrument currently on the market.  Throughput speed up to 30 m/min (98 ft/min).  Sturdy, high stiffness steel construction to minimize factory vibration impact on ultrasonic performance.
