PCM™+ and PCM™+ Transmitter

Discontinued Products

This discontinued product has been replaced by the exciting new PCMx range of products.

Radiodetection’s PCM+ system accurately detects and pinpoints weaknesses & holidays in oil & gas pipeline coatings.

Combined with its new high performance transmitter the PCM+ accurately and easily locates and maps pipelines for up to 19 miles, providing simultaneous measurement of PCM Current and Voltage Gradient, even in areas where there is contact with other metallic structures, interference, or congestion. This eliminates the need for the pipeline technician to perform direct connection 'current spans' and manual calculations to determine CP currents along the pipeline reducing false indications and minimizing unnecessary excavations. Any current leakage fault in the pipeline coating can be further narrowed down to within 3 feet by use of the A frame.
