Guided Wave Analysis LLC
The main purpose of establishing Guided Wave Analysis LLC is to spread MsS technology worldwide through training,
and consulting with clients in order to ensure proper use the MsS technology. The technology incorporated in the MsS System was developed by Southwest
Research Institute® (SwRI®), a Texas nonprofit corporation.
The MsS System was commercialized primarily for inspecting and monitoring pipeline. It is used to generate a non-dispersive guided wave
for long-range ultrasonic inspection and monitoring through rapid surveying of pipes to detect internal and external corrosion.
The application areas of the MsS system are to inspect and monitor:
- Piping systems in oil, gas, and petrochemical facilities
- Boiler tube, heat exchanger tube
- Anchor rod, bridge cable
- Plate-like structure, stub angle of power transmission line tower
GWA sells MsS Systems to NDT service companies, research institutes, and universities and supports these clients with consultation, data analysis,
supply of accessories, personnel training, and on-site training and demonstration. The experience and knowledge obtained from client
support are used for upgrading MsS technology through research and development at the Sensor Systems and NDE Department in SwRI®.
