The Perfect Fit For Water Infrastructure Inspection

PICA Corp is pleased to offer Ingu Solutions’ line of Pipers®, an affordable and easy to deploy screening tool used to identify risks and performance issues in pipelines. Launched in 2018, and developed in Canada, Pipers® are truly a groundbreaking technology that continue to push pipeline inspection development forward.

What Are Pipers®?

Ingu Solutions’ Pipers® are miniaturized (roughly the size of a golf ball) sensors that can be placed inside a pipe and let flow with the product stream. The small stature of the sensors means that there are no diameter or flow constraints. Why is this important? An estimated 40 percent of the world’s pipelines are too difficult or expensive to inspect using traditional methods. Ingu’s Pipers® offer a cost-effective solution that provides comprehensive and reliable data.
