Electromagnetic search and measuring system IMK-5

   Designation:
     The IMK-5 system is designed to search, determine coordinates and places of insulation damaging of main oil-, gas and products pipelines and other underground communications. Owing to the portability it allows the quick and qualitative inspection of the territory before ground works start.   
    The system technical characteristics:
    – the system makes it possible to detect communications at a depth to 5.0 m;
    – an error of depth location- not more than ± 0.1m at a depth to 1.0 m and not more than± 10% at a depth to 5.0 m;
    – the damaged insulation sites are found at a frequency of 10000.0 Hz with accuracy of ± 0.5 m at a depth to 1.0 m.
    Advantages of the system:
    – resistance to obstacles when other communications are present in the area of testing;
    – to compare with other analogs it possesses more functional possibilities and is more effective.
   The system can be applied in:     oil and gas industry , municipal cervices, power generating industry, communication system etc.
    System IMK-5 proved to be effective when performing works at “Lvivgaz” company, “Rivnegaz”, “Tysmennytsiagaz” companies , “Dubnenskyi” and “Bereznenskyi” firms.
