Description

This paper describes the application of a SQUID susceptometer in nondestructive evaluation of steel pipes used in oil refineries. Commonly used methods, such as ultrasound and eddy current techniques [1], normally need a very small liftoff distance between the pipe wall and the sensor, which would require removal of the thermal insulation protecting the pipe, thus increasing the costs related to the inspection.

Measurements of Surface-Breaking Flaws in Steel Pipes Using a SQUID Susceptometer in an Unshielded Environment

This paper describes the application of a SQUID susceptometer in nondestructive evaluation of steel pipes used in oil refineries.
