SewerVUE selected for BCTIA “Most Promising Pre-Commercial Technology” awards
SewerVUE In-Pipe GPR Technology has been selected by the British Columbia Technology Innovation Council (BCTIA) as one of the three finalists for its prestigious “Most Promising Pre-Commercial Technology Awards”.
The 2010 finalists for the Technology Awards are forging new markets with technologies that allow inspectors to see into concrete to determine the state of aging infrastructure…
The SewerVUE Surveyor robot was on display from May 2-7 for the first time at the No-Dig 2010 trade show in Chicago, IL, giving the 1600 plus attendees a unique opportunity to see how Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) technology has been adapted to create “Pipe Penetrating Radar” or PPR.
As a result of the Trenchless Technology Conference and Trade Show, we were provided with additional uses for the technology. Because PPR can “see through” non-ferrous pipes it can detect the presence of metal outside a pipe wall, and can accurately locate various types of repair couplings or sleeves, as well as reinforcing in thrust restraint and anchor blocking. This will assist in identifying unforeseen obstacles encountered in pipe bursting projects. Another potential use for PPR will be to confirm grout placement in sliplining and segmented liner applications.
SewerVUE will be attending GPR 2010 in Lecce, Italy from June 21 to 25. GPR 2010 (International Conference on Ground Penetrating Radar) is the biannual conference for developers, manufacturers and users of GPR technology, and will be hosted at the University of Salento.
ABOUT SEWERVUE – SewerVUE’s patent-pending in-pipe GPR inspection technology gathers and interprets, on commercial scale, the data needed to assess pipe wall thickness, rebar cover, and outside voids. This critical information allows owners and consultants to model service life and plan remediation and rehabilitation of large diameter underground pipes and related infrastructure.
