co2 Pitting 13 Chrome

I am trying to find out if anyone has had much experience with find CO2 pitting on 13 chrome material in full lengths of pipe and the method used to detect that pitting. I have about 16000 feet of pipe to look at with minor pitting .017" to .060" and I am having trouble with my signal to noise ratio just wondering if anyone out there knows or can help with this situation?

Re: co2 Pitting 13 Chrome
Ed,

Have you considered using LASER NDT to inspect the piping? The Laser-Optic Tube Inspection (LOTIS) process can reliably detect and quantify pitting with depths as shallow as +/-0.002" and pit diameters as small as 0.005". Currently there are laser probes built which can inspect piping up to 5.4" ID. Not sure what size your piping is?

For more information you might want to take a look at our web-site which can be found at http://www.qi2.com/field/fsddef.htm

If you have any further questions please contact me at the numbers listed below.

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?
