In the April 2015 issue of Trenchless Technology Magazine, ULC Robotics’ CISBOT (Cast Iron Joint Sealing Robot)and CCTV inspection systems, such as the DWX200 Dewatering Camera, were featured in a new installation of the Trenchless Technology Innovations feature. George Ragula, past chairman of the North American Society of Trenchless Technology, updated readers on Gas Industry Innovations and ULC’s products were a highlight of his update.
“The CISBOT is a method of repairing multiple cast iron joints under live gas conditions out of a single opening without interrupting customer’s service. Tap into main and you are able to go about 1,200 ft total — 600 ft in two directions — and seal about 80 to 100 joints in a single excavation using CISBOT.”
“ULC Robotics is a leader in CCTV inspection, dewatering of gas mains and CISBOT for the internal repair of cast iron gas mains. CISBOT has been used extensively by Con Edison and National Grid and PSE&G leads the nation in using CCTV inspection from a gas utility perspective, but there are many more routinely doing it throughout the United States.”
