Reliable pipe location UT9000 - Sewerin

Easy – always – efficient

When it comes to operating and maintaining pipe and cable networks, the documentation about their location is sometimes incomplete. And it is not just in the urban environment where pipes run under streets, squares and pavements, but also under undeveloped land. Precise knowledge about the position of each pipe reduces the level of maintenance required and reliably avoids probing or excavation at the wrong site. The products available from SEWERIN (Germany) for locating pipe work offer comprehensive solutions for different situations.

Underground pipe locator Combiphon CG50 - Sewerin

Acoustic location of plastic pipes.

Plastic pipes cannot be located by conventional electromagnetic means because they are not electro conductive. A different principle is applied when locating pipes using the acoustic method: The pipes transmit mechanical vibrations better than the earth that surrounds them. When the pipe is caused to vibrate appropriately, these vibrations spread along the pipe to the earth's surface where they can be picked up by a ground microphone. In the same way as water leaks are detected by acoustic means, the pipeline is located where the intensity is greatest. This method can also be used to locate fiber cement pipes and metal pipes.
The COMBIPHON® system consists of the Generator CG50 central control unit and various impulse generators, so it can be used anywhere. Stoppers or tappers are used to generate noises on the line which can then be acoustically detected by the AQUAPHON® or AquaTest T10 systems.
