3D laser scanner
PMC have trained P11 inspectors that are now utilising the handheld 3D laser scanner for pipeline inspections.
The 3D laser scanner provides improved accuracy and quicker turnaround times for inspections compared to the traditional method.
A typical general corrosion inspection can be reduced from 1 hour to around 5 minutes.
Benefits of use
• Reduced repairs due to accuracy of data
• Reduction in site labour
• Faster restoration of pipeline operating conditions.
• Accurate and fast asset data collection
• Pipeline corrosion or mechanical defects
• Complex shapes
• Hard to reach areas
• Fully weatherproof
Our customer says:
“The 3D scanner for P11 inspection is a fantastic piece of kit, providing highly detailed reports in real time whilst reducing time on site, overall cost and potential risk to the asset ultimately allowing the pipeline to be repaired in a timely manner. I will continue to use this kit for any future inspections within Cadent Gas East Midland Pipelines.”
