Although many early pipelines were made of wood, over the past few decades majority of pipelines are constructed with steel. Despite its high strength, steel has a propensity to dent, buckle, corrode…


How does the Villari effect identify stress on metallic pipelines?

PureHM’s Pipe Wall Assessment (PWA) technology – which uses the Villari effect to measure stress changes in pipelines – was initially developed more than 10 years ago to address gaps with tools traditionally used to assess pipeline condition, specifically related to geotechnical concerns and unpiggable pipelines. Pure Technologies, the parent company of PureHM, developed the original PWA system to identify…


Is batch tracking a viable solution to track ILI tools?

Canada has approximately 100,000 kilometers (62,000 miles) of transmission pipeline ranging from 4 to 48 inches in diameter. With the large distance of pipeline and the expectation that Global energy demand will increase by 33% by 2035, safe pipeline operations will continue to be at the forefront for operators. To reduce costs associated with inline inspection (ILI) programs, pipeline owners…
