In-line inspection tools are used for one or more of the following reasons: \(\bullet \) pipeline cleaning; \(\bullet \) change of the transported product (batching); \(\bullet \) scheduled or unscheduled (e.g., in case of pipeline movement as a result of accident) inspection (diagnostics) of the pipeline state.
