Creaform Upgrades Pipeline Software

Creaform has released an updated version of its software platform for pipeline corrosion and mechanical damage assessment, developed for pipeline operators and NDT service companies.

Pipecheck 2.1 implements a measuring tool comparable to a pit gage. The "virtual pit gage" manages depth measurements near welds, valves, floors and other obstacles, the company says.

Creaform's updated software uses a virtual interface to perform in-line inspection correlation with data acquired by its Handyscan 3D. According to the company, the interface has been optimized to compare depths, lengths, width and burst pressure.

Pipecheck 2.1 includes a virtual pit gage, in-line inspection correlation, and internal surfaces analysis.

"The idea to develop an ILI correlation functionality emerged from our will to find a solution to the dilemma that pipeline operators face on an ongoing basis," said Jérôme-Alexandre Lavoie, product manager.

The software also has an internal surfaces analysis tool, to determine internal corrosion on pressure vessels or ducts.

"With this release, we continue to target the O&G market, but the new functionalities will be particularly interesting for refineries, as they make pipeline inspection possible despite the presence of complex elements such as valves or welds," said Lavoie.

Creaform plans to hold a workshop Nov. 4 at the American Society for Nondestructive Testing Annual Conference  to present the software's new functionalities, give hands-on practice, and a live demonstration.

About the Company

Headquartered in Lévis, Québec, Creaform develops and manufactures portable 3D measurement technologies and provides 3D engineering services.

What does this software has to do with the actual internal or external pipeline coating systems? Would it tell you much about the likely corrosion rate or how quickly an eventual coating film can degrade and hint at any plausible reasons? Bogdan Dana
