Glass-fibre Probe System
Electrical current cannot flow through non-metallic pipes, additional equipment must be used to locate such pipes. Glass-fibre probes and mini pig transmitters are used for this purpose. The glass-fibre probe, containing a continuous length of copper, is inserted into the pipe section to be located, connected to the signal generator and traced using the FERROPHON®. With this method it is possible to follow the route of the pipe.
