The Role of Non-Destructive Testing in Identifying Loss of Preload in PCCP-lines
Pipelines serve as lifelines for countless industries, enabling the transportation of vital resources across vast distances. Maintaining the safety and integrity of these pipelines is of the utmost importance. One significant threat that can compromise the integrity of Pre-Stressed Concrete Cylinder Pipes, in particular, is the loss of preload, which refers to the reduction of pressure containing capability of the pipe.
Ensuring the integrity and safety of pipelines and water mains is critical for industries and municipalities. Regular and comprehensive inspections are essential for identifying defects and anomalies that could lead to costly failures or catastrophic environmental hazards.

PCCP condition assessment services from PICA Corp.
Large-diameter prestressed concrete cylinder pipes (PCCP) are the most common means of transporting raw water, potable water and waste water over long distances in large volumes. Across North America, in particular, these types of pipelines make up critical infrastructure for municipalities and industrial companies alike. Despite being a highly robust and durable pipe type, PCCP lines still require routine condition assessments to ensure they are free from wire breaks and corrosion damage.
