Paper Abstract

Detecting corrosion in insulated piping is a major industry problem and the consequences of not detecting corrosion can be costly. Digital radiography allows the user to examine insulated piping for internal and external corrosion defects while the piping remains in service. This technique minimizes the need for scaffolding, eliminates the need for insulation removal, and provides industry with a cost-effective means of examining its insulated piping systems.
