The secret to a successful pipeline inspection is to investigate all the potential challenges to launching and running an In-Line Inspection (ILI) Tool through the pipeline.
Learn about some of the more common obstacles to In-Line Inspections (ILI), and solutions that PICA provides to overcome them.
Graphitic corrosion can be particularly hard to avoid, and if left undetected, can lead to costly damages, if not total failures of your pipeline. Learn more about graphitic corrosion, as well as how to inspect for it, below.
As we discussed in a previous piece on waste water line inspections, regular evaluation of your pipelines is an integral part of protecting the longevity of your pipes, as well as guaranteeing the safety of areas serviced by each vessel. An estimated 240,000 water main breaks occur each year (as per a 2007 report published by the Environmental Protection Agency), with older pipes being an incrementally higher risk for damage as time goes on.
Pipelines that transport raw or waste water are subject to high risk for corrosion. If left undetected, corrosion can lead to dangerous leaks, costly repairs, and other challenging circumstances for businesses and surrounding communities.
At PICA Corp, we have been performing condition assessments of pipelines throughout North America for over 10 years. We specialize in providing our clients with top-notch technology to provide accurate, reliable "remaining wall thickness" measurements for the full pipeline length inspected.
