GERMAN TOOLS INSPECTION LTD provided non-destructive testing of the PDM elements and drill collar. The Customer is well aware that timely non-destructive testing in operating conditions is the key to safe and trouble-free work.

Inspection was done in the following sequence:

  Preparation for control.

  Visual inspection is an integral initial process before any method.

  Magnetization of the part using the fluorescent magnetic particle method to identify defects.

 

 

  After the inspection, we found defects such as microcracks in places around the holes.

In conclusion, we provided the Customer a technical act with the abovementioned defects and recommended decommissioning the defective parts.
