TIC LLC has developed an alternative to the traditional methods of pipeline inspection - the Non-contact Magnetometric Scanners (NMS) for non-contact inspection of underground and subsea steel pipelines.
We offer a different approach to inspection, focusing on safety first. It’s good to know about each small scratch and minor flaw, but from a more practical point of view, it’s better to know the basics - is this section of a pipeline in a satisfactory condition? Does it need any immediate repairs? Can we afford to postpone it for 2-3 years? And we know it's imperative that you learn this fast, with no invasive procedures, and minimal disruption to the flow.
Most of the advantages are due to one reason – WE DON'T NEED TO TOUCH. The inspection is executed from the surface, at a distance of up to 10 diameters of the pipe (for example, if you have a pipe of 50 cm diameter, we can be 5 meters above, left or right from it). The speed of the inspection is limited only by the walking speed of the person conducting the trace.
What we offer is CONTACTLESS inspection.
