The monitoring of process pipelines at main pipeline facilities is regularly performed when they are diagnosed in the course of operation. For many cases of practical importance it seems promising to carry out control of most of the metal using the EMAT in combination with low-frequency eddy current control, complementing these methods if necessary with detailed study of individual metal sections using traditional ultrasonic.This technology will allow to identify dangerous defects, while optimise the productivity and cost of work
