An alternative method for directly measuring effectiveness of AC-induced corrosion control and mitigation efforts. This method takes the form of traditional coupons imbedded with ultrasound testing (UT) transducers designed to directly measure and track coupon metal loss and related corrosion-induced anomalies.
ANSI APPROVED. Addresses applications for cathodic protection (CP) coupons attached to buried pipelines to determine the level of corrosion protection provided by a CP system. Appendixes cover coupons attached to other structures such as underground storage tanks (USTs), aboveground (on-grade) storage tank bottoms, and steel in reinforced concrete structures. CP coupons may also be used to evaluate compliance with CP criteria, including considering the IR drop. PRINTED HARD COPIES REQUIRE A MINIMUM OF 7-10 DAYS FOR PROCESSING BEFORE SHIPPING.
This standard outlines procedures for preparing, installing, and analyzing metallic corrosion coupons. Factors considered in the interpretation of results obtained from these corrosion coupons are also included for the use of oil and service industry personnel. This standard is maintained by TG 409.
