For over 65 years Pipeline Inspection Company, manufacture of SPY ® brand equipment, has been an industry leader in Non-intrusive coating inspection.

We have SPY ® distributors located worldwide and SPY ® is dedicated to providing the best products, services and support in the industry.

Portable Holiday Detectors - SPY ® Portable holiday detectors are designed for various pipeline, plant, and other coating surface applications where the inspection surface remains stationary and the detector is moved over the inspection surface. High voltage detectors are used for thicker coating surfaces such as those used on pipelines and other industrial applications. Low voltage, wet sponge detectors are used for thin film applications.

In-Plant Holiday Detectors - SPY ® In-plant detectors are similar in design to the portable detectors. The key difference being, the inspection surface moves past the stationary detectors.

Jeep Meters -The voltage output of any Holiday Detector is subject to influence by weather conditions, moisture on the pipe, improper grounding and soil conditions. In order to assure the absolute highest accuracy and performance Pipeline Inspection Company has developed 3 special SPY ® Jeep Meters (voltage meters) for checking holiday detector voltage output. SPY ® Jeep Meters are designed to accurately measure the output voltage of any detector.

Pig Tracker Equipment - SPY ® Pig Tracking transmitters & receivers are used to track the passage and pinpoint the location of a pipeline pig that is equipped with an appropriate SPY ® transmitter. These devices enable operating and maintenance companies to minimize the costs involved with excavating and removing stuck pigs. SPY ® offers 4 different sizes of transmitters for use in small to large pipelines. These transmitters vary in battery life as well as the power of their output signal. SPY ® Portable wand based receiver systems are utilized to walk a pipeline to precisely locate a stuck pig. These systems allow for visual and audible indication of a pig location. SPY ® Pig tracking sensors are non-intrusive and are used to indicate the passage of a pig past a given point in the line. The SPY ® PTS system can be linked to a SCADA package or simply used to provide an easy to see visual indication. The SPYPhone ® allows a user to listen to any internal pipeline travelers in motion. This acoustic sensor covers a wide range of frequencies from 1Hz-20KHz.
