Specializing in pressurized and lined pipeline applications, our services leverage state-of-the-art technology and innovative inspection tools to provide detailed insights into pipeline integrity and condition across the province.

1. Pre-screening NDT in Alberta

In Alberta’s diverse pipeline landscape, our Pre-screening NDT service employs cutting-edge Multi-Sensor Acoustic Sphere Technology Inspection Tools. These autonomous tools navigate freely within in-service pipelines, adeptly handling materials such as cast iron, ductile iron, carbon steel, and various concrete and lined pipes prevalent in the region. They are instrumental in early detection of leaks, gas pockets, and magnetic features in non-metallic pipelines, setting the stage for subsequent detailed inspections.

2. Visual NDT for Alberta’s Pipelines

Our Visual NDT service utilizes advanced High Definition CCTV, Laser, and Lidar Technology Inspection Tools, tailored for out-of-service pipelines across Alberta. These sophisticated tools, capable of self-propulsion or being tethered, offer in-depth internal imaging, essential for identifying potential pipeline integrity issues. This service is particularly valuable for its ability to provide detailed visual assessments, either as a standalone service or in conjunction with our Advanced and Standard NDT services.

3. Standard NDT across Alberta

The Standard NDT service, centered around Electromagnetic Near Field Eddy Current Technology (NFT) Inspection Tools, is designed for the thorough examination of out-of-service pipelines. These tools are particularly effective in Alberta’s infrastructure, identifying critical indicators such as broken wires or bars in concrete and steel cylinder pipes, which are crucial for assessing the risk of pipeline failure and planning necessary interventions.

4. Intermediate NDT for Targeted Inspection in Alberta

Our Intermediate NDT service, utilizing Handheld Electromagnetic and Ultrasonic Technology Inspection Tools, offers flexible inspection solutions for both in-service and out-of-service pipelines. These tools provide localized inspections, crucial for Alberta’s industries, identifying specific issues such as wall thickness reductions, pits, and corrosion with precision, aiding in accurate integrity assessments.

5. Advanced NDT for Comprehensive Analysis in Alberta

The Advanced NDT service, featuring Electromagnetic Remote Field Eddy Current Technology (RFT) Inspection Tools, delivers extensive pipeline inspections. This service is indispensable for Alberta’s complex pipeline systems, offering detailed cross-sectional pipe wall thickness measurements and identifying areas of wall loss, essential for a thorough evaluation of pipeline integrity.
