It’s a brand new year when new possibilities and innovations lay ahead.

At Pipetel we’re anticipating a dynamic 2019, we’ve got a lot of exciting new initiatives and investments to talk about. Here’s a glimpse of what we’re doing:

The Importance of Accuracy and Testing

At Pipetel we have invested heavily in stocking pipes from all sources and running our fleet of Explorer iLi robots through them to qualify, validate and improve our service offering. Running test after test in pipes with differing characteristics allows our team to assure the quality and continuously improve our deliverables. It’s this kind of attention to detail that all of our clients can rely on. Our job and our mission is to ensure the safety and longevity of your pipelines.

As the year draws to a close, it’s a great time to reflect on what has been accomplished and to set our sights on what we hope to achieve in the year to come. For Pipetel, the year was marked with several important milestones that make the future even more exciting:

First Run Success Rate of close to 100%
Our on-going commitment to improving and innovating our technologies and services has led to increased inspection efficiency. With a focus on quality assurance, training, communication and collaboration with our clients, a consistently high first run success rate brings confidence.

New Pipetel office
New Facilities, New Opportunities
This month we moved into new facilities that are 2.5 times larger than our previous headquarters! At the new location we are able to serve your needs better with increased space for demonstrations, testing, and quality assurance. We’re proud of our new robotics and operations center and we invite you to come and visit us anytime for a tour!

“Whether it’s your first year with Pipetel, or your eighth: thank-you!”

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: every client is important to us. Focusing on your needs and your challenges, makes us better at what we do. And our continued success is because of your trust and loyalty. Thank you.

What lies ahead?

While we can never know the future, we are confident that our continued focus on innovation and improvements to efficiency and effectiveness will help us be your best choice for protecting the integrity and safety of your pipelines.

Thank you for helping make 2018 a great year. We look forward to the next opportunity to work with you.

Examining Data Quality of Robotic Pipeline Inspection Methods

Recently Pipetel published an article that examines the ability of robotic pipeline inspection methods. It covers results and specific examples of pipeline anomalies, as well as the quality of data acquired.

Using robotic pipeline inspection is economical and pipes are more accessible in areas which are difficult for hydrotesting or direct assessment, such as urban or congested areas, environmentally sensitive areas, or areas such as highways, railways and bridges. Pipetel’s Explorer inspection provides comprehensive data and information about the integrity conditions of the pipeline that allows engineers to develop effective maintenance plans.

  • The MFL sensors are capable of magnetizing the pipe materials up to the maximum wall thickness capability of the sensors.
  • The resulting MFL data from an Explorer inspection offers the distinct advantage of being free from any speed related degradation.
  • The deformation sensor on Explorers also offers superior circumferential resolution as it is continuous since a laser is used without any discrete spacing.
  • The MFL and deformation data are always complimented by visual evidence captured by cameras.

Come speak to the Robotic Pipeline Inspection experts…

In September 2018, members of the pipeline industry from around the world will gather in Calgary for the 12th International Pipeline Conference (IPC 2018). The International Pipeline Conference is designed to inform, enlighten and motivate.

Pipetel will be exhibiting at Booth 117 on the Upper Level.

International Pipeline Conference (IPC 2018)
Calgary, Alberta
September 25-27, 2018
International Pipeline Conference (IPC 2018)

Our Pipetel EXPLORER iLi Robots provide inline inspection services that provide data allowing operators of natural gas pipelines to implement a proactive pipeline integrity management and maintenance program. We provide a range of services in unpiggable pipelines from 6 to 36 inches including inspection for metal loss, dents, mechanical damage and video.

With Pipetel EXPLORER iLi you capture every little detail of your pipe

For many operators, challenging pipelines mean deploying a simplified assessment methodology and accepting minimal data in return. If you are on a multi-year assessment cycle, this means there’s a lot you don’t know for a long time, about your pipeline’s integrity.
