The VEDAQ-P™ is a stationary, computerized, multi-function EMI system for inspecting drill pipe up to 6 5/8" O.D. Transverse flaw detection and TRUEWALL™ (Hall effect) wall monitoring functions are standard on the VEDAQ-P™. The computerized electronics system, heavy-duty center section, pipe handling conveyors, and affordable price make the VEDAQ-P™ the best stationary drill pipe inspection system in the industry. The inspection results are displayed digitally in the software with individual channel colors for easy interpretation. The VEDAQ-P™ provides the operator with a very diversified, sophisticated, and operator-friendly inspection system. The VEDAQ-P™ is designed to meet most industry requirements set forth by API, DS-1, etc.

Inspection building (operator compartment)
The system is calibrated on a standard at the beginning the job. Hydraulic pipe arms load the pipe from the pipe racks onto conveyors. Hydraulic pinch rollers automatically open and shut onto the pipe for proper centering inside the coil. This can be done automatically or with manual switches in the operator compartment. Conveyors move the pipe through the center section, and the pipe enters the transverse flaw detection head and magnetic wall thickness monitoring system. The inspection data is displayed digitally in the software and can be saved to the computer for future viewing. After inspection, the pipe is automatically unloaded to the outgoing conveyors and the process is repeated. Optional demag system can be installed for more functions. This system operates with a high production rate, quality of inspection and excellent reliability.
