Scientific and Engineering Know-How
We are a world leader in NDT technologies, with comprehensive expertise in product development, in-field survey techniques, data analysis and a risk-based, predictive approach to recommendation and reporting. With direct links to educational and scientific institutions CPE-Elorane delivers cutting-edge technology, allowing for continual adaptability of geophysical instrumentation and techniques to suit specific client requirements and challenges.
Jim Cull (AM), Professor Emeritus from Monash University and director of Elorane Pty Ltd, has come together with CPE Systems, combining scientific and engineering capabilities that are applicable to a number of varied industries such as :
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.
