Autonomous leak detection and inspection device

MTA Pipe-Inspector is an autonomous leak detection and inspection device that can be deployed into live mains whether they are potable water, waste, hydro or industrial.

MTA Pipe-Inspector allows the complete optical and acoustic inspection of transport pipelines working with all pipe materials and without interrupting operation. The continuous inspection of long sections up to 50km length is only made possible by the cable-less operation of MTA Pipe-Inspector. MTA Pipe-Inspector floats battery powered in the pipeline fluid providing continuous data from inside for determining the pipeline condition without excavations or pipe cuttings.

Once deployed the equipment follows the flow taking HD optical and acoustic readings from a cable-less platform. The equipment is suitable for pipe diameters from 100mm up to 3000mm and can complete sections up to 50km with a single deployment. Once completed the data is uploaded and assessed by the team at MTA. We are then able to work with our clients to prioritise their investment preventing leakage, turbidity and reducing the frequency of bursts.

  • Optical examination
  • Sound recording for detection of smallest leakages with pinpoint accuracy down to 10l/h at 5bar operating pressure
  • Pressure recording along the entire pipe length
  • Turbidity measurement (optional)
  • Conductivity measurement (optional)
  • Temperature measurement
  • Length measurement including meter display
  • Video in HD-quality
