The RD550 water pipe locator is the ideal system to help the operator locate underground pipes and map water supply infrastructure.
|Suitable for all pipe materials such as PVC, PE, AZ, cast iron, steel etc|
|Zero electromagnetic disturbance|
|Extremely high memory capacity for more than 240,000 measurements|
|Low energy requirements|
|Detection range up to 600m|
The RD550 can locate non-metallic pipes at depths of up to 2 meters (6.5 feet) below the surface. The RD550 kit consists of a handheld receiver and a transmitter.
When the system is mounted on a water pipe or hydrant, water pressure opens and closes the valve approximately 60 times a minute. The resulting pulsed pressure waves that travel along the pipe and can be measured and saved by the receiver.
