Investigator

Asset Management and Leak Detection Tool

Pressurized pipe inspection and leak detection system. 

The system is used for 3” diameter pipework and above for complete asset condition examination and leak finding. Access through fire hydrants*, 1.5in. and above pressure fittings, air valves, gate valves and Quadrina’s at full mains pressure.

The JD7 Investigator is an asset management and leak detection tool for insertion into pressurized pipelines up to 16 bar. The system is mounted onto pipework through a selection of fittings and/or ‘hot tappings’. This process makes access into the pipework simple and cost effective.

Monitoring the real-time data captured by the camera and hydrophone sensor head allows the operator to understand internal pipework conditions and leakage points. The maximum distance for each insertion is 100m due to the length of the cable supplied with the system. During insertion the maximum distance achievable will be influenced by the pipe diameter, internal condition and number of bends present. The JD7 software is specific for the Investigator technology and is used to control the sensor head and view both video and acoustic results from live surveys.

The software displays video in a resizable window and also acoustic results in order of amplitude and frequency. The software also operates the sonde which is built into the camera sensor head. The system is compatible with JD7LiveFeed software for maximum performance
