Corrosion and erosion of the weld root on offshore and onshore pipeline construction is a serious threat to asset integrity and raises significant safety issues, especially in the oil, gas, petrochemical and nuclear industries. Since corrosion can result in structural failure or loss of containment, which can be costly in terms of repairs, environmental damage and potential risk to human resources, it is essential to continuously monitor critical structures and equipment in order to prevent catastrophic failure.

In the light of growing interest in effective weld inspection methods and techniques, the SGS Competence Center for Non-Destructive Testing is pleased to invite you to a free 60 minute webinar on an ’Introduction to Weld Root Corrosion on Offshore and Onshore Installations’.

SGS offers its globally available and free webinar on Weld Root Corrosion on Offshore and Onshore Installations in order to inform participants about corrosion mechanisms as well as in order to approach how to inspect welds for damage. Moreover, attendees of the webinar will have an exciting opportunity to learn about the advantages, disadvantages and limitations of various weld inspection techniques. In addition, SGS seeks to provide attendees with thorough information on the accuracy of Time of Flight Diffraction (TOFD), a widely used Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) method for flaw detection in welds, as well as Pre-service and In-services applications of TOFD.

With extensive experience and expertize in the field of Non-Destructive Testing, SGS comes equipped with not only the theoretical background, but also useful practical information on reproductibility during multiple interventions, inspection of damage at an early stage, monitoring of damage as well as information on how Pre-Service Inspection can benefit In-Service Inspection.

Hosted by Ton Kooren, Global Expert Advanced NDT, the free 60 minute webinar will be available across the globe in Asia, Europe, the Americas and Africa in four sessions in order to meet the needs of attendees in every time zone.

The following four webinar sessions have been scheduled:
