FERROPHON – Generator FG 155 C

Electromagnetic location of metallic pipes AND acoustic location of plastic pipes

The high-performance generator for locating pipelines

During day-to-day locating work it is often the case that the exact location of pipelines is not known. This can be due to planning documents being lost or incomplete documentation following new installations or changes to the position of the pipelines. However, the position of all of the pipelines must be known to be able to locate leaks accurately or to prevent damage to the valuable pipeline infrastructure when completing excavation work. The generators of the FERROPHON system are always an indispensable aid when pipelines need to be located.

FERROPHON® – FG 155 C generator

Suitable for universal use

The FG 155 C generator can be used to locate pipes using electromagnetic and acoustic methods.

It can be used to directly or indirectly energize electro-conductive pipes. With an output of up to 50 W, it is ideal for extreme locating ranges. Thanks to the strong performance parameters, the FG 155 C generator perfectly complements all receivers from the UT 9200/9100/930, FERROPHON® and UtiliTrac systems.

To locate plastic pipes acoustically, the generator controls an oscillator in the COMBIPHON® system or optionally the tapper or stopper. Pipes that are made to vibrate by the Striker or Stopper can then be located with the help of a receiver and ground microphone. For this task combining the AQUAPHON® A 200 receiver, TS 200 carrying rod und BM 200 or BM 230 ground microphone is recommended.
