The use of Automated Corrosion Mapping systems utilizing mechanical scanners have been employed throughout many sectors of industry for equipment condition inspections. Often referred to as AUT Corrosion Mapping, C-Scan or Ultrasonic Corrosion Mapping, this NDT method quickly identifies wall loss.
Ultrasonic Corrosion Mapping plots the interior surface of pressure vessels, piping, heat exchangers, and more. The systems are capable of acquiring actual wall thickness over large areas of vessels and piping while the system remains in operation. AUT Corrosion Mapping is also used for remaining life determinations as prescribed by the facility’s Mechanical Integrity program.
