Pipe-work Leak Detection
JD7 have developed an internal pipe inspection system for small and large bore pipe systems. This system is extremely advanced in the way it can be utilised within live water mains. Benefits include inspection and leak identification with minimal or no disruption to customers or supporting systems.
A surface sampling technique has been developed where a spherical cutter allows a scoop of material to be removed from an in-service component. The technique utilizes an exceptionally fine cutting process, which removes the minimum material required and leaves a very low stress concentration point at the sample site.
