Project involved a detailed inspection of all gravity and pressure process water used at seven large breweries in the US. Pipeline materials ranged in age (from 1880 at the Coors facility in Golden CO) to 1980s vintage assets. Field assessment of process and drain wastewater included hydraulic cleaning and vacuum excavating of waste material, external visual inspection and ultrasonic wall loss measurement, internal HDCCTV, and estimate of remaining useful life. Project database was transferred to the M-C asset management system for long-term replacement and renewal of horizontal assets.
Inspection Technology: HDCCTV, leak detection
Inspection Preparation: CCTV, ultrasonics
