Analyzing defects using 3D imaging
The 3D Toolbox is a complete 3D structured light measurement system for inspecting oil and gas infrastructure. The 3D Toolbox is used for the non-destructive evaluation (NDE) method for gathering pipeline feature or defect measurements (corrosion, gouges, dents, etc.). The defect assessment software integrates ASME B31G, RSTRENG, ASME B31.4 and ASME B31.8 for quick decision making. The 3D Toolbox is ruggedized (IP67) and using it is as simple as point.click.done.
The 3D Toolbox is ruggedized to meet the demands of operating the system in harsh environments. The level of ingress protection, or IP rating is IP67: no ingress of dust and the ability to withstand submersion in three feet (on meter) of water for a minimum of thirty minutes. In addition, the 3D Toolbox survives a drop of three feet (one meter) onto concrete: this exceeds the maximum IK rating of 10 for drop test protection. With an operating temperature that ranges from 0F (-15C) to 110F (40C), the 3D Toolbox is ready for the most difficult jobs.
Generate fitness-for-service test reports in minutes with the 3D Toolbox. The end-to-end software solution includes: 3D image capture, defect analysis, and report generation. The analysis and reports comply with ASME and CSA requirements for level one and level two assessment. Output data files enable level three assessment.
The 3D Toolbox is a complete measurement system for inspecting oil and gas infrastructure. It uses real-time measurements and algorithms to process accurate measurements of 3D objects and surfaces.

Some infrastructure damage can be large…really large. Acquiring and stitching 3D images that cover an eight foot anomaly was a time consuming process. The PRCI EC-4-7 project required testing of several large anomalies. To meet the demands of this challenging project, Seikowave utilized newly developed software for automatic alignment of 3D images. Now acquisition and analysis of large areas can be accomplished quickly and easily. To complete the task, Seikowave also used newly developed fitness for service software that meets the following requirements: ASME B31G, modified B31G, RSTRENG, DNV F 101, and Kastner method, both Level 1 and Level 2.

The Seikowave Subsea System, 3D Submarine, is a prototype structured light 3D scanner that was designed to operate to a depth of up to 100m. In order to verify its effectiveness Lockheed Martin in cooperation with Chevron tested the Subsea System on December 19th and 20th, 2014, off of the Coast of West Palm Beach, FL. The results were a huge success; scanning at pressures of up to 175 PSI (the equivalent of being 110 meters underwater) the Seikowave Subsea System sustained the same high level scanning provided by the terrestrial 3D scanner.
