Pipescan HD

Mapping the Unseen

The Pipescan HD™ solution is designed to maximize speed, reliability, and confidence for the detection of corrosion and pitting in ferrous pipes and surfaces. It increases the total efficiency of integrity assessment campaigns by enhancing the productivity of the inspection team, optimizing the workflow to include on-the-spot reporting, and providing the asset owner with verifiable, recorded data.

The Pipescan HD is the highest resolution MFL scanner on the market. With a high Probability of Detection (PoD), the Pipescan HD is an effective and reliable pipe inspection solution for corrosion and pitting detection. Pipescan deployment is easy with the unique single curvature adjustment tool allowing for a quick inspection setup. No couplant or complicated gate settings are required, connect the Pipescan to the data acquisition instrument, enter inspection details, and the system is ready to go.

Furthermore, all scanned data is automatically recorded and reports can be issued on the spot, giving asset owners immediate visibility on the health condition of their assets, enhancing productivity and efficiency.

Why Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL)?

MFL is a rapid, reliable, and robust corrosion screening technique that detects the volume of missing magnetic material in a component under inspection.

MFL requires limited surface preparation and no couplant is needed. Users require minimal training, and with scanning speeds up to 1m/s (3.2 ft/s), MFL is the ideal solution for fast, cost-effective corrosion detection.

Adjustable Reporting Threshold

Keeping with the goal of a fast and easy to use solution, the software has retained the adjustable reporting threshold feature, allowing the user to only report on what is relevant to the work scope. As all the data is recorded, the reporting threshold can be adjusted post-inspection. By retaining all the data, engineers have the knowledge to the true condition of the asset.

Report on the go

Efficiency tools include a one-click reporting tool designed to improve the overall workflow from inspection to report. Indications can be analyzed on the go, at the end of a scan or the end of a job. Once the analysis has been completed, simply select "generate report", then transfer to a USB key for distribution. Once the inspection is finished, so is the report.
