How do you know if your non-metal pipeline is still up for the job? The inspection of non-metal pipelines is not that different from regular steel pipelines, it is merely a matter of understanding your asset. It starts with knowing the failure modes of your pipeline and understanding the mechanics that lead to such a failure. The next step is to determine which inspection techniques will be able to detect the defects that may eventually lead to failure.
As an independent company, IRMS will not limit the analysis to the standard techniques that are commercially used within the Oil & Gas industry. We encourage service providers to investigate the technologies used in other industries and with the help of our clients that have non-standard issues, we can change the boundaries of the current inspection capabilities. Whether you are facing challenges with integrity management or interested in expanding your current capabilities for the inspection of non-metal pipelines, we would like to get in touch with you!
