Laser Ovality Measurement Software Approved By WRc

September 2013, Vol. 68 No. 9

Buried pipe installers, rehab contractors and owners now have a WRc Approved option for laser ovality measurement. WinCan LaserScan software, distributed in North and South America exclusively through Pipeline Analytics, is now WRc Approved per PT/342/0713.

To earn the approval, the software had to demonstrate ovality measurement to within +/-1 percent accuracy under several combinations of pipe size, material and deflection.

The approval has been granted for an initial period of five years, after which it will be renewed periodically.

WinCan transforms raw inspection data into the intelligence municipalities and contractors need to make critical maintenance decisions. The software’s measurement tools help quantify defects, and sophisticated search capabilities filter observations by any combination of criteria. Its report generator automatically summarizes inspection findings using a standard or user-defined template. Native support for GIS mapping, side-scanning and 3D are among WinCan’s most innovative features. 877.626.8386, pipelineanalytics.com
