Having spent many years overcoming the challenges of getting Pipe
Inspection Vehicles into pipes and traversing considerable distances,
it was a natural progression to be able to offer a broader range
of services that would enable Clients to better assess the structural
condition of their assets.
For a number of years we have been mounting specialised NDT probes
on to PIVs to carry out wall thickness testing on cast iron,
steel and HDPE pipes from the inside of pipes and our dive teams
have carried out external pipe testing using the same technology
with the addition of flux leakage technology on the outside of pipes
to assess the condition of cast pipes, with a good level of success.
Our recent conversion to Fibre Optic cabling has enabled us to
significantly expanded on the range of NDT services for concrete
pipes that now include depth of concrete cover over re-bar, level
of re-bar deterioration, concrete integrity and concrete hardness
testing to EN 12504-Q and EN 31791 standard.
We now utilise higher frequency thickness gauges that determine
pipe wall condition as well as pipe wall thickness.
