This paper discusses how the interpretation can be correlated with respect to tube metallurgy and inspection findings. A model is suggested with a comprehensive approach for tube retirement plan based on a combination of NDT inspection and metallographic techniques. The paper discusses the methodology for more precise judgment of tube condition with an individual rating for replacement planning by correlating Automated Ultrasonic Scanning (AUS) results, outer diameter measurement results etc.
