MWM-Array Detection & Characterization of Damage through Coatings and Insulation

The Performing Organization will deliver new capability for inspection from outside pipelines, without coating/insulation removal. The goal is reliable/rapid imaging of external/internal corrosion, mechanical damage, and stress corrosion cracking (SCC). With matching funds from Chevron, we will first adapt Meandering Winding Magnetometer (MWM)-Array technology for external damage, using high frequency methods. This includes integrated field demonstrations within twenty-four months. Solution for internal corrosion will transition later, using lower frequency methods.
