KEY CUSTOMER BENEFITS
Traditionally, the internal inspection of unpiggable pipelines has often been cost prohibitive or too problematic for effective pipeline-integrity management. The Applus+ RTD DTI Trekscan, our own-developed tool, has addressed these challenges with key design attributes that allow for the successful inline inspection of unpiggable pipelines.
The standard configuration of RTD DTI Trekscan comes in 15cm (6”) and 20cm (8”) sizes. It is also extremely lightweight – 15kg (33 lb) – and its maximum operating temperature is 40°C (104°F). It is untethered and battery operated. The tool can measure wall thicknesses ranging from 2.8mm (0.1”) up to 50mm (2.0”).
The resulting report provides operators with ranked and screened ultrasonic-survey data that will assist them with maintenance planning for the examined pipeline segments.
