PICA finds another leak in heating water pipe
A casino in Ontario had a leak somewhere in a 12" district heating line. In order to find the leak but keep costs to a minimum they sought out PICA and their Recon+ acoustic sphere. The Recon+ has INGU technology inside which measures many parameters, including leak noise.

Is CUI eating your lunch and your pipes?
Are you staying on top of the fight against CUI? Each year, Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI) goes undetected on pipe, towers, storage tanks and vessels, leading to millions of dollars worth of damage when inevitable failures and breakages occur. As one of the most pervasive and difficult issues facing today’s process piping, CUI presents an immense amount of risk both from a safety and financial aspect if left undetected. Thankfully, using tools like Russell NDE’s bracelet probe and Eddy Current technology, getting an accurate view of the state of your pipes makes it easy to detect early signs of corrosion and stop the spread before extensive damage has the chance to set in. Below, we’ll explore some of the biggest risk factors for CUI, as well as provide a brief overview as to how both our bracelet probe and eddy current technology work. Read on to learn more
Are you in need of innovative solutions that allow you to safely and efficiently survey concrete slabs and conduct an analysis of subsurface defects and voids? Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is a cost-effective way of conducting scans and imaging, as well as identifying hidden hazards, such as power lines, heating tubes, rebar and more. Despite being one of the more recent additions to the NDT field, GPR offers exceptional performance on concrete structures without destroying them, and without disrupting your overall operation. As a leading provider and developer of NDT technology, Russell NDE is proud to utilize NDE technology in our evaluation services. Learn more about the benefits of GPR and how it works below!
Inspection of pipelines from 3" to 78"
Are you up to date on the inspection and maintenance of your pipelines? Routine in-line inspection of pipelines is a crucial part of protecting against leaks, breaks and failures, as well as ensuring the optimal performance of your daily operations. While exterior examination can reveal immediate concerns such as areas of corrosion and dents, internal inspections help to reveal hidden dangers by providing a clear evaluation of the state of your pipes and allowing you to take action before major incidences occur. As a world leader in the pipeline inspection industry, Russell NDE manufactures award-winning products, including our SeeSnake tools, that make the inspection of cement-lined, PE lined, epoxy and other kinds of lined pipelines easy.
