sonar head must be submerged below water for the resonator to be active.
As long as the head is submerged, profiles of the entire pipeline diameter
can be gathered regardless of flow height. Profiles of pipe taken through
air, will be exaggerated measurements due to the speed of sound through
air, as compared to water.
sonar resonator must be a minimum of 5 inches away from object it will
profile. This determines the minimum pipe size of 10 inch, however 12 inch
is recommended if debris or protrusions are thought to exist.
recognition is based on whether sound can pass through the defect. If an
open break, greater than 3mm in width, is present the sonar will locate
this defect. However, if the break is not open or is cracked the sonar
will not see this because sound will not pass through it. This same
concept allows our operators to measure debris and sediment depth in
pipeline and shafts.
only known limitations of the sonar profiling unit is high concentrations
of suspended solids in the water filling the pipelines. For example, paper
pulp waste is too dense for the sonar signal to pass through and reflect
off of the pipe walls.
Visual makes every report package, for every service, user friendly, and
easy to read. Sonar profiling opens many doors for reporting
possibilities. With the unique aspect of acquiring data in a measurement
format, profiles can be plotted in a three dimensional plane. Information
about profile location will give us the X and Y coordinates, and the
footage from the entry point gives us the Z coordinate. This method allows
us to not only supply hard copy report, but also supply electronic
reporting that can be opened in almost any computer aided design software.
Opening the report in such software allows the customer to take additional
measurements or view each profile independently.
has also provided customer with customized reports to better suit their
needs. For an inspection where debris and sediment location is the goal,
we can supply a report showing the profile of the sediment for the entire
lateral length. With the assistance of R&R Visualís computer
programming department, we can generate nearly any report that you desire.
All reports are supplied in a hard copy format, as well as on a CD-ROM in
an electronic format. We support all popular computer formats available
