MISTRAS’ crawlers, along with Real-Time Radiography scanner services are strategically designed, advanced inspection tools that utilize Digital Radiography (DR) to check for abnormalities within insulated and uninsulated pipelines.
MISTRAS’ Automated Radiographic Testing (ART) crawler inspections and Real-Time Radiography scanner services help detect internal corrosion, pitting, and Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI) in your aboveground piping and pipelines, even with product flowing through the lines.
MISTRAS’ Automated Radiographic Testing (ART) Crawler services are strategically designed, cost-effective, advanced inspection tools that utilize DR to check for abnormalities within your piping.
MISTRAS’ patent-pending crawler technology has the unique ability to inspect 100% of a pipe in the time it typically takes to inspect 10% using manual methods. Both the smART and Through-Wall crawlers can also inspect in-service piping, with product still flowing through them, therefore eliminating the need for costly shutdowns.
Our lightweight crawler is used to inspect for CUI in insulated piping and has the capability of inspecting up to 1 mile of pipeline in a single day, subsequently cutting down on time, safety hazards, and overall budget.
Our through-wall crawler services detect internal and external corrosion on insulated and non-insulated pipelines, including lines with product still in them. The system offers a multi-view approach to CUI, scanning the top, bottom, and both sides of a pipe or pipeline. The motorized functionality allows scanning to be conducted on a line’s full diameter. Fully-wireless and weatherproof capabilities allow for effective CUI detection to happen anytime.
Our ART services provide quick and advanced radiographic data results that produce high-resolution DICONDE compliant images.
By giving pipeline operators the opportunity to review inspection video and radiographic results simultaneously, they can collect, process, and analyze data much faster. Collected images are then digitally stored, providing a long-term, easily traceable, and readily-available record of damage.
MISTRAS’ ART inspection services have unlimited autonomous range and are adaptable to various piping/pipeline diameters.
MISTRAS’ (RTR) pipeline automated scanner is at the forefront of pipeline inspection technology, capable of performing Real-Time Radiography inspections of pipeline girth welds at far quicker rates than traditional RTR. Due to its rugged design, lightweight, and easy mobility, the RTR allows MISTRAS techs to complete inspections in the harshest environments, helping our clients to ensure their assets operate safely and productively.
The RTR scanner offers a variety of premium features and benefits, including:
