The Use of Laser Scanning when Conducting Fitness-for-Service Corrosion Assessments

Laser scanning (profilometry) is a highly effective and accurate inspection method for measuring changes in geometry of pressurized vessels, piping and pipelines. The laser scanning data is used to measure the deviations from normal geometry, such as those caused by corrosion, mechanical damage and other structural distortions. The primary goal of the laser scanning analysis is to feed highly accurate geometric data of in-service vessels and components into advanced modelling and analysis software packages.
