Innovative gouge versus metal loss classifier enhanced

For the first time, the industry can size gouges and metal loss within dents

Multiple Dataset (MDS) gouge versus metal loss (GvML) classifier

T.D. Williamson (TDW), the global pipeline solutions provider, has enhanced their Multiple Dataset (MDS) gouge versus metal loss (GvML) classifier, resulting in the industry's first published performance specification for gouge identification and depth sizing within a dent.

MDS offers comprehensive mechanical damage assessment by leveraging multiple technologies on a single inspection platform, where data is easily correlated to identify coincident threats.

The new classifier identifies gouges in natural gas and hazardous liquids pipelines with greater confidence, and provides depth sizing of gouge and corrosion features using field-validated tolerances.

No other technology can provide this level of detection, identification or sizing of gouges associated with mechanical damage, one of the leading causes of catastrophic pipeline failures worldwide.
