Pipecheck 3.3 Software Update Is Here
Introducing the safest, easiest and fastest NDT pipeline integrity assessment solution on the market today. Pipecheck is both a comprehensive and easy-to-use tool that enables NDT service companies and pipeline operators to strike the ideal balance between the need to fulfill mounting demands for energy and guaranteeing the public’s safety.
Here’s some of the enhancements included in the new release – Release date: May 18
New method for dent size calculations: More precise dent calculations that replicate repeatable and user-independent on-field measurements more accurately will enable users to better evaluate mechanical damage.
Strain-based assessment 2.0: This new approach introduces advanced strain calculations, according to ASME B31.8, along the pipe as well as visualization tools for strain-based assessments. Users will be able to more efficiently interpret results, thereby facilitating decision making with respect to the repair actions to take.
New feature for corrosion classifications: Based on standards issued from the Pipeline Operator Forum, Pipecheck now further characterizes the type of corrosion on a pipeline, such as pitting, generalized corrosion, axial and circumferential grooving, and more.
Automatic anomaly vs cluster classifications: Pipecheck can now automatically distinguish and identify clusters from anomalies, thereby helping operators pinpoint critical issues on a pipeline. This feature also helps to evaluate the performance of a pig as it detects anomalies and clusters. This in turn optimizes where priority excavations must be performed.
