Crack anomalies in pipelines are among the most serious threats to their integrity.
Not only do these anomalies pose a serious threat to the operation of the pipeline, they also introduce potential hazards to the environment. But they’re also among the most difficult anomalies to predict because they can occur during the manufacturing process, pipeline installation, or over time, during operation. Detecting these features is an exacting task because they often can’t be seen by the naked eye and can be situated axially or circumferentially. As a result, operators need a partner with the most advanced technical solutions for crack diagnostics and a long history of successfully detecting and reporting these features.
