PIT (Pipeline Inspection Tool)

In order to establish the integrity of aging pipelines, ultrasonic pigs may be used. In difficult scenarios such as offloading lines and open risers, only single-sided access is available, often without pig launch and receiving traps.


Applus RTD has developed cable-operated ultrasonic pigs.
