Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR THE NON-INTRUSIVE INSPECTION OF VESSELS
Abstract:
The present invention consists of a system and a method for the quick, complete and non-intrusive inspection of vessels, which does not involve the physical inspection of the vessel. According to the non-intrusive inspection method of the invention, the vessel is moved through two scanning frames, said movement being synchronised with the starting-up of two penetrating radiation generators and with the transmission of signals generated by detector arrays towards a sub-system for the acquisition, processing and display of data in order to form and display radiographic images taken from at least two different perspectives of the scanned vessel. The system comprises a mechanical support-type structure, a control centre, two scanning frames, two penetrating radiation sources, a vessel pulling sub-system, a vessel-stabilisation sub-system and a data-acquisition, -processing and -display sub-system.
