New to the market in 2018 is Amplus™, an advanced crawler system that can enter and inspect potable water pipelines of 200mm-diameter and above. The revolutionary surveying system, which was developed at APD's research and training centre in Derby can gather thousands of true wall and liner thickness measurements over lengths of up to 2,000m - 1,000m upstream and downstream from one insertion point. Amplus is not ‚ ow depend- ant and can also assess corrosion and calculate the asset life expectancy of pipeline infrastructure. The system can provide live-feed CCTV from its forward and reverse cameras, real-time hydrophone data for active long-distance leak detection and can track and locate from above-ground with its high-powered sonde. Used in conjunction with APD's soˆ ware, the Amplus crawler operates in pressures up to 10 bar. It can survey concrete, asbestos cement and plastic pipes visually and for leakage and additionally carry out non-destructive testing (NDT) condition assessment on all metallic pipes. APD's LDS 1000™ pipe inspection system for live insertion and inspection of potable water pipelines has already been deployed in at least 12 diŒ erent countries on over 1,000km of pipe infrasatructure. It is ideally suited for long-distance leak detection in pipes of up to 1,000m in length. The sensor-head combines live-feed CCTV, real-time hydrophone data-capture and includes a high-powered sonde, enabling pinpointing areas of interest as well as long-distance line-tracing. The system is suitable for under-pressure inspection and leak detection of larger pipes of 300mm-diameter and above. LDS 1000 can access pipes through valves as small as 50mm internal diameter and operate in pressures of up to 10 bar; it can be used in GPS tracking and plotting applications.

For instance, take their Perfect Manhole System, with a 120 year design life, that they introduced into the UK in October 2009 which is packed with benefits that satisfies designers, contrac- tors and operators alike. The use of integrally-cast high performance seals maintain water tightness and an integrity of joints in a system that has proven to decrease installation time dramatically and improve safety of site with no wet trades or confined space working and no requirement to form a concrete surround. Traditional manhole construction has required the base to be formed in-situ with the building of the channel, connections and benching occurring in the trench, oˆen in wet and unpleasant conditions. This process can take around 40 hours per manhole and is not always successful. By contrast, the Perfect Manhole design comprises of a precast concrete monolithic base unit, complete with channel and benching with bespoke combinations of inlet(s) and outlet(s) and a design of chamber ring with watertight, flexible joints and no liˆing holes, removing points of possible leakage. Both base units and chamber rings are made with thicker, stronger walls. The robust design means that the requirement for a concrete surround is eliminated, unless specifically required. The excavation is backfilled sooner and there is less need for men to work in confined spaces. This reduces time spent in the excavation, further improving site safety and reducing installation costs. Installation of the whole system is speedy and efficient, and follow-up opera- tions can start immediately. Contact: Marshalls CPM, Mells Road, Mells, Somerset.
