Spectrum Laser Scanning with Handyscan and Pipecheck
Increased accuracy and repeatability compared to traditional measurements methods such as pit gauge, UT probes and single-line lasers.
Spectrum uses the Handyscan 3D laser scanner and the Pipecheck data acquisition/analysis software for fast, reliable and accurate pipeline inspections.
Using triangulation and binocular vision, the Handyscan 3D scanner can self-position itself to a unique dynamic referencing system on the pipeline, which ensures high measurement repeatability and accuracy. The resulting 3D scan is perfectly scaled to be representative of the real geometry and allows easy visualization of surface defects.
Advantages of the Handyscan 3D laser scanners include:
Pipecheck is a single software data acquisition and analysis platform addressing both pipeline external corrosion and pipeline mechanical damage. The external corrosion module offers very fast and reliable data processing that generates instant, on-site results. The mechanical damage module features numerous key functionalities that increase dent understanding and facilitate decision making, with instant results generated on site.
Key functionalities include:
