Variable Geometry Crawler – ULC Robotics, Inc.

The Variable Geometry Crawler (VGC), with different models for small and large-sized pipe (20” and greater considered large) is a unique internal video inspection crawling system. It consists of platform crawler, launch tube system, remote control system/monitor and can be inserted through a 4” opening for the large crawler and 3” opening for the 12” and 18” small crawlers.

Casing Camera aka Annular Space Direct Inspection Robot – ULC Robotics, Inc.

The Casing Camera which is now equipped as a multi-functional annual space inspection robot uses a magnetic crawler and drives along casing to get direct visual, moisture, spot wall thickness and inclinometer measurements within the annual space. Its high resolution camera can detect anomalies on the external surface of the carrier pipe. The miniature robot must be inserted into the annular space after removal of the link seal.

PE Piping Standards – TEJ Group

The PE Piping Standards project had a phase of work that focused on UV outdoor storage. This work addressed the practical conditions of PE pipe being stored outdoors for prolonged periods of time. PE pipe manufacturer technical literature state that additive UV stabilizer provide protection for outdoor storage in direct sunlight. NYSEARCH performed testing to confirm UV protection of aged PE pipe samples obtained directly from gas utility outdoor pipe yards. The TEJ Group orchestrated the testing that concluded that aged PE pipe samples did possess adequate material integrity suitable for installation. The TEJ Group presented these results to ASTM D2513 for adaptation, now reflected in the latest 2013 revision. Most importantly to gas utility standards is the forthcoming revisions to PHMSA code Part192 to include the updated ASTM D2513 UV exposure outdoor storage conditions sometime in 2014.

Non-Interrupt Service Transfer Tee (NIST) – Elster Perfection Corp.

Non-interruptible PE Service transfer fittings were designed to easily and safely transfer 1” polyethylene gas service lines from an existing main intended for retirement to a new main without interrupting the flow of gas to customers. It is accomplished using a special PermaLock mechanical tapping fitting to complete the Non-Interrupt service transfer.
