System provides condition information

PipeDiver, from the Pressure Pipe Inspection Company, offers a unique solution to the ever-widening water infrastructure-funding gap faced by municipalities. The system provides critical information about the condition of prestressed concrete cylinder pipelines (PCCP) while the pipeline remains in service.

The system is also ideal for water transmission lines that can’t be taken out of service due operational constraints or a lack of redundancy. PipeDiver provides accurate condition assessments by detecting prestressing wires breaks that could lead to pipe ruptures. PipeDiver is a free-swimming tool that is inserted into the pipeline and can travel long distances collecting critical data about the integrity of the pipeline. The system uses Remote Field Transformer Coupling (RFTC) technology.
