Identifying pipeline threats is the first step in pipeline safety. That includes detecting interactive threats — two or more threats that coincide in a pipe segment and pose a greater threat combined than either would be on its own. Because these “coincident threats” can result in a greater likelihood of failure than that due to either threat individually, accurate detection is critical.

The MDS platform is unsurpassed in its ability to detect, characterize, and size interacting threats to pipeline integrity, such as mechanical damage. Because it integrates multiple in-line inspection (ILI) technologies on a single platform, MDS overcomes the threat detection gaps of single magnetic flux leakage (MFL) based tools, reduces risk, increases the accuracy of results and provides comprehensive information about features previously undetected by other ILI tools.

MDS can perform a complete inspection of the pipe body and long seam in one pass, reducing operational risks and costs and eliminating unnecessary excavations. Data from all collected ILI technologies are analyzed in a single software package to accurately detect, characterize and size individual and interacting threats alike. The market’s most complete inspection platform, MDS allows for the innovative TDW prioritization process by leveraging all datasets to characterize interacting threats.

Key Features

  • Helps provide pipe joint classification for material properties verification
  • Three unique magnetic technologies (Axial MFL, SpirALL MFL, and residual or low field MFL) identify threats not detected by Axial MFL alone

Sizes

  • 6-inch through 30-inch

Technologies

Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL)

Detects, identifies and sizes axially oriented metal loss and planar anomalies.

SpirALL® MFL (SMFL)

Detects, identifies and sizes axially oriented metal loss and planar anomalies.

XYZ Mapping (XYZ)

Measures pipe centerline, provides highly accurate coordinates for all reported features, and enables bending strain analysis.

Deformation (DEF)

Detects, identifies and sizes bore changes such as dents, ovalities, expansions and wrinkles.

Low Field MFL (LFM)

Identifies material property changes resulting from manufacture, milling or mechanical working.
