Company: Latrobe University / Western Water

Technology: Pipe Probe Penetration Robot (PPPR)

Country of origin: AU

The PPPR measures corrosion and degradation within sewer mains more reliably than conventional CCTV inspection. The robot probes the pipe and measures the amount of forced used and penetration into the pipe to determine the extend of degradation. The tool aims to minimize capital investment and service interruption by rehabilitating or replacing targeted sections of pipe.
