RD500 Mechanical Transmitter Kit - Plastic Water Pipe Locator
Leaks in plastic water pipes are costly to repair, damaging to the environment, and time-consuming, and locating the pipe is often one of the first steps to repairing the leak.
While conventional Pipe and Cable Locators trace electromagnetic signals traveling on metal pipes and cables, those signals will not travel on non-metallic pipes.
In collaboration with Radiodetection, Schonstedt is thrilled to offer the RD500 Plastic Water Pipe Locator. Using a Pulse Transmitter, the RD500 Receiver traces vibrations traveling on plastic water pipes, over distances up to 500’ (150 m) and at depths up to 6’ (1.8 m). The RD500 is the accurate and easy way to quickly locate plastic water pipes.
How does the RD500 help find plastic pipes?
A Pulse Transmitter applies an acoustic signal to the end of a plastic pipe. The vibration radiates through the surrounding material and is detectable above ground through the RD500 Receiver, a sensitive “listening stick”. The closer to the pipe the operator gets, the louder the vibrations are.
