Carylon Purchases Pipeline Asset Management And Investigative Technologies

Carylon Corporation, a North American comprehensive environmental maintenance service provider, has purchased several state-of-the-art pipeline asset management and investigative technologies from JD7 that allow Carylon to inspect and conduct condition assessments in live pressure water mains across the United States.

“We are excited about partnering with JD7 because we determined their water main inspection and leak detection technology is cutting edge. We feel that between their new technology and our existing relationships in the sewer business, we have the opportunity to successfully enter and grow the water main inspection marketplace for years to come,” said Marcie Hemmelstein, CEO, Carylon.

Initially, JD7’s LDS 1000 and Investigator systems are being offered through Carylon’s 30-plus locations across the United States to assist water utilities and municipalities with managing their water assets.

“Not knowing the current internal state of pipeline infrastructure makes it difficult to make educated plans to restore existing pipework. This is where the LDS 1000 and Investigator will come in to play for Carylon Corporation and their customers,” said Tom Bowman, director of Sales and Technology Licensing, JD7.

The Investigator is a pressurized pipe inspection system with the capabilities of being launched into the distribution system from fire hydrants, while under live, working pressure, in service. Similar to the Investigator, the LDS 1000 is designed for larger-diameter pipelines (12 inch and large trunk and transmission mains).

Together, the systems aim to drive down the cost of pipeline maintenance and operation by ensuring that the right amount of a budget is being invested in the necessary areas at the right time. (800) 621-4342,
