Pipe Testing Report Content

Sample Ultrasonic Pipe Testing Report

CorrView International provides the very highest level of ultrasonic testing services we know to be available; constantly striving to improve our standards and report presentation.  We have strict field testing and reporting procedures which are explicitly followed in order to ensure the highest level of accuracy and reliability.


Unlike most other services that will provide a nearly worthless one or two page spreadsheet of often inaccurate wall thickness values for the client to decipher and attempt to derive any benefit, we provide a comprehensive report with all the support necessary to fully answer every question and concern.  A typically report of a condenser water or fire protection piping system addressing 65 areas of piping will typically comprise 125 pages in a 3 ring 2 in. hard cover binder.

statistics_resume_140To offer some impression to the volume of our work, in addition to the content of this site, we have developed a database to automatically produce a single page "live" statistical resume of our work and experience in the ultrasonic testing field.  With each additional project completed, new data is automatically added and the resume updated.

We offer this statistical resume at left, and also provide further background information, client listings, and business references upon request.  

A typical ultrasonic testing report is separated into 10 sections comprising support data, background explanation of procedures, summaries, field testing data, and a full narrative explanation of our results.  Information is presented in order to allow the reader to thoroughly understand the conditions which exist, the potential level of threat to operations, and the fitness for service of the piping system. 

We provide definition to the content of our investigative reports below, as well as an Interactive Sample Report.  Those sections of the report are:


Report Table of Contents




Cover page, table of contents, and background data relating to the client and the physical test location.


Executive Summary


A one page review of the entire report summarizing major findings, conditions, threats and vulnerabilities, as well as recommendations toward possible corrective actions.


Introduction to Ultrasonic Pipe Testing


Full explanation of the testing process, equipment employed and measurement theory.  Reviews technical definitions, investigative limitations, and offers examples of common forms of corrosion.  Useful in explaining all aspects of the report and the underlying basis for its generation.


Summary of All Test Results 

Quick graphical and statistical summary of findings for each piping system tested.  Corrosion summary of all areas tested.  Location breakdown of different areas tested.


Detailed Analysis of Individual Test Sites


The most important core component of the report.  One page is produced for every example of pipe tested showing thickness measurements, corrosion rate, percentage of pipe wall loss, and remaining service life.


 Trend Analysis Graphs


Graph summaries of all areas tested, and illustrating our measured trends in wall loss, corrosion rate, percentage of wall loss, and remaining service life.


Priority Listing of All Sites Tested


A descending list of all areas tested in order of greatest threat and grouped according to individual piping system.  Useful as a worksheet of pipe replaced or actions taken.


Conclusions and Recommendations


A detailed narrative summary of the entire report, and including grouped and individual findings, relationships, and recommendations toward corrective actions. 

This summary provides the reader a full understanding of all test results equal to our own, and approaching the level of a personal one-on-one review.  


Piping Addendum


Further detail and explanation to the calculations used in producing the report, and specifically related to the formula used in calculating minimum acceptable wall thickness.  




Various articles and handouts useful toward the best understanding of the report.  Raw wall thickness data, photo documentation of problem areas, related technical bulletins, relevant publications, ASTM pipe wall thickness schedules.


Product Recommendations


Useful solutions to the corrosion problems and conditions identified in the report.  Product and / or services data sheets for review and direct follow-up by the client. 


The above report outline and interactive sample report is typical of the services CorrView International provides.  We can provide sample ultrasonic testing reports related to specific services such as condenser water, fire sprinkler, and domestic water on request.  Please contact CVI for further information.
