H.G. Schaevitz

H.G. Schaevitz LLC Alliance Sensors introduced the GHS-19 series of spring-loaded linear variable inductive transducer (LVIT) gaging sensors. Contactless devices designed for dimensional gaging and position measurements in industrial applications in which the sensing element cannot be attached to the object being measured. Using LVIT technology with its simple coil design. The GHS-19 series offer excellent stroke-to-length ratios and features low-cost drop-in replacement for spring-loaded LVDTs, with same connector and pinouts. The contactless operation prevents sensor’s from  wearing out due to dithering or rapid cycling.

Sulzer Mixpac USA

Sulzer Mixpac USA is offering the portable MixCoat Spray pneumatic dispense system, designed for small volume applications, touch-up and repairs, including pipeline repair and field joint coating. The company said the system works well with complex, quick-set coating structures, such as like 100% solid polyurethanes and polyureas. The complete MixCoat Spray system includes cartridges containing the packaged coating material, a mixer that ensures consistent coating mix, and the pneumatic operated spray. With a lightweight, ergonomic design, the MixCoat Spray is ideal for one-handed use, and is ideal for limited-accessibility spaces. All MixCoat products give users the ability to use 1:1, 2:1, 3:1 and 4:1 ratios.


MAXX North America Services USA offers a range of pipeline integrity services, including inspection, tracking and maintenance, to the upstream, midstream and downstream markets. MAXX, which originated in Canada began operations in the United States in 2013, with an office in Billings, Mont., has completed projects in North Dakota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, New York, Kansas, Oklahoma and Wyoming.


Tracerco is offering its subsea computed tomography (CT) scanner, DiscoveryTM, which recently received Lloyd’s register (LR) recognition. The trials  were conducted in a simulated subsea environment at Tracerco’s headquarters in Billingham, U.K. and determined the depth limit for reliable probability of detection (POD) and typical sizing tolerances for metal loss anomalies of subsea pipes. The technology is available for non-intrusive inspection of  platforms, pipelines, buoyancy tanks and other subsea vessels, including any type of unpiggable, piggable, coated and uncoated subsea pipeline.


Caterpillar Oil & Gas offers the Cat® 3512E Tier 4 Final Land Electric Drilling engine. Manufactured in the company’s Lafayette, Ind., facility – the engine meets EPA T4 final emission standards with the proven NOx reduction system (NRS), commonly referred to as exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) technology. NRS technology doesn’t require a secondary fluid like diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) to meet emissions regulation.

Rex Industrial

Rex Industrial introduced its Engineering CommerceTM system, a fully integrated process that supplies engineered products and services, used to deliver industrial structures on-demand. Used by facility owners, operators, consultants and contractors, the database-driven system streamlines connects from design through to delivery. Companies can customize and purchase various types of structures and associated foundations online. Design information is entered into online templates and once approved, a customized structure is delivered on location for installation. To ensure quality, each purchase comes with an engineered sealed document.


Intertek unveiled a new pipeline quality verification solution, Intertek PipeAware, offering pipeline owners digital access to pipeline integrity data which is vital for assurance and compliance purposes. PipeAware combines traceability and pipe inspection into one task so customers achieve full transparency into the manufacturing process of the asset, either offline or online, 24/7, from anywhere around the world. By capturing vital inspection, testing and material information, customers can be confident that pipeline manufacturing processes comply with regulatory and predetermined specifications, enabling them to make informed decisions that ensure pipelines operate safely and efficiently.


Abriox introduced Osprey, a new remote gas pressure monitoring system designed to save time and money while improving the quality of data collection. The system provides continuous monitoring without the need for on-site personnel or maintenance and is quick to install and generates instant alerts to indicate abnormal pressure levels. Osprey is available in single and multi-channel models, offers flexible pressure ranges and has a sensor accuracy of  0.15% FS.  Osprey’s built-in GPS module displays its geographical location. Data collected from satellites allows Osprey to establish the exact time and date of every pressure measurement it records. In cases of fluctuating pressure, poor pipe design, freezing temperatures or water ingress, the system is equipped with incident evaluation mode (IEM) for fast deployment of investigative or remedial work.
