How to integrate inline leak detection with pigging or smart inspection programs

Pigging can be an onerous task depending on the frequency of inspections and conditions of the pipeline. Some operators are required to clean lines regularly, resulting in high man power costs to execute these programs. Smart pigging can be further complicated when pipeline geometry and design need to be considered to ensure the pipeline can accept the tool. Inline leak…


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…
