Abstract

Inspection from a single probe position for corrosion detection in tubular structures and pipe is discussed. The range can be 5 feet on to several hundred feet depending on tubular conditions of insulation, coatings, or environment. Several new focusing systems are presented and compared with currently available axisymmetric instrumentation. Focused systems are more sensitive, have greater penetration power, and also reduced false alarm rates.
