Do you know the risks of failing to detect a natural gas pipeline before digging?

Each year, hundreds of businesses, homes, and communities are affected by gas lines damaged or ruptured in the process of digging. Damaged pipelines can be costly and dangerous, presenting the risk for the loss of natural gas service to the surrounding community, extensive repair costs, and even the potential for explosions resulting in injuries or death.

These hazards make detection efforts vital when it comes to ensuring the safety and efficiency of a project. Line locators, such as the equipment manufactured by industry leaders like Vivax-Metrotech, play an integral role in scoping out lines that may not have been properly documented in the past or may have shifted underground over time. Proline Pipe Equipment is proud to supply and service leading pipeline detection equipment, including products like Vivax-Metrotech’s 810 Classic model.
