Field survey services, projects, equipment and material provision, pre-operation, inspection, operation and maintenance of cathodic protection systems for pipelines, storage tanks, industrial plants, oil and gas terminals, nuclear and thermo electrical plants, mooring piers, dam metallic curtains, oil platforms, boats and ships, high tension electric transmission tower foundations and other metallic structures, either buried or underwater.
Buried pipeline inspection service through Pearson method, CIPS (step by step), PCM, DCVG, including pipeline geopositioning. These approaches have the advantage of allowing the pipeline coating to be inspected without digging, defining with reasonable precision the places that need repairs. IEC also supplies material and performs the necessary repairs.
Remote monitoring systems of test points, rectifiers and drainage, using safe modems that allow the preservation of the data on the client\'s network. Transmission through radio, cell phone (GPRS), fiber optics or satellites. AC power supply from mains, battery or solar panels, allowing the acquisition of various data, such as voltage, current, pipe-soil OFF potential and other remote ones. It prevents manpower excessive costs by assuring reliability and agility when dealing with emergencies. Freedom to configure the software with alarms that can be activated from the operator\'s cell phones.
These systems protect metallic materials against corrosion through the modification of electrochemical potentials for the metals passivation region. They are often used in tanks and in paper and cellulose equipment industries and in sulfuric acid industries. IEC creates system projects, supplies materials and installs those systems.
Field survey services and study of interference of high voltage electric transmission lines on buried pipelines, including the recommended solution project, installation and material supply of the specified protection devices.
Technical services Inspection, field survey and diagnosis report with recommendations to solve corrosion problems in industrial facilities in general and pipelines. Consultancy, projects and installation of coupons and probes for internal corrosion rate measurement in pipelines and industrial equipment. Operation of monitoring systems, including changing and analyzing coupons and probes.
IEC analyzes and forecasts corrosion failure, and recommends the most modern and efficient anti-corrosive protection solutions, including: material selection, project modification, coatings, cathodic and anodic protection.
With an innovative approach in industrial painting, IEC has qualified inspectorswhom clients can count on to evaluate the existing painting systems and indicate the paints with the best cost/benefit relation in the market. It assists the project with specification, material selection and painting inspection.
ECDA and ICDA are services that assess the integrity of buried pipelines, especially where PIGs cannot be run or hydrostatic tests are not possible. ECDA addresses the external integrity of the pipelines through the detection of areas that present a higher probability of showing corrosion failure. Through the techniques mentioned in the previous item and direct investigation by non-destructive test methods. From the evaluation of the places which are deemed to be more crucial it is possible to assume that the other coating failure points must be in a better situation than the areas that were investigated. The ICDA is similar to the ECDA, but the detection of the points that are more susceptible to corrosion inside the pipeline is done through flow analysis. In the case of gas pipelines, for example, one looks for points where electrolytes may have accumulated.
IEC technicians locate and measure pipeline depth with pipe locators providing coordinates with DGPS tools, all of the latest equipment. Those facts are processed and allow the inclusion of the pipelines in any types of maps with sub metric precision.
Complete internal inspection pipeline program application including cleaning and commercialization of geometry pigs, metal loss pigs (MFL and/or ultrasound), inertial pigs, crack detection pigs and others. Pipeline integrity, including fit for purpose (FFP), corrosion growth studies, repair and maintenance plans and pipeline integrity software.
ROSEN uses the TBIT high-resolution tool, the fastest and more efficient technology for tank bottom inspection. It carries out complete API653 inspections with inspection certificates. It carries out tank integrity studies, including inspection based on risk (IBR).
Corrosion, cathodic protection, industrial painting, equipment inspection, corrosion inhibitors, corrosion monitoring, piping coating, sizing/storage tank inspection and others.
