3-Step Approach for Maintaining High Energy Piping Integrity

High-energy piping systems are essential to the safe and cost-effective operation of a modern power plant. The propensity for piping and failures tends to increase with the age of the systems involved. Prolonged operation, particularly at elevated temperatures, may result in metallurgical degradation. Metallurgical degradation may increase the potential for cracking and crack propagation until
