Description

The demand for information on the status of pipelines still rises. Stringent environmental protection laws, rising insurance costs and rising lifetime of existing pipelines ask for more detailed and reliable inspection results [1,2]. An ultrasonic inspection system is developed for the assessment of corrosion in fluid filled pipelines. In this paper an overview of the measurement system is given. Special attention is paid to the measurement head and the data-acquisition unit. Application of the system for the assessment of internal corrosion damage is illustrated.
