For pipeline operators, C-FER’s cyclic pressure testing system provides a rapid, full-scale verification of remaining service life predicted by fatigue damage accumulation models. The test cell is ideally suited to test pipe that is removed from service and contains stress corrosion cracking or seam weld defects. By reducing the conservatism and uncertainty of predictive models, full-scale cyclic test results allow pipeline engineers to cost-effectively manage the integrity of their pipelines.
This service is also available to support the design and regulatory approval for the fatigue life of pressure vessels developed to transport compressed (or liquid) natural gas.
