Course overview
This course reviews the ICDA (Internal Corrosion Direct Assessment) process in dry and wet gas piping systems.

ICDA incorporates various examination methods and provides a methodology to best utilize those methods for specific applications.
It will review the following four (4) steps in this methodology:

1.-Determining if internal corrosion will occur (Pre-Assessment Data),
2.-Finding ongoing corrosion (Depth of Cover, Elevations, and Modeling),
3.-Measuring damage that has already occurred (Ultrasonic Testing) through direct examinations and
4.-Determining if metal loss occurred, mitigation, and reassessment intervals (Based on Results of Direct Examinations).
  • Video time: 1.25 hours
  • Exams: 1
