Sonar Pipeline Inspection


In the past pipelines filled with murky water have not been inspected due to the high cost and potential downtime involved with the process. Now, using high-resolution sonar units (which may be skid, float, or robotic tractor mounted) we can survey and fully assess pipelines 10" to 120" in diameter, measuring the magnitude of any defects that may be present. This same concept allows our operators to measure debris and sediment depth in pipelines and shafts.

As the scanner is moved through the pipeline an indication of distance traveled is shown and recorded on the screen. Internal sensors monitor the attitude of the scanning device and is displayed as pitch and roll indicators in analogue and digital form on the screen to show the orientation of the unit.

Features & Benefits:

• For use in submerged and semi-submerged pipelines ranging from 8" to 18 feet.

• Used with CCTV to provide simultaneous image of pipe both above and below waterline.

• Provides "real-time" cross-sectional views of the pipe, utilizing high resolution/short range sonar.

• Provides and quantifies accurate dimensional data on silt level, grease accumulation, pipe deformation, offsets, blockages, etc. below the water line in partially charged lines.

• Sonar inspection provides a two-dimensional profile of the interior pipe wall, much like a medical MRI.

Sonar profiling has proven useful in a variety of applications. Surcharged pipelines, siphons, river crossings, and force mains can be inspected with confidence and without the costly, disruptive ad sometimes impossible need for bypass pumping. Hard copy reports can be supplied, as well as electronic reports that can be opened in almost any computer aided design software.

our advantages

Industry Leading Innovations

From the beginning, Carylon companies have thrived on the notion of innovation. They invented the first continuous rod, truck-mounted power rodder for cleaning sewers, developed the use of closed-circuit television for sewer line inspections, and pioneered the internal sealing of leaking sewers using pressure chemical grouting.

24/7/365 Response When Needed

Carylon companies were among the first to provide privatized disaster response; giving top priority to requests for assistance following any natural or man-made disaster. Our vast resource of men, equipment and experience have helped many disaster-stricken communities restore normalcy to the lives of their residents in the shortest time possible.

Our Unmatched Guarantee

Whether your project calls for the use of one man and one piece of equipment, or multi-disciplinary crews and a fleet of specialized equipment, we can do the job, and do it right. And, we don't just say we can - we guarantee it. All work is backed by a guarantee that is unmatched in the industry.
