Hybrid Acoustic Technology System (HATs)
Hybrid Acoustic Technology System (HATs) Inspection Coverage
Maximum 1.5 kilometers length end to end inspection per run for piping, pipeline or tubulars
Maximum 200 meters one end inspection per run for piping, pipeline or tubulars
Transducer require direct contact with parent metal. Portion of insulation/coating needs to be removed to install the transducer.
The accuracy of defect location depends on the accessibility of the object and accuracy of the as built drawings.

Benefits of Hybrid Acoustic Technology System (HATs)
HOW HYBRID ACOUSTIC TECHNOLOGY CAN BENEFIT CLIENTS IN THEIR MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR PROGRAM?
WITHIN A SHORT DURATION, HAT IS ABLE TO GENERATE VALUABLE DATA TO MAKE KEY INVESTMENT DECISION, REFINEMENT OF MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR WORKS AND OPTIMIZING SHUTDOWN WINDOW
HATs able to perform inspection :-
Without shutdown ( Maintaining operating parameters during inspection )
Without modification or special assembly
With less inspection and resources at site. In most environmental conditions ( Minimal dependence to weather or ambient noise )
1st Level Quantitative data for Asset Life Study (ALS) assessment
Technical assessment and remaining life calculation according to specific codes and standards e.g ASME, ISO, ASTM, API and etc.
Recommendation for maintenance and future operation
☼HATs is operable on wide temperature range (-40 degrees C to 500 degrees C depending on wave guide capability).
☼HATs provides real time data acquisition which can be utilized for assessment up to Fitness for Service (FFS).
☼HATs requires minimal modification to the diagnosed candidate and operation parameters are maintained during monitoring/data gathering.
☼HATs is not affected by variable diameter, fittings and flanges, limited accessibility and can be applied in most climatic conditions.
☼HATs allow screening or diagnostic of metallic objects.
☼HATs reduce the volume and labour intensity of monitoring, repair and tests
☼HATs simplify the preparation of Standards and Procedures for maintenance program.
☼HATs is cost effective in the context of total plant inspection, maintenance and repair cost.
☼HATs monitoring/data gathering can be conducted without plant shutdown or production interruption.

Fundamentals of Hybrid Acoustic Technology System (HATs)
Hybrid Acoustic Technology System (HATs) is an advanced diagnostic and assessment technique to study reliability of a specific object or asset.
It is a combination of advanced acoustic emission detection, complementary with other NDT method and advanced analysis & assessment technique to offer a comprehensive Asset Life Study (ALS).
Advanced Acoustic Detection Technique
Advanced Analysis and Assessment Technique
Comprehensive Report For Asset Life Studdy (ALS)
HATs employ acoustic measurement through capturing released energy from deforming defects. The energy originates from sudden movement in stressed materials itself, which emits out through the structure and excites highly sensitive sensors.
HATs provides real time-data on diagnosed objects irrespective of the state of usage. It is applied ideally to assets that are in operation where various damage mechanisms are present and naturally occurring.
HATs capability is confined to detection of active defects that are formed and increase in natural operating environment with the presence of various damage mechanism.
