The MEC-Combi PipeCrawler supports the inspection of smaller diameter subsea pipes, risers and caissons ranging from 6” to 16” for internal and external defects and wall loss.
The MEC-Combi PipeCrawler is a sophisticated self-crawling inspection tool designed to support the inspection and lifetime assessment of smaller diameter subsea assets like pipes, risers and caissons ranging from 6” to 16”, with deployment by ROV from a support vessel or by divers.
The MEC-Combi PipeCrawler combines the Magnetic Eddy Current fast scanning sensor array system with an Ultrasonic sensor unit to provide valuable data on the internal and external wall thickness. This advanced inspection system identifies localised defects and general wall loss. The fitted camera and light system supports a visualisation of the scan while the position encoder system enables its location on the inspection surface to be determined.
The MEC-Combi PipeCrawler enables the incorporation of selected advanced inspection techniques such as high resolution Ultrasonic mapping, Pulsed Eddy Current (PEC), laser triangulation system, camera system, etc to be used in combination to allow the different detection aspects of corrosion and general wall loss.
Key features of MEC-Combi PipeCrawler:
Key capabilities of MEC-Combi PipeCrawler:
Together with Innospection's comprehensive reporting software, accurate and reliable inspection results are generated in real time. The advanced colour condition mapping report provides analysis of the internal and external defects in term of size, severity of wall loss and locations of defects and other occurrences.
