Pipe Inspection

Radar & ultrasound technology can be used to identify cracks, deformations and corrosion in pipes. We are developing the hardware, software and advanced signal processing techniques to provide accurate real-time assessment of pipe condition.

The Equanostic radar and ultrasound sensors are specially designed based on experience gained in offshore well inspection. Finely tuned to the water pipe environment, and in combination with bespoke processing and analysis, they let you see beyond the surface.

The system resolution gives you detailed knowledge of the location and material condition for every inch of your pipe. This precision makes it possible to monitor weak points and predict the need for maintenance.

The Equanostic analysis algorithms automate the processing of sensor data, directly outputting a report which summarizes the pipeline condition and points out segments that require attention.

Key features:
  • Ultrasound sensor
  • Radar antenna
  • Camera
  • Self-contained sensor head
Critical measurements:
  • 195-284 mm pipe inner diameter (extendable on request)
  • 90 m range
The inspection system integrates seamlessly with Gemini VA, the market-leading solution for management and documentation of water and sewage networks by Volue.

Pipeline inspection data are represented by 1D and 2D plots in the Equanostic graphical user interface (GUI). The visualization gives access from top-level analysis results and all the way down to sensor data frame details. The corresponding camera stream is also available.

The GUI also serves as robot operator interface, controlling the robot motion in the pipe. Realtime robot operation signals are also available.


Integrate it with your solution

We continuously improve the pipeline inspection system. It can be integrated with your in-house solutions or even third-party software. Please let us know how we can make it the best inspection system for you.
