The CableSniffer™ continues to be No.1 in locating faults in underground LV cables fast.
25 May 2022
Instead of relying on exploratory excavations, it samples and analyses the gases emitted when cable insulation starts to break down, via a series of 8mm bore holes. Faults can normally be located in under an hour and to an accuracy better than 1 metre, eliminating the need for multiple exploratory excavations. Normally, the highest concentration of gas is directly above the fault. Business Benefits -Average 50% cost savings on fault location and re-instatement -Even greater savings where there are time-based penalties for disrupting highways -Under one-hour typical time to locate each fault – a fraction of the time taken with conventional methods.
