The PWG pipe locating system consists of a receiver (geophone) and an electronic pulse generator PWG to be screwed on a water pipeline or on a hydrant. This system allows location non-metal pipes running up to 2 metres below the surface. Technical effort can be kept low, and the pipe section does not need to be shut down during the location process. The particular pipe section requires a minimum pressure of 2 bar, and handling the system is very simple. No special skills required.
Field of application
The waves generated by the device travel best on an even ground structure and ground surface. Under good conditions, distances of between 50 metres and 600 meters can be covered. The Pulse Wave Generator system can help to draft, amend, or check network plans, and it can be used both inside and outside residential areas. Also unknown pipes can be located quickly and reliably with this system.
