- Accurate measurement of steel strength (yield and tensile strength)
- Optimization of the pipeline's operating pressure
- Maximization of efficiency by avoiding unnecessary excavations
- Each joint is characterized, extending the asset's life cycle
- Lifetime integrity management, supported by full recording of the inspection raw data
- High quality service following 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
By means of a single in-line inspection, the RoMat PGS in-line high-resolution service provides unique information along the entire pipeline, thus ensuring traceable, verifiable, complete, and reliable pipe records. ROSEN’s innovative in-line inspection service for material strength categorization provides measurement of strength properties and accurate determination of pipe grade for every single pipe within the examined pipe section.
After the high-resolution RoMat PGS Inline Service for Pipes 2015 was awarded the Global Pipeline Award of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, patent applications were also filed in Europe, the US and Canada.
This service provides a sequential "pipeline DNA" breakup, delivering populations based on diameter, wall thickness, strength and pipe length. It also significantly reduces costs associated with obtaining missing pipeline design and record requirements. A significant benefit of the RoMat PGS service is that it can be applied as part of a standard MFL-based ILI, avoiding the need for additional inspection runs. When neccessary, the data on pipe properties can already be collected during a previously-scheduled inspection, and evaluation can be deferred to a later date.
The data on pipe properties can already be collected during a previously-scheduled inspection, and evaluated at a later date only when needed or when budget allows.
THE SERVICE PROVIDES
- Creation of populations based on diameter, wall strength and pipe length
