Pipeline monitoring is done from a master control room, where any changes to regular operation are quickly detected. Remote sensors feed the information to the control room.
When pipeline monitoring indicates the need, Focus NDT can rapidly dispatch visual inspection and repair crews with the expertise needed to inspect both the outside and inside of a pipeline. Often used techniques include Ultrasonic Testing, Radiography and Magnetic Particle Testing. We also use in-line inspection tools that travel inside the pipeline to detect potential flaws and problems. Some problems that are detected are welds that have early signs of fractures, corrosion, pipeline thickness, voids, and metal loss.
