PureRobotics is a powerful robotic pipeline inspection system that can be configured to inspect virtually any pipe application.

Identify problem pipeline areas more easily using a robotic crawler

PureRobotics is a modular, powerful robotic inspection system that helps utilities screen their network for problem areas and gain a better understanding of the condition of their assets.

The robotic crawler is designed to easily transport sensors and tools through water pipelines that are either dewatered or depressurized.

The robot is a multi-sensor platform that carries a variety of condition assessment tools inside the pipeline in a single deployment. The platform also provides live video that can aid in detecting anomalies within the pipe. In addition, the tethered tool is an unmanned solution, which makes inspections significantly safer.

Combined with Pure Technologies’ advanced engineering solution, the PureRobotics platform delivers comprehensive and actionable condition assessment data in a flexible manner giving utilities reliable information to act on with confidence as part of an asset management program.


  • Quick and easy to deploy
  • Modular to adapt to many pipe conditions
  • Dewatering not required
  • Live video stream
  • Safer than manned entry

Featured Case Study

City of Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada

The City of Saint John provides raw water for industrial customers via the Industrial Water Transmission Main, a 1500 mm and 1350 mm (60-inch and 54-inch) pipeline constructed in the early 1970s. Managing the integrity of this critical main is key to maintaining continued operation and production for major industrial plants in the region. During a shutdown in 2017, the tethered PureRobotics® platform was deployed to gather information on the current condition of the Industrial Water Transmission Main.
