The experts in locating and sizing stress corrosion cracking:


Coast to Coast was one of the first companies
to specialize in the direct assessment of stress corrosion cracking (SCCDA). Our expertise is specific to locating, identifying and sizing SCC colonies. Stress Corrosion Cracking is a form of corrosion that produces a marked loss of pipeline strength with little metal loss. SCC results in clusters or colonies of cracks on the external surface of the affected pipeline. The cracks vary in depth and length.


Over time, the cracks may increase in depth and length, and link together to form longer cracks. At some point these cracks may reach a critical depth and length combination that can result in a pipeline failure unless the SCC is repaired, the affected pipeline section is replaced, or the operating pressure of the pipeline is reduced.
