3DSL NDT Software

Fast, Accurate Fitness for Service Calculations on a Variety of Infrastructure

3DSL Software


The 3DSL NDT Software Suite is a suite of software tools designed to enable fast, accurate fitness for service calculations on a variety of infrastructure. The software, designed to work with the 3DSL imaging systems and the 3D Toolbox damage assessment system, enables acquisition of a 3D data, analysis of the data to determine infrastructure damage, and assessment of the impact of the damage using industry standard recommendations such as ASME B31G and API 579.

Product Benefits

Generate fitness-for-service test reports in minutes with the 3DSL NDT software suite. The end-to-end software solution includes: 3D image capture, defect analysis, and fitness-for-service (FFS) calculations and reports. The FFS calculations and reports are compliant with ASME B31G, CSA Z662, ASME B31.4, ASME B3.18 and API 579. The software can also be used with ultrasound data, pit gage data, or data collected from other 3D imaging systems. Next time you need an FFS report, think 3DSL NDT.
