Vessel Scanning

Vessel Scanning

The corrosion screening and monitoring of vessels and drums with a wall thickness up to 30mm can be inspected with the SLOFEC™ Scanners from the inside or the outside. Full vessel monitoring packages including comprehensive reporting systems are also offered. Applied during process conditions as a fast corrosion screening technique, the SLOFEC Vessel Scanning supports ideally as an Non-Intrusive Inspection (NII) technology.

The aims of vessel inspection are:

  • Meeting the authorities' health and safety requirements
  • Identification of corrosion area and monitoring of corrosional growth
  • Determination of vessel integrity
  • Verification of previous inspection results
  • Supporting Non-Intrusive Inspection (NII) packages or strategies

Innospection's SLOFEC™ technique for vessel inspection offers the following advantages:

  • Fast screening of large areas within a short time
  • Low surface preparation and limited cleaning prior to inspection
  • High sensitivity in detecting internal and external corrosional defects (individual pitting, microbiological corrosion, carbon dioxide corrosion, etc)
  • Inspection over a wide range of wall thicknesses
  • Inspection through coatings and paintings
  • Inspection over a wide range of temperatures
  • Distinguishing between defects and laminations or inclusions

Innospection's capabilities in vessel inspection using the SLOFEC™ technique are:

  • Experienced with vessel wall thickness range up to 30mm
  • Experienced with vessel coating thickness up to 5mm
  • Experienced with vessel temperature up to 120 deg C
  • Experienced with inspecting stainless steel and Monel-clad vessels
  • Able to inspect horizontal and vertical vessels both internally and externally
  • Able to inspect different vessel materials (carbon steel, stainless steel, duplex, super duplex, monel, etc)
  • Able to provide online 'Real Time' inspection analysis including wall loss severity classifications
  • Separate reporting capability on both internal and external conditions
  • Defect assessment, integrity and monitoring support
  • Special cracking detection tools are available
