A large part of maintaining the mechanical integrity of pipelines is through pipeline pigging. Hydrotech uses state of the art smart pigging technology to clean and inspect the interior of your pipe for corrosion, cracks, and metal loss.
HydroTech offers comprehensive in-line inspections (ILI) built to provide a detailed assessment of your natural gas pipelines. HydroTech is backed with over 10 years of experience in the field, helping to ensure pipeline integrity for pipeline operators through detailed pipeline inspection. Our comprehensive reports contain detailed information about the pipeline.
pipeline pigging procedures
HydroTech Testing Services takes pipeline integrity and safety seriously.
Our process starts with pipeline cleaning using cleaning pigs to prepare the pipeline for inspection. Intelligent Pigs are then sent into the piping when it is actively being used, as to not disrupt service to customers. The pigs move through the pipe with the pressure of the natural gas, probing and analyzing the pipeline interior and exterior for abnormalities, recording each step of its journey. Any anomaly found that may impact the safety of the pipeline is then noted. Pigging is key to leak prevention and can detect the potential for leaks and weak spots before they ever occur.
HydroTech offers comprehensive pigging services to ensure the safety and integrity of your pipeline. Our engineers have the expertise to craft a unique pigging service plan and equipment for your pipeline and products.
