  • Non-destructive testing (NDT) equipment like ultrasonic and radiographic testing devices
  • Corrosion monitoring devices
  • Pressure and temperature gauges

While these tools have served the industry well, they come with their own set of challenges. These include high costs, time-consuming processes, and the potential for human error.
