A Comprehensive Survey Tool for Pipeline Integrity
The Hexcorder PRO is a versatile and comprehensive survey kit designed specifically for corrosion professionals, technicians & Surveyor’s. This tool is a game-changer in pipeline integrity, offering a unique combination of features that allow for efficient and effective data collection.
One of the standout features of the Hexcorder PRO is its ability to perform four distinct types of surveys simultaneously: Close Interval Survey (CIPS), Direct Current Voltage Gradient (DCVG), ACVG (Alternating Current Voltage Gradient), and GIS mapping. This multi-functionality not only streamlines the survey process but also supplies a more holistic view of pipeline integrity.
The Close Interval Survey (CIPS) and Direct Current Voltage Gradient (DCVG) are particularly noteworthy. CIPS is a method used to evaluate the level of Cathodic Protection (CP), a technique used to control the corrosion of a metal surface. On the other hand, DCVG is a technique used to evaluate the pipeline’s coating condition. By performing these surveys simultaneously, the Hexcorder PRO allows users to correlate cathodic protection data with coating integrity data, enabling them to better prioritize remediation efforts.
The Hexcorder PRO also offers flexibility in its setup. Users have the choice between a hip pack or a backpack setup, depending on the nature and duration of their survey. The hip pack is ideal for short surveys or urban areas, while the backpack is designed for long, cross-country surveys.
Another key feature of the Hexcorder PRO is its integrated GPS. This feature allows for precise location data to be collected during the survey, which can then be imported into mapping software for further analysis. This is particularly useful in supporting pipeline integrity, as it allows for accurate tracking and monitoring of pipeline conditions.
The Hexcorder PRO is not just about functionality; it also prioritizes user experience. It features a large, rugged Mil Spec touchscreen tablet user interface, which supports multiple languages and allows users to view any two of five available screens: Table, Graph, Map, Bird’s Eye, and Analog Gauge. This makes the survey process more intuitive and user-friendly.
The Hexcorder PRO is a robust and versatile tool for conducting surveys related to pipeline integrity. Its ability to perform multiple surveys simultaneously, coupled with its user-friendly interface and comprehensive features, and added options and extras makes it an invaluable asset in the field of corrosion protection survey and pipeline management.
