Pavlakovic shared from his stand with the Inspenet team to show the latest in technology and inspection equipment, highlighting the importance of innovation, broad vision and interaction between companies and potential clients.
“ There are many people who can benefit from our solutions .”
Regarding his products, Brian revealed significant advances in the field of continuous pipeline monitoring, explaining the technology that allows long-distance waves to be sent through pipelines to detect problems and focus energy on critical areas.
“ We can send waves through the pipe, detect where there is a problem and focus on it to make sure we are looking in the right place .”
The company’s monitoring solution offers continuous functionality, allowing configuration and sampling of data for detailed monitoring. Additionally, it introduced quantitative mapping, an axial sensor that detects defects and evaluates wall thickness, providing essential information for operational safety.
As for the future, the company’s plans focus on facilitating the training of inspectors and converting data into practical information by 2024.
In addition, they wish to continue strengthening their culture based on world-class customer service, excellence, teamwork and commitment, as well as continue developing and delivering innovative, visionary and essential technologies for their customers around the world, which includes oil and gas companies, refineries, chemical processing, transportation infrastructure, and power generation companies.
