Joint Inspection

Joint inspection is the cornerstone of ControlPoint’s quality assurance system.

The system is simple.

  • Joint data (photographs, fusion records, test reports, pipe and fitting barcodes) is collected from site through easy to use ControlPoint hardware and apps.
  • This data is transmitted in real time to the secure JointManager website.
  • The pre-weld photos taken on site are then assessed by the joint inspection team who evaluate each joint against agreed conformance criteria.
  • Any non-conformances are identified via alerts to on-site supervisors who can investigate and take action before the joint is buried.

Asset owners using this service have more than doubled the level of installation conformance on their pipelines.
