Metal loss anomalies
GE’s inspection capabilities
Any type of metal loss in a pipeline can be characterised by considering its dimensions. The Pipeline Operators Forum (POF) has established a graphical representation of a number of common metal-loss features, as shown below.
GE’s worldwide fleet of in-line inspection tools has an unmatched breadth and depth of data-collection and analysis capabilities to address all types of metal-loss threats to your pipeline.
In order to determine the best tool for the job, operators need to consider three things:
The value of these tools does not simply end with data collection. The level of information provided, combined with their advanced analysis capabilities, will help you more accurately determine the risks involved in each case and substantially reduce the number of excavations necessary for direct assessment and repair.
By incorporating all data into a long-term integrity management process, they (GE) can perform ongoing data analysis services or provide you with the advanced, user-friendly software tools to complete the work internally – giving your staff more access to complete information, and more control over the future integrity of your pipeline.
