Prime Horizontal GyroTrack Team Completes 100th Survey

prime horizontal logoPrime Horizontal recently announced that its GyroTrack team successfully executed its 100th GyroTrack survey since beginning to offer this service.

GyroTrack is a versatile post installation pipeline mapping system. Its exchangeable centralizer units give GyroTrack an operational range of ID 90 mm (3.5 in.) to ID 1,200 mm (48 in.”). Regardless of pipe material or guidance technique used, GyroTrack provides accurate results of post job pipeline location and is offered globally from Prime Horizontal’s international offices.

The GyroTrack tool with centralization, may be pulled either by a hand operated wireline or a mechanical winch. In certain cases, the tool may be pumped through the product line.

After physical location measurements are made with the HDD operation, the GyroTrack tool is inserted into one end of the product line. GyroTrack is pulled through the line at a predetermined rate, usually 1 m/sec to 1.5 m/sec. After GyroTrack arrives at the other end of the product line, it is reversed and pulled back obtaining a second, confirming, set of data. The captured data is immediately checked on site to ensure data collection limits and quality control targets have been met. After confirmation, the data may be uploaded to the office through GPRS or an immediate, on site Survey Report may be provided or both.

The on-site report includes at least the following attributes — pipeline profile, bend radius report per customer defined intervals, inclination analysis, job specification and job locations. Output data can be exported to open platform formats for seamless integration into common, industry-standard GIS formats and saved to files such as AutoCAD, Excel, MicroStation and Notepad.
