Crack-detection intelligent pigging

I am with a pipeline operating company in its pipeline integrity department. For the uninitiated; intelligent pigging is an automated NDT procedure. I wish to touch base with individuals who have used it (UT, MFL, EMAT or any other technology).

I work with pipeline integrity and the various ILI tools that are available around the globe. This is currently an interesting area of NDE due to challenges facing the industry with thicker walls and the need to address areas traditionally considered 'non piggable'. Crack detection ILI tools have improve ddramatically in recnet years but still have significant challenge sin terms of orienttaion, wall thickness range and the detection threshold. Would be pleased to engage in dialog on this topic. If you are also interetsed you should investigate the Pipeline Research Council International (PRCI) website who have and continue to evaluate pipeline ILI technologies.

ISAFE3 Intrinsically Safe Sensor System

ISAFE3 intrinsically safe sensor system of Vallen Systeme is especially targeted at the petrochemica
...
l - as well as oil and gas transportation industry. The sensor system is designed for permanent monitoring or periodic inspection tasks. Sensors are available for different AE-frequency ranges optimized for corrosion and fatigue crack detection and other applications. The ISAFE 3 sensor system consists of an AE-sensor (model ISAS3) certified according to ATEX/IEC for installation in zone 0, gas group IIC, IP68, 20 to +60 °C, and a signal isolator (model SISO3) certified for installation in zone 2. An ISAS3 sensor can be mounted in atmosphere or submerged, e.g. in water or crude oil. It is supported by mounting tools for temporary (magnets) or permanent (welded) installation. ISAFE3 supports automatic sensor coupling test and can be used with any AE signal processor supporting 28V supply at 90 mA peak, e.g. Vallen Systeme ASIP-2/A.
