Leak detection forms a critical part of condition assessment for all water utilities and asset managers
inSCAN® is a sophisticated approach to internal, under pressure, long range leak detection and condition assessment for large diameter pipelines. It is specially designed to overcome the common difficulties that are associated with detecting leaks and ascertaining pipeline condition on large diameter pipes.
The inSCAN® unit operates on a tether that enters the water or waste water main through a 50 mm / 2” or larger tapping or valve under normal system operation and pressure, with no disruption to supply. The inSCAN® sensor is carried with the flow of water, testing the integrity of the pipeline.
The resulting data gathered allows for the detection of the smallest of leaks in all mains diameters (from 300 mm and above) as well as in all pipe materials. It is a fully computer and SCADA controlled system, with complete operational and safety management integration.
