The Automatic Lateral Detector sensor from RapidView IBAK mounts on the front armature of GATOR cutters, and allows the user to locate lateral connections through the pipe liner before reinstatement. Using a small microwave emitter and easy-to-use software, it locates the lateral behind the liner and automatically marks the center of the lateral for reinstatement. The system can be operated in a completely automatic mode, finding the laterals even if a pre-inspection was not completed prior to lining. The sensor allows rehabilitation companies to avoid costly and time-consuming mistakes when reinstating laterals. 800/656-4225, www.rapidview.com; Booth #2205.
