Internal Corrosion Inspections

Conducting an Automated Ultrasonic Test

No matter what corrosion mechanism is at work within your infrastructure, Kakivik is one of the leading corrosion detection companies in the U.S. Utilizing state-of-the-art technology and proprietary software, our technicians employ a comprehensive suite of advanced tools on every inspection job.

Corrosion Surveys • Corrosion Monitoring • Erosion Surveys

Kakivik’s linear array system is capable of detecting internal corrosion on in-service, 18” service lines with external insulation. We can perform manual and automated ultrasonic inspections on in-service pressure vessels, piping, and tanks. Rope Access Technology (RAT) trained technicians allow us to reach all portions of towers, pipe racks, cooling towers, etc. Our internal corrosion services also include corrosion technicians who monitor product through sampling. Lab technicians optimize inhibitor use to ensure systems are working as efficiently as possible. Be it microbial induced corrosion (MIC), erosion corrosion, or general corrosion, we have the technology and people to detect, monitor, and mitigate corrosion.
