Transneft Diascan’s Technical Solutions Legally Protected in Eurasian Region

Date of publication: 28 June 2018 Print

Transneft Diascan and Transneft have received two Eurasian invention patents, the exclusive rights to which, after the legalisation is finished, will be valid for 20 years in the Republic of Belarus, in Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan as well as in member states of the Eurasian Patent Convention.

The following patents confirm exclusive rights to the following technical solutions:

Ultrasonic Defectoscope Sensors Carrier, an invented configuration of a carrier of an ultrasonic defctoscope’s  sensors which are used for detecting flaws in small-diameter pipelines. It increases the accuracy of diagnostic information obtained by running a pipeline inspection gadget (PIG) through a pipeline due to a higher density of ultrasonic sensors on the carrier. Apart from that, this technical solution enhances the sensor carrier’s flexibility when the flaw detector is moving and enables the PIG to pass turns of small-radius pipelines.

Circumferential Magnetisation Magnetic System for an In-Line Defectoscope, the invention that creates a system that minimises defect identification error due to reduced reciprocal influence of the principal belts of magnetic modules and improved uniformity of magnetic field distribution in the axial and circumferential directions.

Transneft Diascan is a hi-tech science-based business with sophisticated scientific and technical base and high innovative potential. To date, Transneft Diascan owns more than 140 titles of protection, including utility and invention patents (including in other states), certificates for computer software and databases.
