GEMINI MFL and Caliper Pipeline Inspection
The Baker Hughes GEMINI™ high-resolution MFL and caliper in-line inspection service saves you money and gets more data. Our one-of-a-kind combination of inspection technology with tri-axial sensors, calipers, an onboard inertial measurement unit (IMU), and gas bypass with active speed control stretches your pipeline integrity budget.
Reduce dig cost
Our pipeline inspection service reduces the number of required verification digs with accurate data while ensuring you’re digging in the right location. The GEMINI tool’s tri-axial MFL sensors, combined with caliper technology, offer high-resolution metal loss and deformation data. We continually meet or exceed pipeline operator requirements for detection and sizing of metal loss and deformation.
You can be confident you’re digging in the right location. When you’re looking for an anomaly, our positional accuracy is known to be the best in the industry. This accuracy is better than +/-3.3 ft [1 m], reducing overall dig cost. The tool’s onboard IMU collects the data to calculate a GPS coordinate for every anomaly and feature contained in the final report.
Maintain full product throughput
We inspect gas pipelines at optimum speed for high-resolution data collection while the pipeline maintains full product throughput. There’s no lost gas revenue during inspection; you can maintain gas deliveries with uninterrupted service. Our integrated gas bypass system with active speed control is available on all large-diameter GEMINI tools.
Determine if the pipeline has moved
We use the tool’s IMU data to calculate bending strain so you’ll know about potential pipeline movement caused by slope instability, frost heave, subsidence, temperature/pressure variations, flooding, upheaval, or new construction impact.
