Kinectrics LineVue™ Featured in T and D World Magazine

November 17, 2015

A technical article describing a US utility project using the Kinectrics LineVue tool has been published in the September edition of T&D World magazine. This T&D World in-depth feature provides details of the specific performance and results that can be achieved using LineVue.

The article describes a project for which Nebraska Public Power District (NPPD) chose LineVue to inspect a number of its conductor spans and collect data, primarily on corrosion.

Initially two options were available to NPPD to perform the required inspections: removal of sections of conductor for lab testing and analysis or, in-situ non-destructive inspection using the Kinectrics LineVue device. NPPD chose LineVue for the project over retrieving field samples, because of the short duration required for data collection (3 days versus 6 to 10 weeks for sample removal and lab testing).

An added benefit for NPPD on the project was the immediate ability of the LineVue results to indicate the physical condition of the conductor core and components being inspected.
