COLOR ACQUISITION WITH THE GO!SCAN

COMMUNICATING YOUR INSPECTION RESULTS TO CUSTOMERS HAS NEVER BEEN THIS EASY

Color acquisition

COLOR ACQUISITION

Pipecheck software, combined with the Go!SCAN SPARK, now supports textures and colours on 3D meshes. Critical information, such as surface finishes, drawn references and coating conditions, are now visually displayed right on the component’s surface within the Pipecheck software. Take your pipeline analyses to a whole new level with this handy new feature. Communicating your inspection results to customers is simpler than ever before.

Color acquisition with the GO!SCAN
  • Faster acquisition
  • Required less targets
  • Tracking by color and texture
  • Precision up to 100 micron
  • High resolution
  • Additional communication possibility by writing information on the pipeline
  • More realism and better reporting for your customer

CORROSION

Unlike traditional pit gauges, Pipecheck has the capacity to measure both the internal corrosion (thanks to UT or interior 3D scanning if possible) and external corrosion (with 3D scanning) to get a complete 3D visualization of the damages for more detailed, in-depth analyses.

ADVANCED PIPELINE INSPECTION FUNCTIONALITIES

CORROSION IN MECHANICAL DAMAGE
Corrosion Assessment on Mechanical Damage

Being able to assess material loss depth from mechanical damage deformation is no longer an unattainable goal. Pipecheck software is the one and only NDT solution on the market to offer unique and sophisticated tools able to extract corrosion depth inside a pipe’s mechanical damage.

ILI CORRELATION TOOL
Ili Correlation

In-line inspection (ILI) performance levels can be monitored in Pipecheck by correlating pig data against pipeline 3D scanning and/or imported UT data. The interface has been optimized to compare the depth, length, and width of features in just one click. However, the more pipeline operators accumulate a significant amount of data, the more the correlation results are accurate. ILI determines, with more accuracy, which sites really need to be dug up, reducing the number of excavations necessary for direct assessment and repair.

PRESSURE VESSELS - LARGE DIAMETERS
PRESSURE VESSELS - LARGE DIAMETERS

Pipecheck supports inspections of cylinders with diameters of up to 152 m. This enables inspection teams to assess large cylindrical components, such as pressure vessels and distillation columns. Take advantage of all the benefits found in Pipecheck, including the virtual pit gauge, regardless of the size and diameters of the components to be evaluated.

MULTI-RESOLUTION CAPABILITIES
Multi-resolution capabilities

Pipecheck supports multiple resolution levels within an individual scan. The multi-resolution functionality allows users to increase the resolution in specific damage area during data acquisition. Users can even lower the acquisition resolution for the rest of the scan where there is no damage. By doing so, it is easier to carry out larger scans without compromising on the resolution where it matters. Moreover, the multiresolution capabilities, when optimized properly, improve the acquisition speed and reduce the file size for a better overall user experience.
