Paradigm Flow Solutions has unveiled Pipe-Pulse, a patented technology to improve the removal process of subsea blockages.

The new technology is a remote, non-intrusive method of locating and removing blockages in long-distance pipework up to 30 miles.

The system can be connected to the topside facilities of the host platform through either the pig launcher or the umbilical termination unit to clear the blockages.

High energy and volume pressure pulses sent into the pipeline are transmitted at the speed of the sound to remove blockages that are several miles away.

The company signed a contract worth $250,000 with one of its customers to unblock a pipeline in the North Sea.

In the last two months Paradigm has received more than $1m worth of orders for its other technologies.
