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.

Pipetel’s fleet of Explorer robots inspect pipelines as small as 6 inches and as large as 36 inches in diameter, including all sizes in-between.
