As seen in the June 2012 PPSA Newsletter
The technology is a light weight tool that can be hand-carried, lifted and loaded. It performs in low flow/low pressure environments and can navigate 1.0D bends, including back-to-back and mitre bends. Along with this unique navigational capacity, the large diameter InVista tools boast longer battery life and faster on-board computing for greater axial flaw resolution and increased inspection velocity. The technology is ideal for space-constrained environments such as terminals, refineries and offshore environments and delivers a high-resolution data set for a detailed direct-measurement inspection with operational simplicity.
Like all of our intelligent pigging tools, the 16-inch tool uses ultrasonic technology to detect metal loss and deformations, is bi-directional and has dual-diameter capabilities. In addition to corrosion and dents, an InVista survey can also identify anomalies such as laminations and verify nominal pipe wall thickness. The survey comes with a complete engineering fitness-for-service assessment integrated with the standard pipeline feature table.
