Electromagnetic testing provides the best condition assessment data for large diameter metallic and concrete pressure pipelines.

Electromagnetic Testing (ET) is a form of nondestructive testing (NDT) for pipelines that uses the process of inducing electric currents / magnetic fields either inside or on the surface of a pipeline to measure an electromagnetic response. By creating these fields, defects inside the wall of the pipeline can be measured by analyzing specific electromagnetic signatures produced.

Robotic Pipeline Inspection | Robotics

Capable of performing multi-sensor inspections in dry pipe or while submerged, the PureRobotics pipeline inspection system has a range of up to 3 miles from a single access point. PureRobotics uses powerful modular robotic pipeline inspection systems that can be configured to inspect virtually any pipe application 12-inches and larger.


Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL) - Assessing Metallic Pipelines

The most accurate method of metallic pipeline condition assessment is MFL in-line inspection using advanced nondestructive electromagnetic methods to scan the full circumference and length of the pipeline for damage by corrosion and other causes.


Structural Monitoring for Buildings & Structures

SoundPrint® is a patented innovative monitoring technology that can detect and locate failures in high-strength steel wire, strand or cable through continuous, non-intrusive remote monitoring. This provides managers with desktop access to a single-source, reliable service for all instrumentation requirements, providing information where it's needed, when it’s needed.


PipeDiver | Free-Swimming Electromagnetic Pipeline Inspection

Once inside the line, PipeDiver™ will travel with the flow of the water until it reaches a predetermined extraction point which could also be a hot tap connection and insertion sleeve, existing access, open chamber or resevoir. Its flexible design ensures that PipeDiver™ can easily navigate butterfly valves and bends in the pipeline, while travelling long distances.
