Safe inspection of gas supply networks

Gas supply networks are checked for their condition at regular intervals in order to detect leaks.

Within figawa, the service companies for pipe network inspection and the manufacturers of the associated measurement technology are actively involved in designing the technical regulations, such as DVGW G 465-1 "Inspection of gas pipeline systems with an operating pressure up to 4 bar".

Importance of the quality of corporate certification

The pipe network inspection technology is continuously improved through research and development projects.

New measuring sensors and the use of vehicle-based systems are being qualified for use in pipeline network inspection in R&D projects.

Quality assurance of corporate certification is also particularly important in this area. For example, the status of the company qualification is checked annually in order to be able to maintain the existing good level.
