Did you know that approximately 40% of the world’s pipelines are difficult to inspect due to their small diameter or challenging structure? Each year, countless pipelines throughout North America face significant damage due to missed inspection and maintenance. Leaks, gas pockets, deposits and other issues that plague lines can, and often do, go undetected, allowing them to propagate and eventually fail. If your water or wastewater mains lines are among the many that struggle to find a viable and affordable inspection tool, PICA, in partnership with INGU, is proud to offer a versatile in-line inspection solution that has you covered. Designed to provide high-quality inspections with minimal disruption to active pipelines, “Pipers” are one of the newest innovations on the NDT inspection market and pack a big punch in a tiny package.
