Pipe Sample Analysis.jpg


A special activity set up to provide operators of water distribution systems with accurate information on the remaining life of installed pipelines, and hence prioritise rehabilitation programmes.

The following are quantified and evaluated as part of the analysis;

  • External corrosion
  • Internal corrosion
  • Tuberculation
  • Soil corrosivity
  • Stray current interference 

The measurements can be used to provide guidelines for safe operating pressure
