UXD Inline Inspection Tools

Learn about the next generation UPP Pipeline Inspection tools and their features.

  • Conventional

    Our fleet of UXD MFL Caliper tools is designed to be operated conventionally in pipelines with no production interruption. This is achieved using a highly collapsible design, allowing navigation through obstructions and tight ID restrictions that other tools have troubles with. Additionally, our design produces very low drag and allows a large range of pressures and flows to be used. The reduced length means our tool can be used in the majority of pig launching and receiving barrels saving time and money on costly modifications.

  • Bidirectional

    If faced with the need of inspecting an "un-piggable" pipeline or select High Consequence areas such as a river or road crossing, United Pacific bidirectional inspection service is the answer. We utilize the same proven UXD MFL/IMU technology used in our conventional inline inspections to provide fast, reliable, cost-effective data. Additionally, with access to 4 wire-line units, we are available when you are!

  • Modular

    United Pacific understands that not every pipeline can be inspected the same way. That is why we have designed all of our tools to be modular. This allows our tools to be run independently of each other and in multiple configurations. Stand-alone Caliper, IMU, MFL, and UPSCAN are all possible with the UXD system.

  • Triaxial Sensors

    Our three-axis MFL sensor technology uses axial, radial, and circumferential data. This enhancement, combined with our proprietary OMNI Software Solutions, provides our data analysis with the tools for superior sizing estimation regarding both internal and external corrosion detection.

  • Pipeline Mapping

    Using our integrated UXD IMU, our technology “maps” the entire pipeline and provides pinpoint defect location accuracy (sub-meter accuracy when supplied with GPS control points). Exact pipeline anomaly locations provide immediate cost savings by eliminating unnecessary excavations due to misinterpreted dig sheets. High strain areas, geotechnical hazards, and pipeline movement can all be identified using the UXD IMU.


Software Solutions and Services

Data Comparison

Our OMNI software is capable of a complete run to run comparisons of MFL, IMU, and Caliper Data. This service can be performed in both signal and box matching comparisons and is available in any custom report layout

Strain Calculation

Full strain calculation is available using our OMNI software and a combination of our UXD IMU and Caliper technologies. We can provide a custom report detailing dent strain values in accordance with ASME, CSA and API regulation as well, full bending strain analysis which provides pipeline movement, bend detection, and size

A.I. Machine Learning

Fully integrated machine learning Software allows continuous learning from each set of direct measurement digs, scans, and pull tests. This advantage allows us to reduce human error and advance the repeatability of our signal interpretation.
