NEN-ISO 18211 specifies a method for long-range testing of carbon and low-alloy steel above-ground pipelines and plant piping using guided ultrasonic waves with axial propagation applied on the entire circumferential pipe section, in order to detect corrosion or erosion damage. The guided wave testing (GWT) method allows for fast inspection of above-ground pipelines, plant piping and cased road crossings, giving a qualitative screening and localization of probable corroded and eroded areas. GWT is typically performed on operating piping systems. This International Standard is applicable to the following types of pipes: a) above-ground painted pipelines; b) above-ground insulated pipelines; c) painted plant piping; d) insulated plant piping.
