Coating Inspection of buried pipeline

Dear friends,

Myself Jayesh working as Inspection engineer with TPI and we have a enquiry regarding inspection of underground buried pipeline.

My Client are in process of exploring some NDT technique/Coating inspection technique which can be utilized for underground pipelines.They have crude line 42" dia which runs underground for more than 10 to 15km which is externally coated by wrapping coating. Also sea water lines which is both internally and externally coated.

Can you please suggest me how to proceed with inspection and what NDT techniques to be implimented.

Regards
Jayesh Vanza

Re: Coating Inspection of buried pipeline
Check out the new EMAT ILI tools that are available. They are showing a lot of promise in assessing the coating condition, especially the older Coal Tar / Bitumen wrap type coatings.

FMC/TFM

Next generation for Phased Array UT is here now with FMC/TFM! Have higher resolution imaging, impr
...
oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field
