Technologies of cleaning and in-line inspection of gas mains
Keywords:in-line inspection; technical diagnostics of gas mains; technical monitoring and nondestructive testing of gas mains.
In-line inspection of pipe metal is an extremely important component of technical diagnostics of gas mains. The main
objective of inspection is determining the actual technical condition of gas pipeline and its equipment with subsequent repair of detected defects to ensure reliable operation of the facility. Untimely diagnostics and repair operations lead to higher failure rate and emergencies. Regular diagnostics makes it possible to determine effectively the technical condition and allows establishing the expediency of further operation and recommendations for the elimination of detected defects.
