NDT INSPECTION DRAWINGS

A major UK pharmaceutical firm, required piping isometrics for NDT purposes of their main process plant, because of the size of the process unit (over 6000m2) and their limited staff, they asked us to scan the unit and from the scan data produce isometrics. The unit consisted of two buildings (each roughly 500m2), which both had minimum of 3 floors and a roofing area, which consisted of a further few levels of steel work walkways.

We went in with a three man team, two scanners and a total of 24 reference spheres; we scanned around the perimeter of each building, including any chillers and storage tanks, then made our way into scan the inside of the buildings. The client was pleased that we was
able to move quickly through the rooms, with minimal disruption to the everyday running of their plant.

The scan data was later registered together at a high accuracy, enabling the scan data to be taken and used for multiple applications including 3D Webshare, 3D BIM, 3D Steelwork, drainage floor plans, P&IDs and 3D pipework that would later be used to export the NDT (API570) isometrics.

The client was happy with the job we completed, they found the webshare, which we supplied for free an incredible tool; it has now enabled them to walk their site (even during production) safely and take accurate measurements.

Laser surveys offer a safer, more accurate option to obtain site  information,  Allowing our clients to take measurements whilst still in production.

PRE-pLANNING 

AlS will complete pre-planning in order to determine the most efficient and therefore, cost effective solution.

RISK & METHOD STATEMENTS 

ALS recognise that any form of site work on an operating site must be subject of both RAMS along with planning documents in order to expedite an efficient and safe survey.

3D Laser scan 

Recognised as the referred method for accurately capturing measured site data in using 3D laser scanning instruments. Traditional methods being time consuming  and subject to error.

Ounce ALS has been out on site with the 3D Laser Scanners we then process the scan using faro scene software.

AUTO PIPEWORK RECOGNITION 

ALS uses pipework recognition software to pick out the spherical shapes from the point cloud data this save valuable time modelling.

STEEL WORK EXTRAPOLATION 

ALS can provide steel work models this can aid clients in the situation where they need  feed a new line through the site. ALS offer clash detection services.

CLIENT BENEFITS

LASER SCANNING

ALS are proud to have established point cloud technologies, now recognised as the preferred method for accurately capturing measured site data in using 3D laser scanning instruments. Traditional methods being time consuming and subject to error,

3D MODELLING

The vast engineering experience from over 30 years working within process industries has resulted in ALS now leading in the production of ‘brown field’ technical process models. ALS recognised the importance of our skilled 3D laser surveyors site familiarity.

SMART P&IDS

Piping and instrumentation diagrams (P&IDs) are considered a fundamental requirement for companies operating a process operation. P&IDs play a significant role in the maintenance and modification of the process that it describes and should be maintained
