Electro Magnetic Induction

Electromagnetic inspection (also known as electromagnetic induction) has been proven to be the most efficient and effective method for detecting defects that can shorten the life of drill pipe.


EMI is capable of detecting a much wider range of defects than other testing methods – including fatigue cracks, corrosion, pits, cuts, washouts and more. This advanced technology utilizes a portable device that can be used on-site and automatically scans the entire length of the pipe for defects.

By investing in an inspection and maintenance program that utilizes EMI, you can avoid failure of your drill string – which can result in costly downtime or even the loss of an entire well.

Main Advantages:

  • Portable equipment can be utilized on-site
  • Faster than other methods – saving both time and money
  • Detects many more types of defects than most other testing methods
