Corrosion under insulation is a major issue in the oil and gas industry. It can cause difficulty in detection, mainly due to the insulation cover masking potential flaws and/or flawed areas. These flaws can cause failures in areas that are not normally a primary focus of an inspection program.
Failures can be costly at best and disastrous at their worst. IHI Southwest Technologies, Inc. (IHI) newly re-designed real-time Digital Radiography Testing (DRT-2) system, can detect both internal and external defects (such as erosion, corrosion, build-up deposits) on a pipeline or system while it remains in service and without the need of removing any insulation.
