Deadlegs can be defined as locations in piping circuits containing idle, stagnant or intermittently flowing fluids. Corrosion in deadlegs represents a significant threat to the integrity of hydrocarbon production facilities.Deadlegs include components of piping that normally have no significant flow. If a piping circuitcontains a deadleg, then the likelihood of thinning activity at this location will be higher and accordingly, the risk of failure for that specific piping circuit will be increased.
