CPE-Elorane

The geosciences arm of CPE Systems is based in Melbourne, Australia. We provide an elite capacity for advanced geophysical surveys in Australia and worldwide. Numerous surveys have been conducted since 1986 with particular emphasis on high resolution geophysical methods designed for engineering and environmental applications.

“We know the geophysical techniques that are the best because we produce the products and services that deliver them.”

Capabilities also include a research and development program aimed at improving technologies, further assisting asset managers to balance due diligence with the need for cost-effective asset integrity programs. For example :

  • CPE-Elorane now provides for a more advanced and robust LPR system to that of traditional techniques in that it is the first one of its kind to use synthetic standards – a fully digital system, crucial for quality assurance. Further, we use numerical analysis and equivalent circuit theory, providing data of highest precision. The method is different, more robust and much more accurate.
  • In addition to LPR we have developed the PEDL (Polarised Electrolytic Double-Layer) technique. PEDL adds additional information in spot sampling by obtaining data derived from resistivity, LPR and stray current corrosion, providing a soil signature and detecting areas that are susceptible to accelerated areas of electrolysis. This is the only technique that is sensitive to electrochemical activities associated with corrosion. It interrogates large volumes of pipe bedding obtaining continuous data samples, thus sampling entire pipe volume without being subjected to sampling error.
