The purpose of this investigation is the collection, analysis, and integration of representative pipeline data. Our dedicated field technicians, laboratory personal, and data analysts ensure the outmost accuracy of sample collection/preservation, analytical testing and reporting of findings. These results are typically used as evidence in determining corrosion related mechanisms. When integrated with system operating temperatures/pressures, critical angles, terrain and coating conditions, GIS/GPS surveys, and other valuable pipeline information, predictions can be made as to where internal/external corrosion may exist. Once the ICDA/ECDA procedure has been implemented, monitoring and collection of anticipated results are the success of the program.
