Access comprehensive information on the integrity of water and wastewater pipelines
Comprehensive condition assessment data for pipelines
Pure Technologies PipeWalker tools offer a steady, stable, and methodical option for pipeline condition assessment in situations where the pipe is dewatered or where the option to dewater is available.
In addition, because the operators walk the pipeline with the tool, visual inspection gives immediate feedback on joints and the condition of mortar.
Using Pure Technologies electromagnetic technology, the PipeWalker condition assessment tools offer condition assessment information on both PCCP and metallic pipes of a variety of sizes. With solutions for both PCCP and metallic pipe (Pure Technologies electromagnetic technology detects and locates broken wire wraps in PCCP and localized areas of corrosion on metallic pipe).
Combined with Pure Technologies advanced engineering solution, PipeWalker condition assessment gives utility owners comprehensive information on the integrity of their water or wastewater pipelines in order to make confident decisions on the management of their pipelines today and into the future.
- Visual inspection of the pipeline with condition data
- Provides actionable information on both PCCP and metallic pipes
- Can be used to inspect large pipes
Despite their critical importance, for decades many municipal utilities have operated under a “bury and forget” mentality – with little emphasis on long-term management of their aging pipelines – at least until something goes wrong. Then they must fix the problem under emergency conditions, often considering only immediate needs and not the future operation of the pipeline in question.
