PIPING CIRCUITS — ADVANCED THICKNESS ANALYSIS

Unlock the Big Picture Hidden in Your Data

Know where to inspect, when to inspect, and how to inspect.

Using our industry-leading optimization techniques, a North American processing facility reduced corrosion monitoring locations (CMLs) by 36% and reduced annual inspection costs by 33%!

Typical refineries or petrochemical plants have more than 150,000 piping inspection points. Do you know which CMLs provide the most value? Have you identified all susceptible locations; are you inspecting the right locations? CorrSolutions, a subsidiary of E2G, will use your thickness data to identify localized corrosion issues and provide recommendations to optimize inspection points and reduce maintenance costs.

What is Advanced Thickness Analysis?

Simply, advanced thickness analysis uses expert opinion and your data to find localized corrosion or thinning trends in your piping circuits.  The CorrSolutions team will assess the data, identify corrosion or thinning trends, and develop mitigation strategies, even identifying anomalies in your data so they can be addressed.

  • Analyze equipment inspection data
  • Develop and implement piping inspection programs
  • Support turnaround (TAR) planning with recommended inspections, repairs, and reliability projections

Plan your next inspection with confidence – use advanced thickness analysis to eliminate unnecessary inspection points, achieve safer facilities, and minimize inspection costs.

Know WHERE to Inspect

Confidently know which CMLs to inspect.

We will assess your circuits and identify the magnitude and locality of your corrosion.

Know HOW to Inspect

Understand which NDE methodology is appropriate for the corrosion you are experiencing.

We will recommend the most practical inspection technique based on the results of the assessment:

  • Ultrasonic (UT)
  • Radiographic testing (RT)

Know WHEN to Inspect

Schedule next piping circuit inspection based on rate of corrosion and thickness projections, not time or half-life estimates.

We will use corrosion rates with appropriate levels of uncertainty based on the operating service or consequence of failure (COF) to schedule the next inspection.

CorrSolutions Advanced Thickness Analysis Workflow

The advanced thickness analysis workflow combines historical thickness data, related inspection program information, and inspector experience to provide better and more predictive results.  

  • Damage mechanism reviews, per piping circuit 
  • Identify severity and morphology of corrosion 
  • Apply advanced statistical analysis to historical thickness data, CML data, and circuit components 
  • Validate data using Bayesian modeling 
  • Develop risk and inspection plan 
  • Outline CML optimization 

Inspection Partnership

CorrSolutions maintains a partnership with Quality Testing Services (QTS). Through this collaboration, CorrSolutions is able to provide more comprehensive and robust onsite and offsite inspection service offerings. QTS, established in 1980, is known for “quality” work at fair prices and its long-term client relationships, including CorrSolutions.
