HDPE Pipelines – Mining Site
Dexon was contracted to develop and build a pipeline inspection tool capable of measuring the condition and remaining wall thickness of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipelines used to transport tailings for a major US mining corporation at their flagship mine site in Indonesia. Left is the HDPE Test Line. Here we test our tools and to proof to the client the anomalies are found
These high wear lines are 40” in diameter and run for 3.4kms before finishing on the seabed at a depth of 160 meters. Our tools were developed with both the capability to accurately assess the integrity of the pipelines and also to be retrievable when exiting the pipeline on the ocean floor.
