The form and severity of a corrosion condition is highly dependent upon the specific piping system involved. Steam and hot water systems do not suffer outer surface condensation corrosion. Dry fire sprinkler systems corrosion in an entirely different mode than for a wet fire standpipe. Condenser water corrosion is dramatically different in comparison to a waste piping system.
This is extremely important to recognize and understand during any ultrasonic or other forensic investigation in order to successfully identify and assess true corrosion conditions and therefore piping condition. For that reason we offer below 10 common piping types and the various forms of corrosion relative to each.
