Pipe Inspection in Gas Pipe Pigging
Pigging back-to-back 45° bends
No launchers required
Insertion as small as 22"
Previously unpiggable pipelines were successfully navigated by a robot
It was crucial that pipelines were inspected for safety due to the natural gas pipeline being buried under a densely populated urban area. The pipeline hadn't been previously inspected due to their age; they were built without pig launchers or traps.
The pipeline had never been inspected due to several complications
The aging pipeline was complex and built around underground infrastructures
The Pipeline had never been inspected due to the complex pipeline geometries difficult for traditional pigs. Traditional flow-driven smart pigs were not suitable to inspect the pipeline for several...
