Non-metal pipes can be detected if the glass fibre rod can be inserted into the pipe in question. The rod is equipped with a copper strand so that it can be energized by a pipeline locating system such as FERROPHON® or UtiliTrac® using a generator and then detected using a receiver. In this way, the path of the pipe in question can be determined quickly and exactly to the last meter.
The mini pig transmitter is used for precise determination of the end of the glass fibre rod. This small, battery-operated transmitter generates its own field, which is detected precisely by a receiver. The exact depth can also be measured. The mini pig transmitter can also be used without a glass fibre rod. This makes a wide variety of uses with pipeline cleaning pigs, channel cameras, etc. possible!
