TCR ATSCO in Kuwait wins a Stress Analysis project from KOC

TCR ATSCO based in Kuwait have won a project of stress analysis of a main header line. The entire line was previously buried under ground but it has been now dug and exposed. KOC, the client was experiencing some leakage problems due to gasket leaks which they presumed was due to vibrations originating after exposing the line. KOC removed soil to about 3 meters below the line. The line was designed as per the underground operations and now since the line is exposed to up to 3 meters from the bottom, client is facing vibration problems and hence the gasket leaks. The line also has insufficient supports to hold the operating pressures. KOC has asked TCR ATSCO in Kuwait to conduct stress analysis, identify stress and load areas and to recommend and propose support type and locations. TCR ATSCO will be doing the piping stress analysis as UG or AG line with modelling of nodes on CEASAR II for stress analysis. Node is one piping element say, flange, pipe, valve etc. For more details on Stre…

Helium Leak Testing by TCR Arabia in Saudi Arabia

Leak Testing is a form of non-destructive testing used for detection and location of leaks and for the measurement of leakage in either pressurized or evacuated Vessel / Heat Exchanger.Leak for various reasons is a undesirable feature in a component or systems. Still leaks do occur in practice. Hence ,it is essential that leaks are effectively detected and remedial measures to plug the leaks are taken well in advance.There are various measures of leak testing. Leak Test methods such as Ultrasonic, Bubble, Air Soap Solution etc have sensitivity upto 10 ( - 3 ) std cc / sec range. Helium Leak Testing method has many advantages in terms of sensitivity and reliabilty.When leak test is carried out, it is necessary to remember that leak rate measured plays a important role.Helium Leak Detector detects leak of the order of 10 ( - 6 ) std cc / sec or better, depending on test method used to detect the leak.Helium is used as a tracer gas for the following reasons:- Helium gas is very rare in a…
