The two-page spread outlines the benefits of using ULC’s pipeline robotics and trenchless technologies to assess and rehabilitate pipelines for the utility industry.
The Next Generation of Pipeline Robotics
After an intensive two year research and development effort, ULC Robotics and SGN introduced the breakthrough CIRRIS XI™and CIRRIS XR™ Robotic System.
The system is comprised of two separate robots that work in tandem — the CIRRIS XI™ Inspection Robot and CIRRIS XR™ Repair Robot — to address all three risk factors. With the development of these robots, gas distribution networks are able to take on the challenges of internally assessing cast iron pipelines for wall thickness and stress, and sealing multiple joint types to stop and prevent gas leaks in large diameter cast iron mains.
