Applus RTD will showcase its latest innovative technology the RTD DTI Trekscan at the 10th Pipeline Technology Conference.

The RTD DTI Trekscan is the first free-floating inspection tool designed to traverse back-to-back one-dimensional (1D) bends, with an optimum speed of one meter per second (2.2 mph). It can run in pipelines previously considered to be ‘unpiggable’. The bi-directional tool measures the return echoes of a transmitted ultrasound beam. The amount of time it takes to receive an echo provides highly accurate information on the remaining wall and enables detection and sizing of metal loss anomalies. The standard configuration of RTD DTI Trekscan comes in 6” and 8” sizes. It is also extremely lightweight – 15 kilograms (33 lbs) – and its maximum operating temperature is 40 °C (104 °F).

The report from this new system provides operators with ranked and screened ultrasonic survey data that will assist them with maintenance planning for the examined pipeline segments.
