Pipeline operators will need to routinely check the condition of pipes, valves and flanges, both above and below ground, effective July 1, 2020 when the new “Mega Rule” takes effect. The checks will rely heavily on positive material identification (PMI) principles. To comply, you need to be able to perform a comprehensive and reliable analysis of steels and calculate the carbon equivalence (CE) accurately. To do this, you need an accurate analysis of S, P, Ni, Cr, Mn, Si, Ti and V, as well as ability to analyze refractory elements, which are typically very challenging due to high hardness and melting points: Mo, Nb, TA, Hf and W. There’s also a growing interest in low concentration of B in steels below 10ppm.
