Pipeline Engineering's PECAT™ Gets Animated

(May 14th 2013)

RICHMOND, UK – Pipeline Engineering, a brand of CIRCOR Energy, has created an animated video demonstrating the use and benefits of the PECAT™ pipeline inspection tool. This animation will support the team in winning additional projects and reinforce our reputation in the industry for development of bespoke and ground-breaking technology to support pipeline infrastructure. 

PECAT™ is fully operational and has now been successfully run in several pipelines worldwide.

Used to measure the quantity and location of wax, scale or foreign materials present in pipelines, as well as provide information regarding pipeline internal geometry (such as ovality, dents), temperature and differential pressures, PECAT™ achieves this during just one run through a pipeline.

PECAT™ is particularly beneficial when establishing whether a pipeline is clean enough for an effective inline inspection to be carried out. It is also used during operational pipeline cleaning and prior to pipeline decommissioning. 

Following a two year certification program, PECAT™ has received its full Type Approval ATEX 94/9/EC Compliance Certificate from Sira Certification.  This involved detailed analysis of the PECAT™ tool design to establish its compliance with all relevant safety standards, as well as a full review of relevant supporting quality systems and documentation. As part of this process Pipeline Engineering also received the Quality Assurance Notice of Conformity with EIC 80079-34 covering the manufacture and assembly of ATEX certified products.

The animation is posted on the CIRCOR Energy website as well as YouTube.  To watch, click on the following link: http://www.circorenergy.com/support/videos.php
