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.

ISAFE3 Intrinsically Safe Sensor System

ISAFE3 intrinsically safe sensor system of Vallen Systeme is especially targeted at the petrochemica
...
l - as well as oil and gas transportation industry. The sensor system is designed for permanent monitoring or periodic inspection tasks. Sensors are available for different AE-frequency ranges optimized for corrosion and fatigue crack detection and other applications. The ISAFE 3 sensor system consists of an AE-sensor (model ISAS3) certified according to ATEX/IEC for installation in zone 0, gas group IIC, IP68, 20 to +60 °C, and a signal isolator (model SISO3) certified for installation in zone 2. An ISAS3 sensor can be mounted in atmosphere or submerged, e.g. in water or crude oil. It is supported by mounting tools for temporary (magnets) or permanent (welded) installation. ISAFE3 supports automatic sensor coupling test and can be used with any AE signal processor supporting 28V supply at 90 mA peak, e.g. Vallen Systeme ASIP-2/A.
