Unfired pressure vessels. Acoustic emission for pressure vessels

Status : Current   Published : January 2019



This document is intended for the application of AT on metallic pressure equipment during controlled loading. Therefore the overall aims of this document are: - to detect, locate and grade areas with evolving imperfections; - to provide the manufacturer the possibility to compare results of the first test with those of subsequent periodic inspections; - to determine the possibilities and limits of AE testing (AT) for pressure equipment; - to establish common basis for procedures to perform AT, taking into account the specific characteristics of the equipment under test; - to define the criteria, features and grades essential for evaluation of test results; - to suggest follow-ups to the test.
