Lovion CONTROL Digital Documentation of Gas Pipeline Inspections
Documenting Gas Pipeline Inspections digitally
The module Lovion CONTROL is available for documenting gas pipeline inspections digitally, in line with DVGW G465 guidelines. Thus, it is possible to carry out areal pipeline inspections and to organize them district by district. Numerous inspections are documented for each district. They include pipeline points, house connections, damages and defects. The routes can optionally be recorded using a GPS trail. Each documented point contains project-specific attributes suchs as "gas detector", "pilot", "measuring device" or "location".
Conducting an Inspection
Pipeline points, house connections, damages and defects are digitally documented during a gas pipeline inspection. Each point type contains the attribute "status", which can entail various catalogue values. For example, for a house connection, the status can include "inspection completed" , "not inspected" or a damage is documented with the status "pre-localisation" and classified as "A1", "A2", "B" or "C". The point type and status are used to visualize a specific symbol. A photo or other document can be attached to each documented point.
If a damage or defect is identified during an inspection, this can be documented in a digital sketch. The sketch is created using redlining functions directly in the map. Predfined sketch symbols can be used to quickly draw the necessary geometries. The design of the stamp field can be defined individually. Values such as "date", "gas detector", "pilot", "measuring device" or address are automatically inserted into the sketch. This makes each stamp field unique.
All inspections are displayed in an overview in Lovion CONTROL. Furthermore, they can be sorted according to their status. All documented points for each inspection are visualized in the map. In addition, the GPS trail and redlining geometries can also be displayed. The results are filtered using various criteria. A data export is possible using Lovion's standard functions.
