Expertise in, among others, the areas of pipeline construction (conventional radiography, portable radiography, X-ray pipeline crawlers, automated ultrasonics AUT--girth weld, certified welding inspectors and asset integrity management); pipeline integrity (close interval potential survey, direct current voltage gradient survey, pipeline current attenuation survey, pipeline depth of cover and survey, pipe line right-of-way GPS survey, pH soil analysis and continuous resistivity surveys, chemical and mechanical pipeline cleaning, MFL inline inspection tools and deformation/caliper tools).
Knowledge of these common areas will allow the results of subsequent Indirect Examinations (close interval survey, direct current voltage gradient, soil resistivity) to be compared in order to identify areas that may be at a higher relative risk of external corrosion than other areas.
Combining a close interval potential survey instrument (CIPS) and a direct current voltage gradient survey instrument in a single package, the Cath-Tech can measure distance, record GPS coordinates and time as well as measure the rectifier ON and OFF and voltage gradient potentials of a pipeline correlated with distance, latitude and longitude.
