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.
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.
ULC’s team manages large scale inspection and locating programs to support post–storm emergency response, gas main replacement damage prevention and mapping to improve efficiency and safety while reducing costs.
Diameter Range: 24″-48″ / 609+mm | Applications: Cast Iron, Steel
The successful delivery of insertion projects involving large diameter medium pressure mains are often complicated by internal seals and obstacles which may prevent the insertion process or damage newly inserted PE pipe. The M1 Live Gas Main Inspection Crawler System navigates past these internal seals and other obstacles to deliver comprehensive visual pre-insertion data that minimizes excavation, improves project efficiency and enables more accurate project cost projections.
Diameter Range: 18″-48″ / 450+mm | Applications: Cast Iron, Steel
The Large Variable Geometry Crawler (VGC) provides gas utilities with live, high-resolution video inspection of large diameter steel or cast iron gas mains ranging in diameter from 18″ up to 48″. Using the Large VGC, utilities can assess the conditions of their mains as well as locate cracks, damaged pipe, unknown branches, service tees, valves, fittings and water intrusion or debris. Pipelines can be inspected without the hassle and costs of taking a main out of service.
Diameter Range: 12″-16″ / 315-400mm | Applications: Plastic, Cast Iron, Steel
ULC Robotics’ Small Variable Geometry Crawler (VGC) provides gas companies with live, high-resolution video inspection of medium diameter steel or cast iron gas mains. Using the Small VGC, gas companies can assess the conditions of their mains as well as locate cracks, damaged pipe, unknown branches, service tees, valves, fittings and water intrusion or debris. This inspection is performed while the main remains live without any interruptions in gas service.
Diameter Range: 2″-12″ / 63-315mm | Applications: Plastic, Cast Iron, Steel
The PRX250 Live High Pressure Gas Main Camera Inspection System is the most comprehensive, innovative live gas main camera system to provide gas networks with the highest quality, most cost effective and reliable pipeline inspection possible. The use of our PRX250 system is proven to provide significant cost savings, improved safety, increased efficiency and higher customer satisfaction.
ULC Pipeline Robotics works with some of the largest gas networks to conduct cctv inspections of live gas mains and services to deliver detailed reporting, accurate mapping and real-time video. Click through each icon to learn how gas utilities are utilizing our services to resolve issues, aid in maintenance activity and eliminate damages.
Avoid costly guesswork and quickly resolve water blockages
Our crews accurately mark out all of the gas main features
Mapping provides a dependable roadmap for rehabilitation projects
High-quality video and accurate mapping of pipeline features
Visually inspect features in real-time from within the main
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.
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.
ULC deploys propriety live gas main camera systems to visually identify all features in the pipe and mark out the location of the pipe and its features on the street surface. The highly accurate mark out services provide a roadmap for utilities to avoid accidental damage to gas mains and features with confidence and knowledge of what’s below ground.Discover the Benefits of In-Pipe Locating
