SPIRIT Details

The SPIRIT was developed to quantify the chemical attack on the liner/corrosion barrier of composite equipment in agressive media. It measures the thickeness of the corrosion barrier that is deteriorated in use by the stored products. The SPIRIT provides a simple to use and reliable NDE method to quantify the chemical deteriortaion of composite equipment in corrorive environments and to determine the number of plies required to do the relining. In a nutshell, it measures the thickness of the corrosion barrier destroyed by agressive media. It can indicate the right time to perform maintenance.

The SPIRIT is a very simple piece of machinery. It is a manual, pneumatic tool which grinds fiberglass surfaces. Basically, it is a grinder with a dial which determines how deep a surface must be ground. It has a milimetric dial, that is, each time it is turned 360ยบ, it advances 1 milimeter. So the operator grinds 1 mm and analyzes the surface. If, at that deep, the composite is compromised, he grinds an additional milimeter, analyzes the surface again and so on. This way, it is possible to find out how deep the liner/corrosion barrier is damaged.
