NDT Solutions - Pipecheck – Pipeline Integrity Assessment Software

PipeCheck represents an innovative, intuitive and highly effective solution for both pipeline external corrosion and pipeline mechanical damage assessment and is the best alternative on the market to traditional NDT methods.

PipeCheck for pipeline external corrosion assessment: In order to avoid plumbing failures, inspections are conducted for the assessment of the state of tube degradation and the remaining life time.

External corrosion module: The pipe external corrosion module offers fast, efficient and simplified data processing able to generate results instantly.

The data are presented in Excel, and provide greater accuracy and repeatability than traditional measurement methods, such as ultrasound probing (UT) or line lasers.

Key Features:

  • Automatically-applied interaction rules.
  • 3D and 2D color mapping with river-bottom path overlay.
  • 2D section generation in both axis.
  • Worst-case-profile generated for all corrosion features.
  • Estimated burst pressure calculation based on ASME B31G code (B31G, B31G Modified and Effective Area methods).
  • Corrosion depth measurement, dimensions and position on the pipe.
  • “Depth-on-the-fly”: simply drag the mouse over point to obtain local corrosion depth measurement.
  • Gouge and redressed gouge inspection.
  • Point-to-point distance measurement directly in the 3D model.


  • Handyscan 3D™ laser scanners can be easily transferred.
  • The scanner is automatically placed in the tube. Encoders or bulky mechanical scanners are not needed.
  • The resulting dynamic link between the pipe and the scanner maintains the accuracy and resolution in any vibratory field.
  • The quality of the data collected can be verified in real time and the results are generated within minutes.
  • The scanner design and the automatically generated reports guarantee the repeatability of the results.
  • The experience of the person performing the inspection has no effect on the process of scanning and analysis.
  • Complies with ASME B31G code regulations.

PipeCheck for pipeline mechanical damage assessment: Functioning pipes should be inspected on site in order to assess the extent of dents or cracks and estimate the remaining life time. In addition to ensuring the integrity of the pipe network, it is necessary to keep costs as low as possible.

3D inspection using phase controlled EMAT antennas

Inspection is necessary in order to assess the degree of degradation and the remaining lifetime of structures and complex components, such as dovetails, nozzles, feeding tubes, pipelines etc. To facilitate this complicated procedure, the industry typically uses the method of inspection using phase controlled EMAT antennas.

More specifically, the scanner is automatically placed on the part that needs to be inspected.  Using triangulation and binocular vision, the Handyscan 3D™ scanner can guarantee high repeatability and measurement accuracy of the 3D data.

CREAFORM 3D offers two 3D laser scanners to choose from depending on the level of precision required by the inspection.

Turbine Inspection

Inspection is necessary in order to assess the degree of degradation and the remaining lifetime of complex components. Compared to traditional measurement methods, Handyscan 3D™ scanners help save a considerable amount of time on turbine inspection.

  • Dassault (CATIA V5, SolidWorks),
  • PTC (Pro / Engineer),
  • Siemens (NX and Solid Edge),
  • Autodesk (Inventor, Alias, 3ds Max, Maya and Softimage).


  • TRUaccuracy: TRUaccuracy Technology: Handyscan 3D™ offers high precision 3D scanning in real operating conditions.
  • Automatic positioning: Handyscan 3D™ scanners are data acquisition systems that simultaneously incorporate their own positioning system. This means that there is no need for a tracking or positioning device externally.
  • The system uses optical reflectors in order to create a referral "fixed" system to the object in question. The user can move the object as desired during the scan session, so that changes in the environment, such as vibration and stability, in no way affect the quality and accuracy of data acquisition.
  • Quick Calibration: The scanner can be calibrated as often as necessary (every day or before a new scan session). Scanner calibration takes about 2 to 3 minutes and ensures optimum performance at all times.
