UTComp’s proprietary UltraAnalytix™ inspection system ensures the safe performance and maximum lifespan of fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) and other composite industrial assets, saving clients millions of dollars in downtime and unnecessary replacement costs.
No longer is it necessary to cut into tanks, pipes and other equipment to evaluate their strength and condition – further weakening structural integrity – or to shut down operations and enter confined spaces only to perform highly subjective visual inspections.
Our comprehensive reporting documents asset changes over time for proactive service-life forecasting that supports a robust Asset Management System and Process Safety Management Planning.
You get the right information at the right time to make the right evidence-based decisions - based on a solid foundation of engineering excellence and composite subject matter expertise. That's the UltraAnalytix™ Advantage.
UTComp CEO Jo Anne Watton presented "Your Aging FRP Assets: Myths & Facts" Nov. 13 at the Managing Aging Plants USA Conference in Houston, Texas. The presentation covered: What is FRP? Damage Mechanisms and Failure Modes Fitness for Service Evaluation Non-intrusive Method … [Read More...]
“For Cargill the ultrasonic inspection is a proven technique that is used worldwide. In the factories in Sas van Gent and Bergen op Zoom over one hundred plastic tanks are successfully inspected.”(Translated from Dutch to English)
“In an industry that struggles to find a way to reliably test the condition of FRP equipment, UTComp brings credibility and integrity to lifecycle management for anything made of FRP.”
"The innovative signal analysis software developed by UTComp provides thorough information about the thickness, strength, defects and corrosion barrier of FRP pipes."
“The development of ultrasound inspection methods to inspect FRP has allowed our company to monitor equipment degradation with time and make long-term plans for repair and replacement.”
“UTComp System has developed a repeatable and reproducible non-destructive and non-intrusive ultrasonic method to inspect the fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composite structures.”
"The signal analysis conducted by UTComp provides unique defect detection and sensitivity for a range of structural thicknesses, with advantages of single side access. I would highly recommend the UTComp system to industry users."
UltraAnalytix™ inspection delivers an average 10x return on investment, ensuring you get the most value from your composite assets without sacrificing safety.
Two recent case studies at pulp and paper mills show how asset relining was safely postponed after evaluation with UTComp’s UltraAnalytix™ system.
