Olympus to Sell Creaform’s Pipecheck Analyze for Pipeline Integrity Assessment
LEVIS, QC, Canada, Jul 10, 2018 – Creaform, the worldwide leader in portable 3D measurement solutions and engineering services, announced today that Olympus Scientific Solutions Americas, a leading manufacturer of phased array flaw detectors for corrosion inspection, will now distribute Pipecheck Analyze, the most sophisticated NDT software on the market for pipeline integrity assessment. Pipecheck Analyze software solution supports a phased array (PA) and conventional ultrasonic testing (UT) data files for corrosion analysis and allows users to gain important information about the status of their components.
“We are very proud to partner with Olympus and to integrate OmniScan data with our code compliant corrosion software analysis. The capability of analyzing internal and external corrosion separately or together pushes pipeline assessment to another level,” says Steeves Roy, NDT Product Manager at Creaform.
With Pipecheck, NDT service companies and pipeline engineers can get more reliable and traceable analyses to ensure the safest assessment there is. Pipecheck to this day is the only trusted solution available that enables the identification of potential issues on both the inner and outer linings of pipes using both ultrasonic testing and 3D scanning, whether they be corrosion, dents or gouges in the metal.
Pipecheck can now process data from 3D scanners as well as data from ultrasonic testing devices, such as the Olympus’ OmniScan. Pipecheck provides true wall thickness assessment analysis based on the combination of various integrity assessment calculations. Adding Pipecheck to Olympus’ product offering will enable users to use phased array ultrasonic testing (PAUT) data, and combine that data with the advanced algorithms and strength calculations offered within Pipecheck, to create the most accurate and realistic damage evaluation of pipeline integrity.
