A technology to detect corrosion damage and estimate extent and location within an enclosed volume. This coating condition monitoring (CCM) system is a network of sensors that measure conditions and electrochemical parameters to evaluate the health of coating and substrate for steel plates and tanks.
Traditional internal lining schemes for the storage/transport of crude oil & refined fuels may no longer be appropriate. The aggressive nature of crude oil (high temp. & more sour), high purity refined products & increased use of biofuels demand better linings & more certain test results. The focus of this paper is to review the trends in test methodology from the early 1990’s to present.
