Perfect for projects where assessment is done on-site by a senior technician, while a junior technician focuses on data acquisition. The analysis can also be done off-site by pipeline integrity engineers when on site teams are facing complex cases. Pipecheck Analyze can open any Pipecheck session, change parameters, re-process analysis and export a report.
Pipecheck’s pipeline corrosion software module offers very fast and reliable data processing that generates instant, on-site results. Data are output in a complete Excel report and show increased accuracy and repeatability compared to traditional measurements methods such as pit gauge, ultrasonic (UT) probes and single-line lasers.
As its name suggests, this software module has been specifically developed for pipeline mechanical damage analysis. This module features numerous key functionalities that allow a better understanding of dents and localized surface deformations. Instant results are generated on-site and this is a key factor in maintenance cost reduction.
Being able to separate material loss depth from a mechanical damage deformation is no longer a dream. Pipecheck software is the one and only solution on the market to offer unique and sophisticated tools able to extract corrosion depth inside a mechanical damage. All pipeline operators are aware of the potential impact of a catastrophic failure that complex or combined damages can lead to. Being able to measure accurately both damages contribution to pipeline integrity will directly increase the level of confidence in their pipeline integrity management program. This confidence will result in a lower maintenance cost and in a reduced risk of costly failure.
Experience has shown that various riser tubing are areas that may develop material loss, resulting into corrosion damage after many years of operation. In many cases, small mechanical damages were found on field bends, mainly introduced by human manipulation when building the pipeline. Offshore pipeline may be affected by damage caused by soil movement, ice, etc. Traditional methods for depth measurement (pit gauge) can’t be used accurately since the pipe curvature often introduces depth values that do not represent the material loss or pipe geometry deformations. To solve this issue and to improve efficiency and confidence in results, Pipecheck features a built-in straightening tool. The tool uses powerful algorithms that extracts pipe’s center-line and straightens the full segment. The material loss or mechanical damage can then be assessed with the virtual Pipecheck’s pit-gauge tool to report depths reading free of any pipe curvature.
The ILI Correlation tool is used to correlate in-line inspection data with the Pipecheck 3D scanning inspection data. The user interface has been optimized to compare depth, length, width and burst pressure. In order to properly assess the performance of the ILI tool, pipeline operators need to carry out statistically significant population analyses with the help of a device that offers a better accuracy than magnetic-flux leakage (MFL) technology. The HandySCAN 3D scanners quickly capture metal loss and damage areas and they help building a larger and acceptable population for statistical analysis. Operators can assess ILI performances by comparing pig data against Pipecheck data to help them determine with more precision the sites that actually need to be dug.
