This bend locator tool is used to locate bends potentially dangerous to pigging operations. This tool is coupled to and runs in tandem with the geometry tool. A universal cable assembly records the magnitude of the bend deflection. The locator tool can identify and locate 1 * diameter and 3 diameter radius bends. Smaller bends are also recorded and used as benchmarks. This information can be correlated to the geometry survey.
