MMT'S CORE MISSION IS TO SUPPORT THE SAFE AND AFFORDABLE LiFE-EXTENSION of PIPELINE ASSETS.
Nondestructive inspection service companies are the primary users of MMT’s field instruments. They are now certified to offer measurements of material properties to the pipeline asset owners and operators that complement more traditional flaw sizing. The number of recurring direct users and end users has been more than doubling every year. MMT’s technologies enable these customers to fulfill new federal regulation requirements specific to material verification that became effective in December 2021.
Massachusetts Materials Technologies (MMT) was founded in 2014 to develop and commercialize new instrumentation to accurately measure mechanical properties of oil and gas pipelines without having to interrupt service and extract pipe cutouts for laboratory testing. The three co-founders hold degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) where originated the scientific discovery and validation of frictional sliding as a method to accurately measure mechanical properties. Today, our team of 30 employees brings a broad range of experience to deliver products, training and technical support.
Having reached commercial sustainability, MMT is working closely with customers and industry stakeholders to enhance the value of the field measurements beyond fulfilling regulatory requirements.
