Guided Wave Services 

Guided Wave is an advanced NDE technique providing rapid screening of an in-service pipeline. Capable of detecting internal or external defects, the inspection is achieved from a single location as ultrasonic guided waves travel in both directions along the pipe. This allows difficult access areas to be scanned remotely in a single pass.

How Guided Wave Reduces Cost:

  • Reducing pipeline excavations

  • Enabling inspection of piping under roads and cased crossings

  • Extensive insulation removal is not required

  • Only a single point of access required to rack piping

  • Minimal removal of external coating
