THE Applus+ SOLUTION
Applus+ has developed many proprietary laser systems, setting the standard in collection speed and versatility.
Through our extensive R&D work, often as a result of client requests, we have developed LPIT (the Laser Pipeline Inspection Tool) to aid in the fast and accurate data-collection protocols required to obtain accurate and reliable data on external pipeline corrosion-type defects. Unlike other systems available on the market, LPIT has been designed with the client’s needs in mind. From the quick collection speeds and the accuracy of the data to the field-generated reports including Kappa calculations, Applus+ has set the bar for the industry and continues to strive for improvement.
In addition to our proprietary LPIT system, we have a range of complementary tools at our disposal according to the client’s needs. Most recently, the deployment of multiple Creaform HandySCANs has been instrumental in the collection of data from items other than pipes, including vessels, plates, small pipe areas and complex geometric shapes. Our extensive toolkit enables Applus+ to assist clients in the collection of data no matter what the end use. In most cases, this data is used to determine removed volumes of material; however, the same data may be used for accurate point-cloud creation, as-built/current-state modelling or reverse-engineering activities.
