Inspection of Process pipes into a guard pipe

Dear Sirs;

We have designed a piping system that include a guard pipe containing 4 process pipes (all pipes made of SS 316L) as you may see in the attached file.

Final client has asked if it would be possible to perform a corrosion /loss of thickness inspection of process pipes in some specific areas obtained from the stress analysis. Does anybody know any technique that allow this kind of inspection without cutting guard pipe?

In the attached file you may find dimensions and configuration of pipes

Thanks in advanced

Can you do RT thickness measurement at 2 directions (90 degree)? You can use outside diameters of the process pipes for reference comparator to determine the wall thicknesses.
Another option would be use IRIS for tube inspection.

mances of portable X-Ray sets. Despite having managed to halve the weight of similar portable X-Ray generators available on the market (while continuing to provide the same power output), the SITEX CPSERIES generators feature a shutter, a laser pointer, a beryllium window, an aluminum filter and two integrated diaphragms (customized sizes are available upon request). Without compromising the robustness and reliability for which ICM products are renowned, the small size and light weight of the SITEX CPSERIES will radically change the way that you perform your RT inspections. And you will see a positive impact in terms of both quality and return on investment (ROI).
