The trial has suggested that: 1) the location of the repair is easily identified using axial MFL; 2) large pipe wall defects can still be identified and measured beneath the repair using axial MFL, but there is considerable "noise" generated by the presence of the narrow strips and gaps in the repair; and 3) the noise is practically eliminated by the SMFL tool, which allows pipe wall defects and strip defects to be detected, subject to the defect being within the limits of the tool's sizing specification.
