Your Pipeline Integrity Partner

President's Message

Dear industry professionals,

Our “commitment to excellence” is driven by providing you with the best possible Pipeline Inspection and Integrity Management Services.

We have developed and have built the best:

  • Hardware inspection equipment to collect data from your pipeline and
  • Software to process into reliable inspection reports.

Our inspection tools move in your pipeline in the smoothest way possible to minimise the dynamic influences of operational pipelines so that it produces quality data.

The software programs present reliable pipeline inspection information comprehensively and support all Pipeline Management Integrity programs.

The Research and Development Department is continuously pushing today’s technology barriers to generate innovative solutions to increase the inspection accuracy from the accepted 90% industry standards to 99.9%.

LIN SCAN modus operandi is based on the approach of optimising Management, Environment, Reporting, Integrity and Technology (MERIT).

Finally, we have successfully inspected many “un-piggable” pipelines, and we are determined to find solutions for your “un-piggable” pipes too.
