RedZone extended the industry leading multi-sensor inspection (MSI) technology by performing condition assessment on mid-diameter pipes. Within these pipes, flow conditions can be unpredictable and inspection tools need to be able to capture valuable information in dry pipes or partially full pipes.
Depending on the conditions of the pipe, the MD Profiler can be utilized in either a wheeled or a floating configuration to best fit your inspection needs
Many of the conditions that plague lines are difficult to diagnose using traditional visual inspection methods. Determining levels of deformation, corrosion, and debris can aid planning cost-effective maintenance and rehab, but can only be accomplished through the use of MSI technology. In critical mid-diameter trunks and interceptors, visual only inspections are often unreliable and leave decision makers with the tough task of evaluating which pipes might appear to be deteriorating. With costly rehab decisions at stake, wastewater managers need facts on corrosion severity, not just visual evidence of potential problems.
Pioneered by RedZone, multi-sensor inspections (MSI) combine conventional qualitative CCTV with synchronized laser and sonar dimension information. This unique full 360 degree quantitative view of the pipeline can help to pinpoint which lines in your system require immediate attention, thanks to accurate, quantified issues with corrosion, debris and ovality.
RedZone’s MD Profiler continues the progression of industry leading quantitative assessment equipment. Utilizing the standard battery and on-board computers, the MD Profiler system is capable of 3 continuous hours of inspection, or over a mile (2 kilometers), as the unit is limited only by the length of tether available.
With RedZone’s proven MSI technology, the Fort Worth Water Department has saved $2.9 million in large diameter cleaning cost to date. It is estimated that the ICAP (Interceptor Condition Assessment Program) methodology of “inspect-to-clean” will result in a savings of $15.2 million in cleaning costs over the six year program.
