What is the setup all about?
The goal of this study is to evaluate the Mobizen technology for the inspection of pipe sections that are located in casings. The laboratory setup is composed of four pipes in different conditions. In addition to the measurement of the corrosion activity of the pipe itself, more than 50 other sensors are installed.
Combining temperature, humidity, pH and ground potentials provides a better insight in the corrosion phenomena.
What are we trying to solve and how?
The working principle of Mobizen is based on the analysis of an electrochemical signal. Mathematical algorithms detect slight changes in corrosion activity of the outer surface of the connected pipe. This is especially crucial for pipe-segments that are difficult to inspect like pipes that are buried in casings.
