“Up until now, this has been the missing piece of pipeline strain measurement for the industry," says Dennis Janda of Baker Hughes' new AXISS technology.

Baker Hughes' new AXISS technology measures pure axial strain in a pipe due to an outside force, including new construction impact, slope instability, subsidence, frost heaves, or flooding.
Smart Pigs Safe Pipes AXISS-3
Baker Hughes' suite of technologies, including AXISS, allows inspection tools to move through gas, oil or refined products pipes and, in one pass, collect data used to detect various pipeline threats.

Baker Hughes' technology can measure any bending strain on a pipeline, using an onboard device called an inertial measurement unit (IMU).

Baker Hughes uses the most accurate inertial information possible, and combines it with GPS reference points, to record incremental movement over time—and accurately locate pipeline features that deserve a closer look.
