Rick, you mean to tell me you don't have at least one of these??
What is it you might ask. Performs a survey of the condition of coating on buried piping. I am looking at possibly as much as 4000 feet of pipe anywhere from 24" on down that may require scanning. This is all buried and we can't be digging up the whole property to check the condition of the pipe coating. This system seems to have been in use on petro and NG transmission lines for some time now. Can also be used to locate and map (using the built in GPS) lines without having to mark them out. The plot can then be downloaded to a computer and imported into AutoCAD or a GIS software package.
Works similar to a locator and signal generator but the receiver seems from the description to be more sophisticated.
Josh, you know anything about these systems? Any plans by RIDGID to include a GPS in their locators?
