Internal Corrosion Detection in Liquids Pipelines

This project will build upon previous successful development of a sensor system for gas pipelines that is capable of locating areas of water accumulation, determining the corrosivity of any found liquids, is low cost, and can be operated in both piggable and non-piggable pipelines and extend it to liquids pipelines. This methodology would compliment the LP-ICDA and traditional ILI methods but would provide a direct measure of corrosivity/corrosion rate (an improvement upon LP-ICDA) and would be low cost and could be used in unpiggable pipelines (potential improvements over traditional ILI methods).
