Applications

XWMs are a perfect solution to optimize pipeline performance and assess the condition of challenging and hard-to-reach pipelines. They are cost-effective and easy to deploy during operations. Therefore XWMs are highly suitable for frequent use giving an early stage indication of irregularities in the pipe.

Examples of applications:

  • Determine piggability
  • Detect:
    • wax deposition
    • dents
    • (magnetic) debris
    • illegal hot taps
    • air / gas pockets
    • leaks (Q2 2017)
  • Optimize flow hydraulics in single or multiphase fluids
  • Optimize mixing processes of multiphase fluids
  • Monitoring vibrations in non-metallic pipes
  • Continuous measurements of pressure and temperature over the total pipe length
  • Determine pipeline isometrics
