Applus+ RTD, a company specializing in the provision of asset integrity technology solutions, will be unveiling the latest additions to its NDT service capabilities. IT will be holding a series of demonstrations and presentations at the International Pipeline exposition and conference.
The exposition takes place between 27 and 29 September, with the conference running between 26 and 30 September. The events bring over 6000 businesses and technical experts in the pipeline industry.
Applus+ RTD will be presenting its difficult to inspect (DTI) solution, DTI Trekscan. This utilises the latest NDT technology for DTI scenarios that are characterised by small diameters, low pressures and bore restrictions. Difficult to inspect pipelines account for almost 50% of all pipe containment breaches.
The DTI Trekscan tool addresses many of the limitations of unpiggable pipelines by having back-to-back 1D bend capabilities and an optimum speed of 1 m/sec. This level of speed and flexibility allows the tool to run in pipelines with most petroleum products, water and crude oil.
Applus+ RTD will be demonstrating its ultrasonic non-destructive testing solution, NDT3D IWEX, which allows for improved defect detection, characterisation and visualisation through 3D imaging.
Applus+ InSite, a big data management solution, will also debut during the exposition. This software solution will assist operators in automating processes, staying compliant and scaling to meet growing demands in today's data hungry market.
