FSM data analysis - major manufacturing services provider

Challenge

Stork was tasked with analyzing corrosion monitoring system data from a Field Signature Method (FSM) IT system, and collating the information into a client specific report.  Severe metal loss was detected which prompted discussions with the client on corrective actions. A spool was also removed and, upon inspection, the metal loss analysis findings were confirmed. The FSM monitoring solution was installed across the welds on the apex’s of two bends.

Solution

Stork’s skilled technicians utilised the company’s robust FSM data analysis procedure to complete a detailed wall thickness analysis. All reports and analysis were put through a stringent two-stage verification process to ensure all anomalies were captured and validate the accuracy of results.

Severe metal loss was detected which prompted discussions with the client on corrective actions. A spool was also removed and, upon inspection, the metal loss analysis findings were confirmed. Stork retrofitted a new FSM-IT system on the replacement pipe that was installed and continued the data analysis services.
