PIPE Data Management
Our Pipeline Installation Performance Evaluator, PIPE, has been developed and designed by Ant Hire Solutions to help transform pipeline pressure testing through a unique combination of accurate data logging technology and a real-time data management dashboard.
With our data logging technology, real-time performance analysis and expert intervention, we can instantly relay vital test information to the operatives on site. This ensures issues with leakage and excess air content are responded to immediately, saving time, keeping people safe and helping ensure only leak-free pipelines enter the network.
HOW DOES PIPE HELP UTILITIES AND CONTRACTORS CONDUCT AND ANALYSE TESTS?
With PIPE, contractors and operatives have real-time access to the information and analysis required to ensure all their hydrostatic pressure tests are delivered safely, efficiently and to industry compliance standards.
- Single view of test safety, compliance and leakage data in real time.
- GPS-enabled, location specific testing and co-ordination, improving operational productivity.
- Highly accurate information and analysis to support effect decision making and client quality assurance.
- The ability to drill down through the data for insight and analysis by location, site and operator.
- Every completed test result is stored for reference.
- All 'passed' certificates downloadable from a single location.
Contractors can also benchmark their performance by tests passed first time, air safety breaches and leakage against the all-industry data set, identifying areas for improvement and training.

Without accurate hydrostatic pressure testing, pipelines may be unable to withstand the pressures of constant use, so identifying leaks early can eliminate more expensive and time-consuming problems down the line.
As the industry leaders in hydrostatic pipeline pressure testing, we have the equipment, expert intervention and on-site support to help ensure your pressure tests are undertaken safely, efficiently and in line with industry standards, every time.
