Advanced Pipeline Inspection Tool Design
Our Bread and Butter
From working within the Oil & Gas industry D3 specialize in the mechanical design of pipeline inspection tools.
D3 is home to over 250 years of combined experience in PIG design and have helped a number of clients develop a wide range of tools using various sensor technologies, such as Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL) and Electro-Magnetic Acoustic Transducers (EMAT) as well as many others ranging from 6 to 56” diameters. We know what to look out for in PIG design having experienced a number of challenging projects in the In-Line Inspection industry including:
· Vertical Launch
· Wye Passing
· Clapper Valve Protection
· High Line Pressure
· Tight Bend Radii
· Onshore and Offshore Launch/Receive
· High Flow-rate
D3 have also supported the operation and maintenance of PIGs by designing specialist handling equipment such as launchers and manipulator frames, all of which is done to a strict quality in accordance with the relevant codes and standards.
