The LIXI Profiler is portable and calibrated in just a few minutes allowing for quick, accurate information gathered from our inspection on the in-service piping of your production system.
Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI) Most prevalent on insulated process piping that operates intermittently or under 200 F. CUI in the pulp & paper industry can occur anywhere around the circumference of the piping.
Erosion/Corrosion Internal degradation of pipe wall thickness due to high velocity material impacting the pipe. Usually occurs at flow direction changes such as elbows, tees, and reducers. The impacting material can be solid particulates entrained in a liquid process stream or liquid droplets entrained in a vapor process stream.
Chemical Corrosion Pulp & paper processing uses both highly acidic and highly caustic chemicals to reduce wood to various types of paper ranging from photographic paper to tissue paper. Because of the extreme environments for this process piping, internal corrosion is inevitable.
The following are damage mechanisms and system components that are detected and measured by the LIXI Profiler for companies that use process piping in pulp and paper mills:
Your inspection report, which is used for follow up maintenance and to satisfy operational and regulatory requirements, includes visual, quantitative and qualitative data of each individual scanned location.
