Germany-headquartered technical, safety, and certification provider TÜV Rheinland announced it has developed an online inspection strategy for plants operating at high temperatures.

The strategy is aimed towards assisting plant operators of oil companies in maximising the availability and production efficiency of their assets and to reduce and avoid shutdown time.

The application of conventional and automated ultrasonic techniques is currently possible up to temperatures of 475°C.

TÜV Rheinland's newly developed standard procedures can conduct corrosion mapping and weld inspections in low-alloyed carbon steel at up to 350°C.  

The company said it has also "made progress in providing the appropriate solutions for inspections from 350°C up to 475°C at elevated temperatures on complex geometries". 

Shutdown and maintenance periods can be avoided and reduced through inspections at high temperatures, the company announced in a statement, adding that cracking and corrosion spots can also be monitored during production.
