The PipeScope 60-170 drill pipe diagnostics system is designed for electromagnetic express inspection (EMI) to identify lateral defects in drill pipe walls, identify defects associated with changes in the pipe wall thickness (internal and external general corrosion), and also to identify penetration defects. The inspection complies with the DS1 standard. The unit is portable and designed for field high-speed testing of drill pipes.

Additionally, the PipeScope 60-170 system provides the measurement of drill pipe diameters and ellipticities, and moreover concurrently with electromagnetic inspection. Also, a magnetizing coil can be used for magnetic particle testing in pipe bodies, upset ends and threads.

The PipeScope Viewer software displays an animated 3D model of a defective pipe. C-scan imaging allows determining the exact position of defects with angular and linear coordinates.

The program settings allow changing numerous test parameters, selecting the pipe screening criteria, selecting information to be displayed in automatically generated reports.

The PipeScope viewer software allows displaying C-scans using both color gradients and 3D surfaces. The Pipescope 60-170 has a stop-on-defect function. It also provides demagnetization of drill pipes both in the course of diagnostics and independently of the diagnostic process.
