Quest Integrity Group ( www.QuestIntegrity.com), a global leader in the development and delivery of advanced inspection and engineering assessment services and software products, introduces HYDRA™, its newest inspection technology. HYDRA is an ultrasonic intelligent pig developed to inspect buried or inaccessible piping in nuclear plants and process piping in refining and chemical plants. This technology builds upon the company’s highly successful and time-proven FTIS™ and InVista™ inspection tools, utilized in fired heater coils and unpiggable pipelines, respectively. HYDRA has unique characteristics that were developed in accordance with specific industry requirements, including easy navigation of complex piping configurations, foreign material exclusion and limited launching/receiving space. Combining inspection data captured by HYDRA with LifeQuest™ assessment software, Quest Integrity can provide an integrated, integrity management solution set for the nuclear and process industries.
“Piping systems within nuclear and process facilities are challenging to inspect due to many factors, such as limited access and complex configurations. In the face of increased regulatory scrutiny and aging infrastructure, HYDRA provides a solution which was previously unavailable. Quest Integrity specializes in developing solutions for our clients’ most challenging problems, and HYDRA is another example of an innovative application of our advanced technology to support our clients,” said Rich Roberts, Vice President, Quest Integrity Group.
