Description

Corrosion and pitting defects in pipework are major problems in the oil, chemical and other industries. These defects can occur at the outer or inner surface of the pipe and can lead to a serious loss of pipe wall thickness. As a high proportion of industrial pipelines are insulated, this means that even external corrosion cannot readily be detected without the removal of the insulation, which in most cases is prohibitively expensive.
