Disruptive Innovation Russian Magnetic Tomography Technology


Russian advanced technology: Magnetic Tomography for pipelines  

Transkor-K, Russia invented the Magnetic Tomography Method (MTM) and is the world's leader in the field of remote inspection of undeground/underwater oil/gas pipelines, detection risk areas, and early-warning signals.

Remote Detection of Risk Areas in Metal Structures
◊ Corrosion Insights ◊ Advanced Software






Many multinational corporations tried to cope up with Transkor's Magnetic Tomography technology. All them failed.
Transkor's magnetic tomography technology is THE ONLY technology in the world that can detect defects and risk areas in pipelines hundreds times faster, cheaper and more reliably
than conventional technologies used by all others.

Transkor performs the following activities: designing and manufacturing of unique devices and systems for non-destructive testing of technical condition of pipeline systems (including unpiggable), and also carrying out works for increasing reliability and safety with their products in the sectors of the national economy related to operation of pipelines, reservoirs, etc. For the last 16 years the patented metal control devices for 100% of the pipelines has passed the large-scale industrial approbation at the facilities of 30 countries, in the largest operators of the oil and gas sector and confirmed the reliability of the data at a level of more than 85%.


Quick Remote Scanning of Pipelines

To monitor pipelines which are not subject to ILI in 2001 MTM was developed - the technology of continuous magnetic field scanning of the entire length of pipeline.

Dependences between the magnetic and mechanical properties of pipe steel have been found. In 2002-2010 many tests were carried out such as: search and evaluation of defects and clusters with defects of different nature; search and evaluation of stress concentration zones in conditions of rough terrain, both under internal pressure and absence of pressure; search for the weakest section on a pipeline of limited length.

Fast Inspection of Underwater Pipelines

In 2011 MTM was adapted to evaluate the state of underwater pipelines (Aqua MTMô).The essence of technique is in the continuous scanning of 3D magnetic field along the pipeline axis, construction of a stress distribution map, selection of limit criteria for specific pipeline operating conditions and the determination of VAT anomalies associated with changes of mechanical stresses. As device carriers for purposes of underwater inspection could be used ROV, AUV and diver.

Technology based on MTM, which goal is to calculate the actual mechanical stresses distributed along the axis of the given pipeline. This is achieved by determining relationship of the parameters between magnetic and mechanical fields of pipeline.


 As a result, MTM identifies the exact location of areas with increased concentration of mechanical stresses (VAT anomalies)
and interprets the level of their danger based on the values of maximum local stress.


Common pipeline safety procedures determine the values of mechanical stresses obtained by calculations (FEM, Rstreng, etc) based on knowledge of the distribution of defects, their size and location.

The information about defects and their properties can be obtained both with the use of standard means of ILI (In-line inspection) and with the help of NDE tools at sampling points (in digs). There are other ECDA / ICDA standards that result in indirect risk assessment methods.

It should be noted that for selective digs areas for dissection selected by the operator basing on subjective expert assessments and experience. Safety of entire pipeline is based on interpolation of these results into entire length.

 For conventional pipeline inspection methods, the risk of missing a serious defect remains high
since less than 2% of the length of pipeline is monitored.
