Pipe tracing: Our Methods
We can trace different types of pipes using the following methods:
We induce a small electrical current on the pipe with a generator (Genny) and detect the signal using a C.A.T (cable avoidance tool).
We transmit pulses along the pipe using a PWG (Pulse Wave Generator) or Transonde. The pulses create a vibration that can then be located acoustically using a ground microphone.
Alternatively, we can feed a flexitrace into the pipe and use the Genny to energize the tip of the coil – this can be picked up by the C.A.T.
