The Pathfinder was specifically designed for initial pipeline proving in lines with no pigging history and/or potential reductions in bore due to debris build up where an operator plans to initiate a pipeline pigging or ILI campaign

The Pathfinder is currently available from 4” up to 28” nominal size with ATEX certification available for 6” to 18”. With a maximum operating temperature of 70°C and a standard pressure of 200bar, it can be used in a wide range of applications and demanding environments. 

Typical Applications for Pathfinder Include

  • Pipeline proving
  • Measuring pipeline geometry and internal bore
  • Detecting and measuring ovality, dents, restrictions, reductions, debris, deport build-up and other anomalies
  • Debris mapping
  • Assessment for pipeline cleaning as part of an operator’s flow assurance management strategy

Key Benefits

  • Low risk, cost effective solution
  • Established track record
  • Easy to handle and use - specialised technicians not required infield
  • Fast track data analysis and reporting to support infield operations
  • Allows informed decisions to be made on the appropriate type and configurations of pigs to be deployed to clear or inspect the line
