  • Pipeline integrity rule

    Historically, transportation of oil and gas by pipelines remains the safest and most economical mode compared to other modes. However, pipeline integrity does cause a concern to the public and environment along the pipeline route because of its ever presence at the location for its entire useful life. U.S. pipeline failure incidents in the late ’90s accelerated the process of mandating pipeline ...

  • ELECTRONIC WATER TREATMENT REDUCES FOULING AND CORROSION IN PIPELINES

    Increasing pressure loss in the pipeline is often caused by scale corrosion or product fouling of the internal surfaces. This condition slows transmission and distribution capacity, and can require more than just routine maintenance if it remains unaddressed. Interior corrosion, fouling and leakage in pipeline systems will adversely impact bottom-line operations. ...
