ECAT uses high-powered magnets to create a magnetic field within a pipeline. The patented technology then calculates the rate and location of the field loss during the inspection. The magnetic waves travel through structurally weak areas of the pipe at a faster rate and allow for predictions to be made on the remaining life of the pipe.

ECAT services can be used for a targeted “spot” check or to assess the condition of a long distance of metallic pipeline. This non-destructive assessment process provides results for the entire diameter of the pipe, requires minimal site preparation and can be used on any metallic pipe with a diameter of 8 inches or greater. 214.377.5300, www.ppic.com
