ARTIS-3 MODEL 5400


PORTABLE EMI SYSTEM
For Drill Pipe & Tubing (2-3/8” O.D thru 6-5/8” O.D.)

Inspection Capabilities Overview

ARTIS-3 MODEL 5400


Transverse Flaw Channels – 8
Localized Wall Loss Channels – 16
Full Length Wall Monitoring Channels – 1
Maximum total inspection channels – 25

The ARTIS-3 MODEL 5400 Portable EMI system is a 100% solid state Hall sensor system. The ARTIS-3
system is packed with the latest inspection technologies and features available, in an effort to detect more
defects than ever before. The ARTIS-3 sports an array of technological upgrades including new signal
processing methods and time-saving software functions.

The ARTIS-3 system provides a total of four (4) inspection charts of information displayed per joint. There
are eight (8) inspection shoes loaded with Hall sensor arrays providing more than 100% circumferential
coverage for both transverse flaws and small localized wall loss defects. Inspection shoes ride directly on
the surface of the pipe.

The ARTIS-3 also includes an array of eight (8) independently sensing non-contact, solid state Hall
sensors for larger, more gradual, smooth sided localized wall loss defects. 360° degree coverage is
provided for localized wall loss defects approximately the diameter of a quarter or larger with approximately
10% or more of the wall thickness removed.

All localized wall loss channels on the ARTIS-3 system can be reference calibrated and have a stable, flat
baseline.

** Localized wall loss defects, as we define them, are defects which are known to be undetectable by
induction search coils due to their low frequency flux leakage response. Research and testing has shown
that these defects are essentially missed and left undetected in the pipe when only induction search coils
are implemented for inspection.

The ARTIS-3 non-contact Hall sensors also provide a fourth inspection channel. Our “Full Length Wall”
monitoring feature is designed to detect more gradual, large area wall loss defects while monitoring and
displaying the thick-thin response of the body wall down the length of the pipe. As an example, these
defects could include gradual O.D. formation wear on drill pipe or rod wear in production tubing. Defect
detection is increased when a separate function is implemented and optimized for large area wall loss, due
to the way these types of defects influence the applied magnetic field.

** A single wall loss function which is used to detect both localized wall loss and large area wall loss
defects is much less effective since optimization can only be achieved for one defect type.

Computer System and Other Capabilities

The ARTIS-3 system is 100% computer operated. There are no buttons or knobs to press or turn during
typical pipe inspection operations.

Features Included on ARTIS-3 systems:


a) Systems can be run directly from the computer keyboard.
b) Inspection Report feature integrated in the main software.
c) Solid State Meter Technology for the AC VOLT Meter and DC COIL AMPS meter. These meters
do not require the typical periodic calibration like older analog meters.
d) Computer controls for all system functions such as buggy drive motion and mag coil adjust.
e) Simple, automatic reference calibration using a reference standard pipe.
f) Digital Master Gain controls which allow the operator to simultaneously turn up or down the
sensitivity of an entire inspection function.
g) Fast nominal inspection speed for increased production.
h) Integrated with Windows XP CD burning features for easy inspection result archiving.
i) Automatically produce inspection results in a file format which can be viewed using typical Windows
type programs (e.g. the inspection system software is not required to view your saved inspection
charts).
j) Can store the inspection data on your corporate network, USB memory stick, CD etc.
k) Other software may be installed for customer provided inspection report creation (such as with
WORD or EXCEL) or to use in conjunction with UT thickness gauge or UT shear wave software
(very handy for recording thickness measurement without writing or typing required).
l) Integrated software update feature.

Specialized ARTIS-3 system features / patented fearures:


1) OEM’s proprietary, second generation ON BOARD DIAGNOSTICS system is standard. This solid
state monitoring system continuously tests key system components. This includes critical power
supplies, magnetizing coil performance and more. All systems tests are fully automatic, requiring
no user intervention.
2) Our PATENTED AutoStop feature is included to assist with defect location for prove-up and
evaluation. No other method that can help the inspector locate a suspected defect faster than
OEM’s AutoStop feature. The system typically stops within inches of the defect site and indicates
where around the circumference the defect signal originated from.
3) Adjustable Signal Level Control “noise filters” are provided to remove low level signal indications on
the baseline of the inspection charts.
4) and much more5

Final Overview

The ARTIS-3 system outperforms any search coil based EMI unit, feature for feature. The ARTIS-3 is
unequalled in the pipe inspection industry.

The ARTIS-3 systems provide a much stronger magnetic field, for better I.D. defect detection, than typically
found with competing units.
