The Need For Laser Profiling
With developers now regularly choosing to install PVC sewer systems, the warping and deformation of pipes is a likely occurrence.
Laser Profiling enables us to expose pipe deformation within a new drainage system, that would be difficult to identify on standard CCTV surveys, allowing water companies to easily ensure standards are met, before adoption.
Laser profiling can be used to determine precise measurements about the current condition of a new drainage system. Once established, this information can be used accordingly, for example to determine whether the pipe is of a high enough standard for adoption by water companies.
Laser Profiling Process
DrainsAid’s iPEK Laser ShapeScanner can be utilised in circular pipes ranging from 150mm to 700mm in diameter.
The device is easily attached to one of our Rovian crawler cameras, offering the ability to traverse the pipe and provide a cross sectional profile, without the need for man entry.
This allows our advanced WinCan Laser Scan software to build a three dimensional digital pipe profile, allowing the determination of the pipe’s shape, capacity and ovality.
Overall reports can assist a water company when undertaking investigations to assess whether a new sewer system meets Section 104 or 102 adoption regulations.
