Monitor the progress of inline inspection tools
Another means to monitor the condition of a pipeline, as well as removing accumulated pipeline debris, is the use of an inline inspection tool. Often times an inline inspection device can get stuck in long pipelines, making it difficult and expensive to locate—but not with the OptaSense inline inspection tool tracking application.
Locate inline inspection tools fast and affordably
By tracking the acoustic signature, our inline inspection tool tracking application follows the progress of a device throughout the pipeline network. As an inspection tool passes through a girth weld inline, the resulting pressure pulses propagate through the pipe. These pulses can be detected a considerable distance away, enabling operators to swiftly identify the location of a stalled device.
