Creaform’s Pipecheck 5.0 software major enhancements
07 November 2018
Creaform, a portable 3D measurement solutions and engineering services, recently announced the release of Pipecheck 5.0, which features major enhancements enabling integrity assessment for full pipe joints. Since its introduction in 2011, Pipecheck has become established as the standard for providing accurate and reliable NDT surface damage diagnostics on both the inner and outer linings of pipes, using both ultrasonic testing and 3D scanning, whether for corrosion, dents or gouges in the metal.
Features include enhanced weld to weld inspections: full-pipe joint assessment of up to 18 meter pipes, surface inspection of industry-standard pipe joints up to 56 inches in diameter. Faster analysis and reporting: on-site analysis and reporting up to six times faster. Enhanced workflow: data analysis is performed in sections and analyzed together to produce a single comprehensive final report, so pipeline owners have crucial information they need to act quickly. Multiscanner capability: divide inspection time by the number of scanners used to ensure faster total inspection time.
Other key competitive advantages of the Pipecheck solution include reliable and repeatable measurements that are independent of the operator’s or the technician’s skills.
