SCT™

LEADING THE WAY FORWARD

IN REMOTE PIPELINE INSPECTION

The only inspection technology in the world that can detect defects and 3D map at the same time.

Uses magnetic signatures to detect wall defects, weld defects, corrosion, SCC, physical features, lateral position and depth of cover.

WHY SCT™ IS BENEFICIAL...

Save money by limiting excavations to segments where corrosion is present under reported damaged coatings. 

Screen a pipeline to locate areas of further investigation with high resolution tools.

SCT™ is not limited by tight turns and valves, pipeline transported material, or diameter and operating pressure changes.

Save money by excavating in the right place for repairs using sub-meter accurate GNSS locational abilities.

Monitor the growth of known areas of corrosion in specific sections of longer pipelines, reducing the need for longer ILI inspections.

SCT™ does not require energy induction into the pipeline prior to inspection, nor changes to pipeline flow rate or CP currents.

USE SCT™ TO...

Map pipeline features such as casings, wrinkle bends, wall thickness and diameter changes.

Locate internal and external corrosion, dents, and weld defects.

Identify locations of illegal hot taps.

Measure lateral deflection and pipeline buckling in geohazardous areas.

Monitor SCC (Stress Corrosion Cracking) even at the microcrack stage in areas where pipelines are at risk of SCC.

Identify location of stuck PIGS.
