The Technological Center for New Developments in Trenchless Technologies has a 3D gyroscope DuctRunner™ for mapping the routes of existing pipeline systems. The equipment provides precise three-dimensional mapping of pipeline routes, regardless of their material, and gives information about the presence of back slopes, collapse, horizontal shifts and other defects. It is especially suitable for mapping unclear, unknown routes of old pipelines, for restoring missing documentation, as well as for checking if newly installed pipelines correspond to the project documentation.
The measurement probe is fully autonomous; it can work at any depth and underneath any obstacles (rivers, railways, highways, buildings, etc.) and is not affected by electromagnetic or other interferences. Data is processed by a specialized software. Data obtained can be uploaded directly to a geographic information system (GIS).
