Radiodetection RD500 locates and traces buried plastic/concrete water pipes

How does the Radiodetection RD500 work?

The RD500 is supplied as two parts:

  • The TransOnde Transmitter fits to a fire hydrant, meter base or tap
  • The hand-held Receiver traces buried pipe away from the TransOnde

The TransOnde applies a distinctive wave signal along the pipe that is located by the seismic sensor in the receiver. The signal is then amplified to provide a response on the RD500 meter and via the headphones.

 

Radiodetection RD500 Performance

The RD500 gives its best performance locating a single pipe running under grass or soil.  Between 30 psi/2 bar and 75 psi/5 bar water pressure and adequate flow, the receiver will trace the line over distances up to 150 meters.

Locate resolution is 25% of depth along the length of the trace with the pipe at depths down to 2 meters / 6 foot.

Locating may be reduced when the pipe runs under pavement or concrete. The TransOnde pressure wave signal is dissipated, therefore the receiver peak response is spread over a wider area.

Locate range may be reduced at the point where the pipe goes into a tee or joins a larger pipe, the TransOnde pressure wave signal is either split or reduced.
