Ovality measurements can identify potential risks to a pipe’s integrity, making them a vital part of sewer inspection and maintenance. With a laser profiler and WinCan on hand, wastewater teams can easily gather information about a pipe’s diameter as part of a routine inspection. Inspection teams simply need to gather media, calibrate the Laser Scan module in WinCan and record the data.

The ovality report gives a clear overview of the most critical areas of the pipe, capturing snapshots of these areas to give a better understanding of where the problem may lie. The ovality report also gives in-depth visualizations and measurements to help engineers determine the likelihood of the pipe needing repair. 

Using the time-distance file created during the profiling process, WinCan is also able to build a 3D representation of the pipe with heat mapping to indicate areas of severe ovality. This visualization is accessible through WinCan 3D, and it can give additional insight into potential obstacles rehab teams might encounter.
