key advantages

  • Pipe steel grade determination without costly excavation
  • Completion of pipeline data records
  • Compliance to regulations
  • Lifetime integrity management, supported by full recording of the inspection raw data
  • High quality service with certified processes (API 1163), personnel qualification (ASNT) and equipment (CE, ATEX)
  • High availability and a wide range of proven tool configurations addressing individual operational pipeline requirements

The Solution

The service uses a novel inline inspection technology capable of continuously identifying and differentiating Pipe Steel Grade while significantly reducing risk and effort. The data results of the novel RoMat service comply very precisely to the required field verification in accordance to API 1163.
