The GATOR Automatic Lateral Detector is a sensor that mounts on the front armature of RapidView IBAK 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.
