Remote Tracking


Armadillo Remote Tracking is the safest method of pig tracking and helps operators save money by reducing field costs such as trucks, personnel, and subsistence.

Remote tracking improves safety and reliability while reducing costs

The Armadillo system is the most reliable system for tracking any pig type, on any pipeline. The Armadillo above-ground marker (AGM) tracks and records each pig passage with up to seven sensors and also creates a snapshot of that passage
for record keeping. When remote tracking, the AGM communicates with PureHM’s control room using a GSM or Satellite remote tracking unit. The remote tracking equipment is pre-deployed before an inline inspection (ILI) project, meaning no technicians are required at each site during
the run.

Remote tracking should be used during any ILI where there are safety or access concerns including: long projects where night shifts are required, potential speed excursions, bad weather, traffic, inaccessible or dangerous tracking locations, or ecologically sensitive areas. Remote tracking is also the most cost efficient way of tracking multiple pig runs, as it eliminates the cost of multiple field crews.
