PVDF Sensor for Pipeline Inspection
WINS are developing a flexible PVDF sensor for the inspection of above- and under- ground pipelines from a single sensor position. In dry pipe, the technology may be used to inspect up to 100 feet from a single sensor position. In product-filled pipe, it may be used to inspect up to 60 feet. The defect sensitivity to pipe wall loss could be as small as 10% reduction in cross-sectional area. The sensor may also be installed permanently.
- An ultrasonic sensor is wrapped around the pipe OD.
- Long range ultrasonic data is acquired in the upstream direction up to maximum distance.
- Long range ultrasonic data is acquired in the downstream direction up to maximum distance.
- Inspection results are interpreted to providing client wall loss severity and location.
*WINS interpretation MODULE is customized for interpretation of long range ultrasound inspection data. Upstream and downstream data may be viewed simultaneously.
*The software has a built-in GPS reporting function so that defects may be tagged with this important information.
*This is the only LRUT software in the market that exploits real-time artificial intelligence capabilities. It may be used to build your own pattern recognition classifiers using neural networks, minimum distance, etc. classifiers to distinguish between welds, wall loss, flanges, etc.
