With the new 3DSL Rhino, determining the maximum safe operating pressure takes minutes. Simply take the 3DSL Rhino Damage Assessment System to your work site for a quick and accurate Level 2 corrosion assessment.
Once the equipment is connected and powered up, input critical data such as: pipe diameter, pipe SMYS, MAOP, operator information, site information and system information into the default information settings. Next, verify the calibration by taking an image of the verification standard. You are now ready to aim the 3DSL Rhino at the corrosion area, trigger the image button, and analyze the 3D image.
Once the 3D image is acquired, analyze the image using the Pipeline Analysis Module, where you can select the grid size and interaction rules. Finally, using the Pipeline FFS module, analyze the river bottom profile to determine the remaining strength using either ASME B31G, RSTRENG – 0.85dL, or RSTRENG – Effective Area methods. All FFS data can be output into a pdf report and an Excel file. The entire process is intuitive, quick and accurate.
