The EMPIT technique is designed for the inspection of unpiggable pipelines

Electromagnetic Pipeline Testing GmbH is a privately owned company, which offers pipeline operators a verified solution for the inspection of unpiggable pipelines.

The EMPIT technique is designed for the inspection of unpiggable pipelines

Benefits

01No direct access to the pipeline through aboveground inspection required

02No launch traps required

03No special preparations such as cleaning of the pipeline required

04No change of production mode of the pipeline during survey

05Detection of defects in the inner an outer pipe wall

06Detection & differentiation of metal loss and coating defects

07Detection of corrosion, dents, blisters, gouges and girth welds

08Sizing of defects

09Depth of Cover measurements and exact localization of pipeline

10Right of Way inspection

11Worldwide references & certification of inspection abilities

12Safe and cost-effective


Features detected through EMPIT technique 

Defects detected through EMPIT technique

Due to recent improvements the EMPIT technique became more productive and precise. In fact, we have managed to decrease our response threshold (minimum peak metal loss detection) while simultaneously becoming more productive and price-efficient. 

Examples of features detected with the EMPIT inspection technique:
