Changing PHMSA regulations have created more of a demand for maintenance inspections. Scheduling inspections before a leak occurs can save your company time and money. Our canine teams can be scheduled on a Monthly, Quarterly, or Bi Annual maintenance schedule.
Stress Corrosion Cracking
According to PHMSA, new pipeline Integrity Management regulations will promote early identification and repair of SCC.
SCC is the result of cluster of cracks along the external surface of a pipeline. These cracks can link together and create larger, longer cracks. Over time these cracks can reach a critical point that results in pipeline failure if not repaired. If SCC of sections of pipeline are not identified, a costly breach can occur along with clean up, fines, and negative company image.
K9 Pipe Inspections leak detection dogs can locate pinhole leaks and cracks that other modern technology cannot. A highly trained detection dog can detect well beyond parts per billion while most modern technology can only detect at parts per million. With a regular maintenance schedule, our canine teams can pinpoint hairline cracks so appropriate maintenance can be done before a serious breach can occur.
