The SmartBall tool has an IMU that can provide operators with a confirmation of alignment and field-generated pipeline map.
During an inspection, the SmartBall® sensors measure directional changes in the tool while it traverses the pipeline, which is then combined with known features to create a map of the pipeline. The output can then be used to confirm alignment or generate maps on pipelines with no information.
Why Choose PureHM?
The SmartBall platform can provide several sources of data in a single deployment and can easily assess unpiggable pipelines.
Combining pipeline mapping with other inspections allows operators to acquire more information
in a single deployment.
The SmartBall tool is easier to deploy than convention mapping tools and can be used to assess any pipeline 4 inches and larger.
