Novitech Launches its New 10″ Version 10 Tool

Novitech Launches its new 10NPS Version 10 Micron ILI tool.

This tool has a total of 1,288 sensors that include AMFL + CMFL+ Geometry and IDD.

With an industry leading combined sampling density of over 2,000 per square inch.

Detection and sizing of very small pin holes and many different forms of cracking in a single run is now possible.

Novitech and Xcel Energy Present a Paper on CSCC

Novitech and Xcel Energy present a paper on the Detection and Sizing of Circumferentially Oriented Stress Corrosion Cracking (CSCC) Using Axially Oriented Magnetic Flux Leakage Inspection at PPIM in Houston.

This paper was based 6” pull testing on pipe know to have CSCC.

Novitech’s 8″ Micron CMFL Tool

Novitech Displays it new 8” CMFL tool at PPIM in Houston. This state of the art CMFL tool has 576 primary sensors and can used run AMFL, Geometry, IDD and IMU modules.

The version 10 of this 8” tool brings the total number of sensors on board to 992. All these systems together can reach a sampling density up to 2,000 per square inch.

First 8″ CMFL Tool to Negotiate Five Back to Back 1.5D Bends

The new Novitech Micron Circumferential MFL tools (starting at 8″) will be able to negotiate multiple 1.5D bends with no separation between them.

Differential pressures in single bends will remain near neutral to that of straight pipe. In multiple bends the differential pressure will drop to approximately 50% of the pressure in straight pipe.

Novitech Micron ILI Axial Pinhole Detection

Novitech’s industry leading Micron ILI technology can detect pinhole corrosion as small as 0.039” (1 mm) in diameter.

Our Axial MFL tools have 40 primary sensors per diameter inch (2.0 mm spacing). Our electronics can sample 640 times per square inch at velocities up to 8.8 mph (4 M/S). 

Novitech Completes 165 mile Run

Novitech successfully completes a 165 mile long 6″ products line, using our new Micron CMFL and Geometry tool. Collecting 91 GB of data in this 40 hour long run. 

Thanks to everyone at Sinclair Transportation Company, and Campos EPC, for making this another successful ILI project.
