System and corrosion survey


Periodical inspections are essential to perpetuate your protection system because the environment of the installation changes during use: aggressiveness of soil, coatings damage and equipment wear, etc.

Our teams of engineers and technicians, located in different sites and equipped with verified survey tools, perform the following controls and site surveys:

  • Inspection of equipment.
  • ON-OFF and CIPS potential site survey (close interval potential survey).
  • Pipeline coating survey by DCVG (DDRC) and ACVG methods (Radio¬≠detection¬† Pearson).
  • Pipe location.


Existing installations may exhibit corrosion which origin is electrical, electrochemical, chemical or bacterial and requires specific analyses.

A survey will result in a significant reduction of the costs generated by corrosion.
