Pigs

Ultrasonic Smart Pigs suit small-diameter pipelines.

Untethered ultrasonic smart pigs, for pipelines and fired heater tubes, inspect straight lines and navigate short radius bends. Operating in several liquid media, units sample 360° of up to 12 miles of tube wall at 2,400 samples/sec, travel velocity of 1-2 fps, and travel measurement resolution of ¼ in. Their transducer offers 3D color-coded representations of wall thickness and units can...
