Pipe and Pipeline Inspection

  • TesTex is your trusted partner for comprehensive pipeline scanning services, specializing in above-ground, uninsulated piping. Our cutting-edge scanning solutions effortlessly penetrate painted or coated piping, ensuring accurate evaluations. To accomplish this, we harness the power of the state-of-the-art Triton II LFET System, built upon TesTex’s proprietary Low Frequency Electromagnetic Technique (LFET).

    With LFET technology at our disposal, TesTex achieves rapid scanning of piping areas, exceeding 90% coverage with exceptional efficiency. The versatile Triton II serves as both a quantitative tool and a rapid screening tool, offering unparalleled flexibility. In screening mode, we employ A-Scan Ultrasonics to validate flaw indications with precision. Our advanced technology seamlessly caters to both magnetic and non-magnetic piping, including the testing of cast iron and other cast materials.

    Experience the reliability and accuracy of TesTex’s pipeline scanning services. Our commitment to excellence, coupled with the application of cutting-edge LFET technology through the Triton II system, guarantees thorough evaluations that surpass industry standards.

  • TesTex introduces the Line CAT, and the Line CAT Plus an advanced automated scanning rig revolutionizing inspections for longer pipe runs. Built upon the principles of LFET, this cutting-edge system showcases TesTex’s commitment to precision and efficiency. Specifically designed to swiftly and accurately scan piping with a diameter of 6″ or greater, the Line CAT line of products offers unparalleled capabilities.

    Operating from the outer diameter (OD) of the pipe, both Line CAT products conducts inspections with remarkable speed and accuracy. Its state-of-the-art design enables seamless scanning of extensive pipelines, ensuring comprehensive evaluations. Equipped with advanced technology and guided by LFET principles, the Line CAT guarantees reliable and thorough inspections for a wide range of applications.

    Choose the Line CAT or the Line CAT Plus from TesTex for unmatched performance, efficiency, and accuracy in inspecting longer pipe runs. Our automated scanning rig sets the new standard in pipeline inspection, providing the confidence and assurance you need.
