Pipetel has been inspecting 8 inch gas transmission pipelines since 2010 that were previously unpiggable due to operational and configuration limitations.

Now our Explorer 8 is equipped with:

  • high resolution MFL sensors for measuring metal loss
  • Laser Deformation sensors for measuring deformations including dents and ovality
  • high resolution cameras for visual inspection

Similar to other Explorer robots in our fleet. Explorer 8 inpsects unpiggable pipelines with no interruption to the gas service as it is tetherless and self-propelled.

April 2015

Pipetel inspects 6 to 36 inch natural gas pipelines that are unpiggable by free-swimming, inline inspection tools and that are tightly integrated with other urban infrastructure.

  • no interruption of gas services during inspection
  • Pipetel inspects 6 to 36 inch diameter unpiggable pipelines
  • high resolution Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL) Sensors measure metal loss
  • Laser Deformation Sensors measure deformations including dent and ovality
  • high resolution cameras for detailed visual inspection
  • detailed actionable customized reporting

Going to the UPSF or AGA Operations Conference in May?

Pipetel is exhibiting and co-presenting at both events.
