Corrosion Detection

A corrosion monitoring program provides comprehensive monitoring of all critical components of industrial objects, assets, facilities and plants for signs of corrosion. For reliable operation it is important to identify the location, rate, and underlying causes of corrosion. A corrosion monitoring program identifies any non-conforming alloy components, as these are generally susceptible to accelerated corrosion and can give relatively frequent cause for catastrophic failure. Corrosion Monitoring can provide significant advantages when integrated into both preventative maintenance and the processes inherent to safety management programs. Based on the results of the Corrosion Monitoring program, informed decisions can be made, not only regarding the remaining life of the object affected by corrosion but also regarding life extension strategies, prospective material selection, and cost-effective methods for remedy of corrosion issues and problems.

 

An effective corrosion monitoring program includes a wide range of activities:

·         Identification of all critical components

·         Identification of component alloy composition

·         Measurement of the location and extent of corrosion

·         Prediction of remaining life

·         Identification of failure mechanisms

·         Determination of fitness for service condition

·         Inspection scheduling

·         Development of recommendations for remedy and correction of problems

·         Development of corrosion prevention strategies
