Spectrum Structured Light Scanning with 3D Toolbox
Structured Light is a premium 3D technology for use in pipeline “feature” analysis
The 3D Toolbox is composed of a 3D structured light “camera”, ruggedized PC controller, software and accessories all in a strong protected case that can be easily transported to any jobsite worldwide. The 3D Toolbox is one of the best tools in Spectrum’s arsenal for nondestructive evaluation of surface “features” (corrosion, defects, dents, etc.).
The many benefits of this technology as noted by PRCI member companies as well as PHMSA, NTSB, NEB include:
More Accurate Decision Making
The pipeline industry is often challenged in assessing the severity of a particular pipe anomaly (dent, gouge, corrosion pit, etc.) to determine whether or not repair or removal is warranted. In addition, there is also a need for prioritizing in-line-inspection (ILI) data, and for rendering remaining-life assessments of the pipe. Spectrum’s 3D Toolbox enables us to quickly and accurately collect repeatable data that can then be used with computational tools such as ASME B31G, Modified ASME B31G, RSTRENG© and API 579/ASME FFS-1.
