Welcome to PICA: Pipeline Inspection and Condition Analysis Corporation

PICA provides “Direct Condition Assessment (DCA)” of pipelines through the use of in-line inspection (ILI) tools. Direct condition assessment is the best way for Asset Managers to truly know if a pipeline can be repaired or rehabilitated, or if the pipeline truly needs to be replaced.

“Good Decisions Start with Good Information” is the premise under which PICA operates.

Using our unique patented technology, PICA provides accurate measurements of remaining wall thickness in cast iron, ductile iron and steel pipelines. Using electromagnetic technology, our tools have equal sensitivity to wall loss regardless of whether it is on the inside or outside of the pipe and can “see” through liners, scale and tubercles to detect graphitization and pitting, erosion and cracks.

Our clients and applications include:

  • Municipal water companies: potable water distribution and transmission mains
  • Municipal operators of wastewater systems: force mains and syphons
  • Maintenance managers of processing plants: fire-water lines
  • Refineries, gas plants and chemical plants: drain lines and fire-water lines
  • Mines and heavy oil or oil sands plants: slurry lines
  • Private operators of water or wastewater systems: buried and top-side pipelines
  • Nuclear and thermal power stations: cooling water pipelines

We also offer various turnkey solutions, monitoring solutions and solutions for concrete lines. Please visit our website for more information.
