DETECTION OF NON-METALLIC PIPES
MTA PIPE LOCATOR allows the location of non-metallic pressure pipes in meshed networks (AC, PE, PVC …) including
T-pieces and 90° bends.
MTA PIPE LOCATOR floats with the fluid through the pipeline system and is located from aboveground by means of a customary detection device. Launch and removal are possible via hydrants, tees or tapping sleeves. At a flow rate of 0.5 m/s, pipe sections can be located up to 15km length in one operation.
Parachute systems to support the advancement of the MTA PIPE-LOCATOR are used in pipes larger than DN 150mm.
The location can be carried out with any commercially available detection device equipped with a 33kHz receiver. Recommended devices: VIVAX, Easyloc
