Even Pipelines Are Happy When PICA Is On The Job

Pipeline Inspection and Condition Analysis (PICA) Corporation is currently performing an inspection of 4 miles of 66-inch cement and steel cylinder lined PCCP pipe in southern California. To test the resolution of PICA’s brand new In-Line Inspection Tool, the customer embedded some small button magnets in the cement lining, and cemented over them so that PICA didn’t know they were there.

The photo shows the pattern made by the magnets, and the incredible resolution of the tool – as well as the customer’s great sense of humour!

A subsidiary of Russell NDE, PICA offers in-line inspection tool services to the water and wastewater industries. The parent company designs and manufactures non-destructive evaluation equipment under various brands, and distributes NDE equipment for high-quality manufacturers.

PICA Corporation, (800) 661-0127 (U.S.), (780) 468-6800 (Canada-Headquarters), picacopr.com
