MTA PIPE INSPECTOR®

MTA PIPE-INSPECTOR®

Cable-less Video-Inspection of Pipelines
with Integrated Leak Detection

For Potable Water,
Wastewater, Hydropower and Industrial Applications

APPLICATIONS

Pipe-Inspector allows the cable-less and complete optical and acoustic inspection of transport pipelines without interrupting operation. In contrast to wired Video-inspection systems, this procedure operates wirelessly, so that the continuous inspection of long sections up to 50km length is possible.

Pipe-Inspector overcomes 90° bends and is used in pipelines from DN 100 to DN 3000 regardless of the material. Pipe-Inspector is applicable in hard-to-reach pipelines such as airports, highways, industrial or other access sensitive areas.

Thanks to a pressure resistance of up to 100bar Pipe-Inspector can be even used the inspection of hydropower pipelines e.g. for commissioning inspections.

OPERATION

Pipe-Inspector floats battery powered and cableless in the pipeline fluid providing continuously data from inside for determining inspected pipeline’s condition without excavation or pipe cutting. The device is introduced by a kind of pig trap at existing T-pieces, at tanks or vents and can be retrieved for the inspection data analysis at a defined endpoint.

LAUNCH & RETRIEVAL

Device launch and retrieval in pressurized pipelines

POTABLE WATER

Diameter: DN 200
Material: Epoxy inliner on cast iron
Inspection Length: 1,200m

MTA Messtechnik and Schmidt Watertechniek implemented a pilot project for Brabant Water, The Netherlands in November 2015.

POTABLE WATER

Diameter: DN 100
Material: Grey cast
PN 16

HYDROPOWER

Diameter: DN 500
Pipeline length: 3,700m
Country: Austria
Pipe-Inspector: PW-DN225

Unexpected foreign object “Hammer” found in pipeline

HYDROPOWER

Diameter: DN 2000
Material: GRP
Pressure: PN 6 – PN 20

The outstanding feature of this video isn’t the image display but rather the sound. On 1401.9m you will hear the typical structure-borne noise indicating a leakage. The turbidity of the water was caused by heavy rains shortly before the inspection, so that the visibility was affected accordingly.

WASTEWATER

Material: PVC
Diameter: DN 200
Pressure: PN 16
Length: 1.050m
Country: Austria

WASTEWATER

Open Channel
Diameters: DN 250 | DN 300 | DN 600
Material: GRP

RAW WATER

Diameter: DN 100
Material: Ductile iron with cement mortar lining
Pressure: PN 5
