pipe surface crack

craack are found in pipes during sand blasting.What should be the cause of this cracking.Please note these pipes are carbon steel pipes.
And what should be the best method to detect those cracks.

you have already detected the cracks. visually. are you sure its cracks?

mpi would be quickest and cheapest next solution, the inspector would be able to give you more advice.

I partially concurr with ANJAFO. Magnetic particle inspection [MT, MPI] would be the fastest way to verify surface-breaking defects in ferritic [magnetic] material.

However, Visible dye liquid penetrant [PT, LPI, is the best method for evaluation of visible [possible] cracks. If the defect is verified, you can grind into the defect and reapply developer to visualize the defect. You keep grinding off a little and redeveloping to slowly 'gently' explore the defect. This exploration allows you to find the depth of the crack, determine both ends of the crack, and get a 'feeling' if the defect was indeed a crack, or a forging/rolling lap, or was a bad weld seam.
