Detection of axial cracks in cast iron pipes using ultrasonic guided waves

Pure Technologies is a world leader in the development and application of innovative technologies for inspection, monitoring and management of physical infrastructure including water and hydrocarbon pipelines, buildings and bridges. Over the years, Pure Technologies has developed innovative, proprietary and patented technologies to provide infrastructure owners with comprehensive, state-of-the-art information. For the inspection of large diameter water pipelines, Pure Technologies has developed a platform named PipeDiver. It can be effectively deployed for long inspections on several types of pipe to determine baseline condition. Pure Technologies is interested in adding new capabilities to the PipeDiver such as the detection of axial in various configurations including bell-and-spigot joints.
