Dual Diameter In-line Inspections for Pipelines
As seen in the November 2010 Issue of the PPSA Newsletter
Many older pipelines, including those in heavily populated areas, have geometries such as small radius bends and diameter changes which have traditionally classified them as unpiggable. The InVista™ tool from Quest Integrity Group inspects such pipelines and provides 100% overlapping data coverage of lines that were not able to be navigated by other pigs.
