Inspection and Condition Monitoring of Insulated Chiller Water Pipe Lines

Inspection and Condition Monitoring of Insulated Chiller Water Pipe Lines Deadline: 2020-01-17
Award: INR 8,00,000
Open to: Everyone*

There is approximately 100 km of chiller water pipelines in our plant with pipe diameter ranging from 50mm to 300mm. These pipelines are distributed all over the plant at a height of 20-50 m from the ground. The pipe network has welding at every 6m along with bends and pipe fittings. The ambient temperature around the pipeline varies from 40-75 °C. These water lines are insulated with thermocol, steel wire mesh and the outer layer with cement or Aluminium sheet. Many a time, there is condensation at the surroundings which lead to rusting and weakening of the pipe. The supports of pipelines are metallic and have no insulation which causes condensation and hence rust.

We want to be able to inspect the pipes without rupturing the insulation and plan the repair & maintenance based on the inspection.
