Warning and Detecta Tapes

Detecta Tape no. 10

with two Stainless Steel wires

 

Product features 

  • extruded PE foil 0,15 mm
  • with two Stainless Steel wires 1.4301 / DIN 17440 of 0,5 mm, laminated between 2 layers of PE foil 
  • colourfast, resistant to extreme high and low temperatures and humidity 
  • print sealed with film transparent and scratch resistant film lamination, remains permanently legible, even in aggressive soils
  • any text in any language can be printed
  • undulating wires permit 25% expansion before breakage by a mechanical excavator as well as being tear resistant during earth movements
  • Standards: FTZ 548464TV1, DIN 54841-3 (draft), BS 2782, BS 5252 and ESI 12-23

 

Connection

  • with crimp connectors
  • insulating of wires at junction points is not required

 

Location 

  • measuring is always possible- even if the tape is unexpectedly ruptured by a mechanical excavator
  • even if the tape is interrupted, detection is possible by tracing the signal from either end to the point of breakage
  • for inductive (galvanic) detection common devices with 1 Watt or more are sufficient
  • for inductive (galvanic) coupling lower outputs will suffice, the distance the signal will travel under the inductive coupling method depends on the power output of the generator
  • the tape can be precisely located from a distance of over 100 meters, using either the conductive or inductive method of coupling to the signal generator

You may or may not know about the law requiring you
call for utility locating before you do any excavation.   

The pictures below are a result of a guy using a post hole
digger without calling for "dial -before-you-dig" and he hit
an underground high-pressure country gas pipe.

They never did find the guy…

It pays to check…

Detecta Tape no. 20

with three integrated copper wires

 

Product features 

  • extruded PE foil 0,15 mm
  • with three insulated 0,9 mm copper wires for the active location and examination of the continous connection of the whole length of the tape, laminated between two layers of PE foils
  • the three undulating wave formed copper wires permit 25% expansion before breakage by a mechanical excavator as well as being tear-resistant during earth movements
  • print sealed with transparent and scratch resistant film lamination remains permanently legible
  • colourfast, resistant to extreme heat, low temperatures and humidity, even in aggressive soils
  • multifunctional and precise detection with all common detecting devises
  • approximately ten times better conductivity than with stainless steel wires and giving extremely good results of the VFL* method, even over long distances
  • any text in any language can be printed

 

*VFL = Very Low Frequency 

 


 

 

Connection

  • with crimp connectors 
  • insulating of wires at junction points is not required

 

Location 

  • laying the tape approx. 50 cm above the pipe or cable assures accurate measurement of the depth
  • accurate results possible even under difficult conditions such as low wave levels, trenches less than 60 cm wide or when metallic cables or pipes are in close proximity
