Stress Corrosion Cracking

We have reported indications of SCC on gas manifold internal change of section. The external geometry is a 2" weldlet on a 6" main pipe. The internal surface is very roughly machined and we have recommended radiography to confirm the indications. Due to the activity on site at present this can't be done without delaying start up. The rough internal surface can be accessed through a 1" bore pipe 6" long, the external surface is accessible. Can anybody advise the best method to:

1. Confirm our findings for the client.
2. Size the cracking found.

Thanks for your advice.
Gary

Re: Stress Corrosion Cracking
Gary,

The ID Creeping Wave method may be an application for your inspection problem. Or using Focused Refracted Longitudinal Waves (or OD creeping Waves) like HALT maybe effective.

If you are not familar with these methods go to ndt.net publications sections and see the Advanced UT Flaw Sizing Handbook.

I conduct Advanced UT Detection and Sizing Training Courses on these methods.

Sincerely,

J. Mark Davis

Lyft™: Pulsed Eddy Current Reinvented

PEC Reinvented—CUI Programs Redefined Corrosion under insulation (CUI) is possibly the greatest u
...
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?
