Revolutionizing Flange Inspection: The Power of Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing for Detecting Crevice Corrosion
Posted: 2023-4-18Flanged joints play a crucial role in connecting pipes, valves, fittings, and pressure vessels in various industries. However, the design of these joints makes them vulnerable to corrosion, with crevice corrosion being the most common and aggressive type. Crevice corrosion occurs when corrosive substances become trapped within the sealing gasket, leading to serious risks and hazards. This problem is more pronounced in extremely corrosive environments, making regular inspection and maintenance essential to c...Read More.
