Validating technologies that can provide an alternative to hydro-test inspection

​GTI’s hydro-testing alternatives program will identify and ultimately validate technologies that can provide an inspection that is equivalent to, or superior than, a hydro- test. The first phase of this program will characterize and quantify pipe that has not been subjected to a construction hydro-test to allow the selection of inspection technologies that could provide an assessment that regulators accept as equivalent to a hydro-test. The second phase of the program will perform validation studies of inspection tools to demonstrate their hydro-test equivalence and to obtain regulatory acceptance.
