Improved Tools to Locate Buried Pipelines in a Congested Underground 693JK31810009
The project developed and validated a geospatial probe to map existing buried utilities through insertion into live gas pipelines. The resulting technology transfer led to the Live Gas Mapper (LGM-2) tool by REDUCT. The LGM-2 can map buried live gas pipes with an ID range of 50mm up to 100mm (2" to 4"). From a single hot tap entry point it can map a gas pipe up to 300 meters/1,000' length in each direction, thus capturing data and the geographical location of 600 meters/2,000' of live gas pipe.
