In our last Ultrasound Testing blog, we looked into the different types of corrosion and erosion. Now we’re looking at how to control pipeline corrosion.
The first step would be to have employees/contractors trained in corrosion control. When pipeline operators assess risk, corrosion control must be an integral part of their evaluation. Corrosion control is an ongoing dynamic process. There are a few key aspects that you need to keep in mind in this process:
- Quality design and installation of equipment
- Use of proper technologies
- Ongoing maintenance and monitoring by trained professionals
- Controlling the pressure, flow, temperature, and filter/control the make-up of fluids.
Controlling erosion can be a straightforward process, but it can be an even better process if you have the right tools, namely the UT5000!
