Deformation (DEF)

The high resolution deformation (DEF) tool provides pipeline operators with an easy and efficient way to detect minute bore reductions down to the slightest change in the pipeline’s internal diameter. The data produced is also useful for dent strain calculations, which help determine anomaly severity beyond simple dent depth. In combination with other technologies in a complete Multiple Dataset Platform, the DEF tool also plays an important role in detecting mechanical damage.
