Pipeline Deposition Scanning Service

Benefits of the Rocsole Pipeline Deposition Scanning Service

Our instrumented pig sensor quantifies and characterizes solid deposits in piggable flow lines and pipelines. Beyond simply preventing blockages, you can use the information gathered from our Pipeline Deposition Scanning Service to:

How Our Pipeline Deposition Scanning Service Works

Safe and cost-effective, Rocsole's Pipeline Deposition Scanning Service uses a unique, non-nuclear tomographic instrumented pig sensor that inspects pipelines for exact deposition build-up location, thickness and type. Our non-invasive sensor works in a multiphase flow, allowing production to continue without interruption. There is a minimal risk of the sensor becoming stuck in the pipe because the sensor diameter is significantly smaller than the pipe diameter and the sensor material is flexible foam.

Pipeline Deposition Scanning and Monitoring

Following the pipeline inspection scan, you receive a visual report on the state of the deposition along the pipeline inspected. The report helps you plan cleaning operations and define future deposition monitoring needs in order to optimize preventative maintenance actions such pigging cycles and dosage of inhibitor chemicals. For continuous monitoring and preventative maintenance, our Deposition Watch can be installed in deposition trouble spots.
