Discover the Pipe Scanner

360-degree pipeline scan in a flash

The Pipe Scanner allows you to perform comprehensive pipeline condition assessments in a flash. Whenever, wherever you want. It gives you rapid access to all the insights you seek into your water network’s current and future condition.

Inspection without demolition

This smart inspection tool is compact and easy to use. Inspect pipelines from the outside without cutting or demolition work. Perform high-quality condition assessments in a flash.

Do It Yourself (DIY)

With our smart inspection tools, you can manage your own condition assessments. Both the planning and the implementation. We use internal competition to challenge users to produce better assessments. Engagement guaranteed!

All insights within a day

Pipe Scanner measurement data is transmitted to Acquaint’s Cloud Environment automatically thanks to the Acquaint upload tool. The data is quickly analysed. You gain access to all the insights into a pipeline’s current condition within the day.

Thanks to the Pipe Scanner, operation and asset managers gain full control of inspections and condition assessments.

How the Pipe Scanner works

The Pipe Scanner allows you to assess the condition whenever and wherever you want.

A pipeline inspection with the Pipe Scanner

What does the Pipe Scanner inspect?

The Pipe Scanner allows you to perform external condition assessments of pipelines with diameter ≥ DN50. The Pipe Scanner is suitable for use with asbestos cement, cast iron, steel and HPDE/PVC pipelines.

What does the Pipe Scanner measure?

The Pipe Scanner assures you of comprehensive pipeline condition assessments. The Pipe Scanner measures wall thickness degradation, leaching, corrosion and deterioration due to H2S.

Improve measurement results through gamification

The more you measure, the more you know. We use internal competition to challenge technicians and field staff to produce better assessments. Engagement guaranteed!

Features

High measurement density

Pipe Scanner assessments have an accuracy of up to < 1mm.

Comprehensive condition assessment

The Pipe Scanner measures wall thickness, leaching, H2S and corrosion.

Gaming experience

Internal competition ensures motivated users and better measurement data.

Wireless transmission

Measurement data is transmitted to the cloud environment automatically thanks to the Acquaint upload tool.

Quick access to all the data

A dashboard provides you with all the measurement results and insights within the day.

Predict lifetimes

Use Pipe Scanner measurement data to predict the lifetime of pipelines.

Our Cloud Environment

Pipe Scanner measurement data can be transmitted to our Cloud Environment automatically. Algorithms and data models analyse the data and convert it into valuable insights.

Our advanced dashboard provides all the insights and overviews you need. Zoom in, zoom out. Focus on KPIs, set threshold values and generate reports.

We analyse the pipeline data using self-learning data models. The more (inspection) data, the more accurate these predictions can be.

You can use the data to set up inspection and maintenance schedules and monitor your water network’s performance.

What are our clients’ experiences?

Multiple water suppliers and water boards already became acquainted with the Pipe Scanner.

Thanks to the Pipe Scanner, we can perform our own condition assessments whenever we happen to have easy access to a pipeline.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any coating thickness/surface preparation requirements for the Pipe Scanner?

We have no issues with the Pipe Scanner measuring through layers of paint. A coating layer could be a problem, and therefore we advise removing it prior though measuring.

Can the Acquarius inspect pipelines while the pipeline is in operation?

Yes the Acquarius can inspect a pipeline while it is in operation

Does the Pipe Scanner require full circumference access to the pipe?

Preferably yes. But in practice, this is not always possible due to obstacles. In this case it is best to collect as much data as possible

Does the Pipe Scanner require the pipe to be full of water for readings?

No, the pipe does not have to be filled

How long does the exposed area of the pipe need to be?

For planned scans, we typically suggest 1 metre. For unplanned scans, it depends on the exposure itself. Every opportunity to add data aids in the improvement of your replacement model

Is the Pipe Scanner affected by sediment?

Internal sediment is no issue for the Pipe Scanner

How many scans could reasonably be performed in a day?

The number of scans depends on the accessibility and the distance between locations. We usually estimate 4-8 locations a day

What happens if there is an air pocket in the pipe?

Air pockets do not matter for the Pipe Scanner
