How inline leak detection can support your inline inspection program

While leak detection and inline inspection (ILI) are different areas of pipeline integrity, the use of inline leak detection tools can support ILI results. For example, the results of a MFL inspection point to areas of corrosion along the pipeline, including size and depth of the defect identified. The depth of the defect is very important, as it indicates how…


How is the SmartBall tool different than a conventional inspection pig?

PureHM’s SmartBall tool is easily deployed in conjunction with other smart pigs, however it is significantly different than these tools in terms of its versatility. Smart tools – such as MFL, geometry tools and UT tools require significant man power and operator support to deploy. They also require pigging facilities and typically have notable bend restrictions that need to be…


Leak Detection and Regulation

Unlike inline inspection, above-ground inspection and hydro testing, inline leak detection is not currently mandated on all pipelines in North America. However, in specific cases, inline leak detection can be mandated. An example of this is a major operational change – such as a flow reversal – that might result in regulators mandating specific inspections for a period after the…
