Analyzing defects using 3D imaging

3d Toolbox

The 3D Toolbox is a complete 3D structured light measurement system for inspecting oil and gas infrastructure.  The 3D Toolbox is used for the non-destructive evaluation (NDE) method for gathering pipeline feature or defect measurements (corrosion, gouges, dents, etc.).  The defect assessment software integrates ASME B31G, RSTRENG, ASME B31.4 and ASME B31.8 for quick decision making.  The 3D Toolbox is ruggedized (IP67) and using it is as simple as point.click.done.

Ruggedized 3D Camera

The 3D Toolbox is ruggedized to meet the demands of operating the system in harsh environments.  The level of ingress protection, or IP rating is IP67:  no ingress of dust and the ability to withstand submersion in three feet (on meter) of water for a minimum of thirty minutes.  In addition, the 3D Toolbox survives a drop of three feet (one meter) onto concrete:  this exceeds the maximum IK rating of 10 for drop test protection.  With an operating temperature that ranges from 0F (-15C) to 110F (40C), the 3D Toolbox is ready for the most difficult jobs.

Seikowave Software

Generate fitness-for-service test reports in minutes with the 3D Toolbox.  The end-to-end software solution includes: 3D image capture, defect analysis, and report generation.  The analysis and reports comply with ASME and CSA requirements for level one and level two assessment.  Output data files enable level three assessment.

3d Toolbox

The 3D Toolbox is a complete measurement system for inspecting oil and gas infrastructure. It uses real-time measurements and algorithms to process accurate measurements of 3D objects and surfaces.

An article describing the accuracy of 3D Toolbox was included in the March 2014 issue of the magazine “Pipelines International”.  The article describes how the 3D Toolbox performed in comparison to traditional measuring methods as well as to a coordinate measuring machine.


Innovation of Year Award

March 10th, 2014

Seikowave was recognized for its impact on corrosion control at the NACE Corrosion Conference held in San Antonio this year. Seikowave received an “ Innovation of the Year Award,”.  This award recognizes technological developments that have made innovative improvements to all aspects of corrosion protection.
