The goals of Magnetic Rope Testing (MRT) Examination in the oil and gas industry are:
- improve safety offshore activities
- prevent disasters
- vessel utilization improvement with planning of wire changes
Wire Rope Inspection Services in the oil and gas industry
with the use of LRM®XXI Diagnostic System allows to get information about the technical condition of wire rope in full cross section and in full available length of wire rope
in the fastest way.
Single broken wire on 96mm non-rotating wire rope
is the evaluation of technical condition of tested wire rope
according to interpretation of collected results
With regular periodic wire rope inspection
combined with data utilization of crane
the it is possible to estimate the remaining lifetime of crane wires.
The best result of evaluation of technical condition
of tested wires comes from all available NDT methods – it is combination of:
- MRT method with the use of LRM®XXI Diagnostic System,
- all information collected from visual inspection,
- data of crane utilization,
- information from previous MRT Examinations.
Due to cooperation with Laboratory LRM-NDE
with success offshore companies has implemented inspections of cranes wire ropes
with the use of LRM®XXI Diagnostic System
according to MRT Examination procedure and international standards for offshore fleet
In reasonable notice can be predicted and scheduled necessary activities in crane maintenance
, it allows to increase operation safety and fleet availability during project.
Long-term cooperation with offshore companies has allowed Laboratory LRM-NDE
to achieve the knowledge
and necessary competence
to design wire rope diagnostic system equipment that can meet the harsh environmental conditions at sea.
The LRM® Measuring Heads do not include any electronic component inside
, that means that the LRM® Measuring Heads
are not expose to waterlogging
. This facts makes the MRT device reliable
. All of the components of LRM®XXI Diagnostic System
have minimum IP67 protection level
LRM®XXI Diagnostic System is designed, constructed and manufactured to work in harsh environmental conditions
LRM®XXI Diagnostic System is used for the MRT Examination of ROV Umbilical Armor as well.
