Piping Issues

p 001A wide variety of factors all combine to influence the corrosion activity at and therefore service life of any piping system. Each piping system, in fact, has specific inherent vulnerabilities, specific corrosion threats, engineering design and potentially faults, and maintenance requirements.

Often, two or more individual factors are the fause of a failure or corrosion issue.  Some problems are clearly related to chemical treatment efficienty, or lack thereof, while others are related to its original piping design, choice of materials, and operating conditions.
