Mastering Ultrasonic Corrosion Monitoring

In the demanding world of oil and gas infrastructure, preserving the integrity of pipelines and equipment is paramount. At Kiefner, we employ the ultrasonic corrosion monitoring technique, a non-intrusive method adept at mapping material thickness with unparalleled precision. This advanced methodology is essential not only for detecting the initial signs of degradation but also for closely monitoring progressive changes over time.

Understanding the Technique

Ultrasonic corrosion monitoring offers a comprehensive visual insight into the health of a structure:

  • Identifying Thickness Variations: By gauging material thickness, we can pinpoint disparities attributed to corrosion or other degradation events. This enables timely interventions, preventing potential catastrophes.
  • Graphical Representation of Complex Issues: Complex corrosion-related challenges such as stress corrosion cracking (SCC) or hydrogen-induced cracking (HIC) can be graphically depicted, making it easier for teams to understand and act upon.
  • Digital Storage & Future Reference: Captured data is meticulously stored as a digital image. This serves as an invaluable reference for future inspections, ensuring consistent monitoring and tracking of any alterations or degradations over time.
  • Color-Coded Analysis: A unique feature of our monitoring method is the use of color coding. This visual differentiation effectively highlights differences in thickness readings, making it intuitive to discern areas of concern at a glance.
