Description

Pipelines are subjected to corrosion and require periodic inspection. These pipes are generally covered with an insulating material, that is contained within a metal jacket. The removal of the insulating material is costly, and can hazardous if asbestos is the material being removed. Because a large number of pipes need to be inspected, a cost effective technique for the characterization of corrosion under insulation is desirable.
