Manufacturing vs. in-service defects

I'm currently looking into the ability of the various NDT's to distinguish between manufacturing defects (unchanged since the start but recently discovered due to improvements in NDT technology) and in-service defects of piping components primarily constructed of carbon steel to ASME SA106 Grade B, plus supplementals SA530 & SA655.
I realize this is a fairly general question but any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

Hello;

I spent a few years working on this very issue for the oil and gas industry. Feel free to contact me directly for more information.

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?
