The award is for the latest innovative product to be released from JD7 known as the internal condition assessment tool ‘PipeScan +’ which has been piloted within Thames Water as part of the Morrisons Utilities JV over the last 6 months.

For its size and application, the PipeScan+ is the most advanced type of its kind in the world and will help guide the way condition assessment will be performed in the future due to its live insertion capability.The PipeScan+ has been piloted across pipework sizes from 4in. to 12in. diameter of varying ages and conditions with scanning resolutions down to as low as 5mm linear resolution performed. The linear resolution is programed depending upon the volume of data required of the asset. This ability takes the PipeScan+ into a league of its own with regards to measurement capabilities and not just performing average wall thickness assessments.

Benefits of the PipeScan+ include:

  • Capital investment deferral
  • Mains to be renewed at optimal time
  • Prevention of catastrophic failure
  • Understand the condition of your assets
  • Build you own pipe failure time line

JD7 Ireland (WaterWorx Ltd) complete LDS1000 project in Dublin

The LDS1000 platform was used to successfully complete a large diameter trunk main leak detection and condition assessment in Dublin (Ireland) where several leaks were identified. The LDS1000 platform was required due to the low flows along the pipeline and visual assessment was required as well as hydrophone assessments so validation of leaks could be performed visually. Visual validation of all leaks was deemed critical to the project.

Benefits of the LDS1000. The LDS1000 has proven time and time again across the World that it is now the major platform in the trunk main leak detection and condition assessment world. An increasing number of companies and asset owners are realising the importance of validating leak noises with high quality visual assessment images. Daniel Poyntz Operations Director for WaterWorx Ltd quotes ‘This is one of the main reasons the LDS1000 is becoming so popular within today’s industry as it gives owners the confidence and validation to make informed decisions on their assets based upon the level of data our technology provides’.
