Description

Corrosion in pipework is a major problem, particularly in the oil, gas, chemical and petro-chemical industries. Since 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. There is therefore an urgent need for the development of a quick, reliable method for the detection of corrosion under insulation (CUI).
