NMS-Subsea and NMS-dive are systems, invented by TIC specialists, for detecting subsea pipelines defects without physically contacting the pipeline. This non-contact technique enables a system to accurately conduct a pipeline inspection without the need for any preparation of the pipeline or the need of pig launchers or receivers. Additionally, the inspection can be executed in a relatively shorter time and at a lower cost.
NMS-Subsea is designed to be mounted on an ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) for non-contact inspection of the oil, gas and water pipelines at the depth up to 300 m.
NMS-Dive was developed as a diver-operated device for the inspection of shallow water pipelines up to 40 m depth.
NMS-Subsea-Surface is a system for sub-contact (without insulation removal) location of stress concentrators, related to flaws, designed for inspection of pipelines in pits and tank walls.
The sophisticated software allows express-analysis of the data.
TIC specialists have developed diver-operated trace-locator to identify a pipeline in case of buried shallow water pipes.
NMS-dive is also operated by a diver. Registration and recording of the magnetic field values on the pipeline is done automatically into the flash-memory of the device, while the operator moves along the axis of the pipeline.
