We’ve seen major improvements in pipeline safety and maintenance in the past several years. These changes are all thanks to a growing focus on developing new technology to replace age-old techniques for leak and corrosion detection, data collection, and repairs. This is especially true for inspection tools, which are light-years ahead of the traditional methods that have been in place for decades.
Thanks to these advanced inspection tools, we’ve made huge strides in preventative maintenance as well as in repair accuracy and longevity. After all, until recently, it was nearly impossible to find defects and fix them before they turned into costly — and sometimes dangerous — leaks.
The use of modern inspection tools is the number-one way we’re improving pipeline safety. And at INNOVATOR, we’re proud to be on the cutting edge of these inspection technologies. We’ve learned that an accurate, reliable inspection always improves the value of a repair; when we know exactly what we’re fixing, we can prevent future leaks and failures — instead of just blindly patching old ones.
Each project and pipeline is unique.
Because of this, we offer a wide array of inspection services that rely on various advanced technologies.
- Eddy Current Inspection
- Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI) Inspection
- Video Inspection
- Remote Field Testing (RFT) Inspection
- Airborne Ultrasonic Inspection
- Ultrasonic Internal Rotary Inspection System (IRIS)
- Magnetic Particle Inspection
- Liquid Penetrant Inspection
- Ultrasonic Thickness Measurement
- American Petroleum Institute (API) 510 and 570 Visual Services
These inspection tools may sound impressive and complex(and they truly are). However, INNOVATOR inspections are typically completed in a single visit to a customer’s site. That’s completely because of our expert, cross-trained crew members. They have knowledge and training that allows them to choose the right technology for each job. This way, our customers get the most accurate, high-value data about their pipelines. And they can also make decisions that help improve long-term reliability in their systems.
INNOVATOR pros are committed to keeping our customers leak-free. For us, that means making sure we’re always aware and ready when new technologies come down the pike. When we make innovative inspection technologies part of our business, you can rest assured that your business will be better, too!
