Pipeline Testing

Customer Case

The customer wants to test pipelines for corrosion and cracks. They intend to use a small robot which they can send into the pipeline. This robot's purpose is to test the pipe by ultrasound and magnetic field for cracks, corrosion and other damage. The customer is using 2 different types of transducers, one for ultrasound and one for the magnetic field. They are sending a pulse with a magnetic field generator, capturing the received signal, rotating the transducer 1/2 degree and then sending another pulse and capturing signal again. After a complete 360 degree rotation, they will need to perform calculations on the data to get the results of the magnetic test. The same process is repeated for the ultrasound testing.

GaGe Case Solution

They are looking for small imperfections, so we suggested a CompuScope 12100. With its 12-bit resolution, multiple input ranges, fast signal capture and fast PCI data transfer, the CompuScope 12100 was exactly what they needed.
