Evolution of Ultrasonic Inline Inspection

This whitepaper explores technological advances that have been made to support ILI using ultrasonic technology, to include hardware and inspection improvements, it also examines the role ultrasonic modeling plays to support and optimize inspection results.

Guaranteeing the safe operational conditions of pipelines is paramount to any integrity management program. Intelligent inline inspection (ILI) systems are widely used throughout the industry to guarantee such safe operations. ILI tools record data while travelling through the entire pipeline from launcher to receiver. Ultrasonic technology (UT) is the most accurate and reliable iteration of ILI technology available today.
