ABOUT THIS EPISODE

In this fourth episode of our Asset Integrity Management (AIM) series, Mr. Dominic Alton, discusses the topic of Acoustic Emission Testing (AT) with Mr. Hermann Schubert, Head of Digital and Continuous Inspection, Division Industry Service, at TÜV SÜD. Through this episode, Mr. Schubert, introduces Acoustic Emission and explains how it is used in smart inspections and industrial asset health monitoring.

QUOTES

  1. “Acoustic Emission Testing´s allure lies in its ability to capture the dynamics of materials in real time without disturbing ongoing operations. Imagine observing the heartbeat of industrial assets, like pressure pipping and pressure vessels, detecting deterioration changes before they escalate and become a catastrophic failure.”
  2. “The increasing relevance of Acoustic Emission Testing is rooted in its unique capabilities to offer more safety to industrial installations. Traditional NDT methods often rely on periodic assessments, which might miss subtle changes in material behaviour. AT on the other hand, offers continuous monitoring, providing real-time insights into structural integrity. This shift from reactive to proactive maintenance is invaluable in preventing failures and optimizing asset performance.”
  3. “AT is commonly applied to a diverse array of critical infrastructure within the chemical and petrochemical industry, including pressure vessels, reactors, columns, and storage tanks. These assets undergo acoustic emission testing due to their vulnerability to stress-induced anomalies, including corrosion, material fatigue, and structural degradation.”
