1.00pm Advancements in Offshore Corrosion Monitoring and Flaw Detection

Marine drilling risers are an area of interest when discussing corrosion on offshore oil platforms as they form the link between the seabed pipelines or well and topside processing equipment. Risers are subject to constant wetting and drying in the splash zone—the area of the risers immediately above sea level. This wetting and drying combined with defects in the risers’ protective coatings can contribute to corrosion. Corrosion is concerning to platform managers because it can reduce the wall thickness and threaten the structural integrity of the risers. Assessing the remaining service life of aging risers is often dependent on corrosion monitoring with NDT technologies. There are several non-destructive testing methods used to inspect marine risers for corrosion, however conventional ultrasonic testing (UT) is often the most convenient and cost-effective method.

11.30am Give Metal New Life Following the Control of Corrosion and Chemical Resistance

KCC Technology is also known as the KST Chromizing Carbide Technology.

Chromium carbide (C-Cr) is chemically formed in the high-temperature vacuum device, which is then infiltrated into the matrix. Following the processing, the process is made to increase abrasion resistance with high hardness (> HV 1700), chemical resistance, and lubrication with the friction coefficient of less than 0.5.

For example, Metal seated ball valves (“Zero” Leakage- Approved KOLAS (Korean Laboratory Accreditation Scheme) with KCC surface treatment of KST show superior performance for these cases:

  • High temperature
  • Conveying powder with high hardness (HV1500 Above)
  • Chemical lines (Various Chemical Acids) with severe corrosion.

Despite its high hardness, it still shows reliability in manufacturing lines due to no brittle and stripping. Metal seats with ultra-precision machining have no leakage and show superior performance at high temperature and pressure.

1) Digitize All Maintenance Routines
2) Proven Technology that Saves up to 50%
3) Be Digital and Work Smart

Today 95% of all maintenance is done using pen and paper. Over the next 3 years, the industry will use about 500BN$ on IOT platforms, algorithms etc. Pen and paper-based information will not be allowed to be entered into the IOT platforms, as it is simply too unreliable.The pen and paper model is slow and leaves no audit trail of what has happened. One does not know if the inspector was by the equipment, and if the inspector was, one has no reassurance that the inspector entered the information into the ERP system. The SafeEx software handles all maintenance routines digital, optimize users’ documentation and saves up to 50% on man-hours spent on maintenance.SafeEx ApS’s 10 years global reference list proves the system values and savings. Allowing users to work mobile and digital, “work smart”.
