GEOMETRY ASSESSMENT

Identification of anomalies in the geometry of the pipeline. Our customers use Geometry Assessment for pipelines, which have bad or incomplete documentation.

Information collected by EMPIT is used to identify the location and size of various restrictions in the line, thus allowing our clients to make informed decisions: For example, whether to proceed with feasibility studies and reconstruction of pipelines in order to make them piggable. Or to proceed with EMPIT’s time and money saving inspection services, including integrity and coating inspection solutions.
