Hydrogen Induced Cracks (HIC)

Dear Ramasubramanian,

I worked for Suadi Aramco and inspected pipes & elbobws for HIC related problems. We don't have control on HIC. If you find HIC, then monitor it periodically. Since it is related to inter granular craking, you have to monitor it periodically for the time period ranging from 6 months to 2 years depends up on the rate of HIC propagation. First you schedule your 2nd inspection after 6 months and find out the rate of propagation.

If the rate of propagation is less than 14mils per year in depth, then yoy can schedule your next inspection after 2 years. If the rate of propagation is more, you can reinspect it after some time period, depends up on the rate of propagation.

When the depth of HIC reaches the minimum required design thickness criteria described by ANSI, you can replace that partivcular spool.

nresolved asset integrity problem in the industry. Current methods for measuring wall thickness with liftoff, without removing insulation, all have severe limitations. Eddyfi introduces Lyft — a reinvented, high-performance pulsed eddy current (PEC) solution. The patent- pending system features a state-of-the-art portable instrument, real- time C-scan imaging, fast data acquisition with grid-mapping and dynamic scanning modes, and flexibility with long cables. It can also scan through thick metal and insulation, as well as aluminum, stainless steel, and galvanized steel weather jackets. Who else but Eddyfi to reinvent an eddy current technique and redefine CUI programs. Got Lyft?
