Live Gas Main Inspection: Key Benefits

EXPERIENCED CREW 

Our operator qualified crews bring years of experience and expertise in live gas distribution main cctv inspection to deliver high-quality assessments, feature identification, accurate reporting and detailed mapping. 

LEADING TECHNOLOGY 

Designed and engineered in-house for safe and reliable assessment of live gas mains, ULC’s range of purpose-built camera and crawler systems enable real-time inspection and locating of the gas main and features visible from inside the pipe.  

INDUSTRY EXPERTISE 

ULC’s team manages large scale inspection and locating programs to support poststorm emergency response, gas main replacement damage prevention and mapping to improve efficiency and safety while reducing costs. 

WHAT WE DO

ULC Robotics works with some of the largest gas networks to conduct live gas main inspection cctv services and deliver detailed reporting, accurate mapping anreal-time video.

Water Intrusion & Poor Pressure

Our crews help utilities avoid costly guesswork and quickly resolve water blockages by locating the low points where water in the main is blocking the flow of gas and by investigating and identifying the source of water infiltration.

Eliminate 3rd Party Damage

Using our specialized equipment, our teams
pinpoint the exact location of your mains along with all pipeline features—even those not traceable by traditional locating methods. The resulting mark out provides the road map construction crews need to ensure project efficiency and safety. ULC manages large scale programs in conjunction with cast iron replacement programs and Aldyl-A replacement programs.

Pre Rehabilitation Mapping

Prior to gas main rehabilitation using CISBOT, lining and insertion, our crews identify and mark out features such as offsets, drip pots, valves and protruding services that might delay the project, increase project costs or even damage material during the rehabilitation process. Data delivered by ULC Robotics improves project planning, helps determine more accurate project costs and improves go / no-go decision making.

Identify, Inspect & Locate Features
Utilities have an increasing need to identify and inspect features in gas mains. ULC’s crews provide detailed video and mapping of features such as couplings, stub services, tees and valves. From within the gas main, our camera and crawler systems can deliver a detailed visual assessment of PE pipework to identify imperfections that may not be visible from outside the pipe.

Unlocatable PE
ULC Robotics is helping utilities resolve challenges around unlocatable PE gas mains by providing a means of locating and mapping the main and all features visible from within the pipe. Our crews provide pinpoint accurate markout for excavation crews or accurate utility mapping so utilities can update mapping.
