The long-term accident-free operation of main pipelines depends on monitoring of their technical condition, level of service, implementation of results of physical methods of their diagnostics. The applied types of marking the main pipelines are considered, which should be replaced by personal bar- and dot codes of pipes. This allows combining the information capabilities of different diagnostic systems and carrying out local repairs without traumatizing the pipes with large excavations, monitoring the operation of pipes with defects, the degree of danger of which should have a colour indication. 14 – Ref., 1 – Table, 14 – Fig.
Key words: main underground pipeline, flaw detection, interpipe diagnostics, monitoring, measurement of polarization potential, magnetometric method, ultrasonic testing, recording of pipe condition, marker and code plates
