Testing of internal pipe coating for blistering and potential blister areas

I am looking for suitable tests to find all existing and potential blister areas on the internal pipe coating of a 1,4m dia pipe at present in 400m lengths. The coating is 1,5mm thick.

Re: Testing of internal pipe coating for blistering and potential blister areas
Dear Gaven,

1. What is the wall thickness of the pipe?

2. Is there any wall loss on these pipe?

3. Were are you located?

4. We have an instrument that is capable of measuring the liner thickness
of pipe.


Regards,

Joe

Gavin,
Phoenix manufacture an accoustic emission device which will detect blisters in pipes and will give you the cross section area loss and the distance from the transmitter. Bends and Tees have no effect, pipe diameters from 10-500mm and lengths to 500m. You need access at one point. If this is of interest then please contact me

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?
