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.
