How to measure wall thickness of the underground pipe?

Hi, folks,

How to measure the wall thickness of the underground non-piggable pipelines? Any instruments or companies? Thanks.

AGR Pipetech has several dimensions of tethered ultrasonic scanners. These are pulled by a self propelling motorized pig. Check www.agr.no

Dear Mr. Wantoknow,

Please contact me to learn all about our unique range of tools to inspect "unpiggable" pipelines.

What access is there to the outside of this pipe.

Dear Mr. Agthoven,
I've changed the title of this conversation to be more specific to determine methods of testing the internal and external of underwater (sea) gas pipelines. these are termed "unpiggable" not due to the nature of the piping network, but due to external conditions not allowing the use of a pigg together with its launcher and receiver.
Awaiting your response,
Ricardo Almandoz

Hi Mr. Wantoknow,

Mr. van Agthoven is on holiday at this moment. We have unique tools which are specifically designed to inspect underwater/unpiggable pipelines. Most of our tools use crawlers to move through the pipeline and performing ultrasonic wallthickness measurements while travelling. Because we use crawlers we do not require any launch/receive facilities on either end of the pipeline. Please contact me on my email address and I will send you additional information. Regards, Jan Pols

es place circumferentially or “around the curve” for applications such as inspection of longseam welds in piping and vessels. Jointly designed by PH Tool and Holloway NDT, the blocks feature side-drilled hole reflectors positioned within novel compound-curves, each with multiple thickness steps. The unique design results in a light and compact form factor, with the largest block weighing just over 15 lbs and spanning just 16 ¾”. Coverage is provided for nominal pipe sizes from 6” to 10” in the small block and 12” to a whopping 56” in the large block. The compound OD curves and multiple wall thicknesses actually exceed ASME requirements, providing exceptional signal response and measurement accuracy. Properly managing beam divergence off the ID and stabilizing beam skew due to probe rocking is essential to maintaining a consistent calibration when inspecting lengthwise on curved surfaces.
