Oil and Gas Pipelines
Oil and Gas pipelines become magnetized through the use of MFL Smart Pigs. The IDMAG System from Industrial Degauss is a pipeline demagnetizer and can be used on any diameter pipe, large or small.
Steam lines typically feature high chrome content piping and are located in close proximity to power generating units. These pipes require TIG roots which is very sensitive to magnetism and arc blow is a real problem. The IDMAG System is used to remove the magnetism and allow welding to proceed.
Rotating Machinery can become magnetized during service or during repairs and machining. Magnetized components can introduce dirt into lube oil systems and they can cause false vibration and proximity probe readings leading to downtime. Demagnetizing rotor components with the IDMAG System is easy and effective.
