ULC Robotics Deploys Enhanced CISBOT Technology to Prevent Gas Line Leaks
HAUPPAUGE, NY: ULC Robotics, a developer of pipeline inspection camera systems for gas utilities has announced that it is using advanced Cast Iron Joint Sealing Robot (CISBOT) technology into a live, large diameter cast iron gas main for National Grid in the Bay Ridge area.
The technology helps gas utilities in repairing the joints prone to leakage by drilling deep into the joints and injects into these joints a sealant using traditional method. This is done mainly using the robot that enters into the gas main through the excavation and seals up to 1,500 feet – or three average city blocks – of gas main line.
The process is performed without much excavation and disturbance to the public. Not just this, it also benefits them with intact services without involving much costs. ULC’s advanced robotic system makes quiet work of critical repairs to National Grid’s gas distribution system.
“Gas utilities go to great lengths to make pipeline safety and reliability a top priority. CISBOT technology helps gas utilities such as National Grid maintain the safety and reliability of large diameter cast iron gas mains by renewing the joints, where methane gas is most likely to escape,” says Gregory Penza, President, ULC Robotics.
