WRc approval has become the de facto standard [for ovality measurement] used by installers, rehab contractors and asset owners throughout North America and beyond.
Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) August 13, 2013
WinCan LaserScan software, distributed in North and South America exclusively through Pipeline Analytics, is now WRc Approved per PT/342/0713. To earn the approval, the software had to demonstrate ovality measurement to within +/-1% accuracy under several combinations of pipe size, material and deflection.
“Absent any homegrown standards for pipe ovality measurement, WRc approval has become the de facto standard used by installers, rehab contractors and asset owners throughout North America and beyond, ” said Mike Russin, Business Manager for Pipeline Analytics. “The review process was very rigorous, and we’re proud to join the prestigious family of WRc approved technologies.”
The approval has been granted for an initial period of five years, after which it will be renewed periodically.

The assessment can be against an existing standard or, for novel products, WRc can use its extensive knowledge of the UK and international water Industry to develop appropriate requirements.
