Conventional Tracking


Armadillo Conventional Tracking allows operators to track pigs using traditional methods with the increased reliability of
the Armadillo above-ground marker (AGM).

The Armadillo AGM records every pig passage with multiple sensors

The Armadillo system is the most reliable tracking method for all pig types, in any pipeline. The Armadillo AGM tracks and records each pig passage with up to seven sensors and also creates a snapshot of that passage for record keeping. During conventional tracking projects, PureHM employs the traditional leap-frogging method of tracking using the Armadillo AGM, which provides more redundancy than methods which only use a geophone to identify the passage.

Armadillo Conventional tracking is ideal for short distance inline inspection (ILI) projects, or projects with limited safety concerns where one technician can track the pig. In these situations, Armadillo conventional tracking is more cost-efficient than remote tracking, yet still provides the reliability of the Armadillo AGM.
