16/12/2019 - InnovationSmartengo Best Fit is an innovative digital solution to save time and money during pipeline construction.
The problemAs we all know, pipes are not perfectly round, making it difficult to fit up pipe-ends that just don’t match and creating a major challenge for operators during pipeline construction. When the HiLo is too high, construction is stopped, whilst the un-matched pipe is taken off the firing line and quarantined, slowing down operations and costing time and money. That’s why Smartengo Best Fit has been developed.
The solutionThis solution is based on accurate pipe-end measurement and unique pipe-end identification. The data is then analyzed to predict the HiLo of all possible pipe-end combinations and to identify pipe-end compatibility – or incompatibility using an accurate deterministic approach. This enables operators to secure the production flow as per the specified HiLo or to reduce the HiLo which can lead to improved weld quality and other operational benefits.
