GTI associates, with funding from OTD, are collaborating closely with colleagues at SENSIT Technologies to bring new hardware that reduces O&M costs to market.
The handheld acoustic-based pipe locator, named the Ultra-Trac® APL, is used to detect and locate both metallic and nonmetallic buried gas and sewer pipes prior to excavations and construction to reduce potential damage and the resulting incidents that can cause customer outages.
The Ultra-Trac® MJL (metallic joint locator) provides an easy way to locate cast-iron joints, chill rings in welded steel pipe, metallic tapping tees, metallic flanges, and metal repair clamps.
The Sensit PMD (portable methane detector) uses optical technology to improve the efficiency of walking leak surveys and can detect a few ppm to 100% methane.
The IRED Infrared Portable Ethane Detector, an easy-to-use handheld tool, was developed for use in the field to discriminate natural gas leaks from other sources of methane (e.g., swamp gas, landfill gas, and engine exhaust) and detect trace levels of ethane. The detection of ethane can be used as a fingerprint for natural gas in situations where the origin of a methane leak signal is questioned.
