A Practical, Comprehensive, and Cost-Effective Inspection Solution

For safe operation and license renewal purposes, nuclear power plants require direct inspection of underground and buried piping with accurate, reliable NDE technologies. Diakont provides comprehensive buried pipe inspection services, from pre-inspection analysis through final integrity reporting and repair recommendations.

Utilizing a fleet of robotic in-line inspection tools equipped with multiple NDE sensors, Diakont’s inspection teams examine 100% of the piping system, precisely detecting and measuring corrosion, remaining wall thickness, dents, cracking, and more. Through early discovery of pipe defects and preventative maintenance, Diakont pipe inspection can prevent forced or extended outages, costly leaks, environmental damage, and regulatory scrutiny.

Diakont’s compact, self-propelled crawlers eliminate the need for excavation and excel in piping conditions previously considered inaccessible, such as those under structures, or with vertical sections, diameter changes, or multiple elbows. Conveniently self-propelled and bidirectional, Diakont’s crawlers can be launched and retrieved from a single access point to inspect up to 1800 feet of pipe.
