Trident Acoustic Pinger
The Trident series Acoustic Pingers have been developed by Propipe Limited for use with pipeline pigs for identification and tracking or locating. As standard, Trident Pingers can produce up to 20W of acoustic power with a specified range of frequency to maximise detection distance.
Trident pingers require the pipeline to be flooded in order for the signal to be transmitted and this acoustic signal provides the information to identify the location of the pig.
Pinger repetition rate, power output, pulse length and battery life can be configured to suit the requirements of the project without compromising acoustic signal strength or pig design.
Multiple acoustic pingers can be used in a single pig train or in pipelines of close proximity. This is achieved by configuring the frequencies to ensure safe separation.
Mounting / Activation
Each Trident Pinger comes complete with a dedicated mounting system ensuring safe and secure fitment to the pipeline pig.
Activation of the acoustic signal is achieved upon contact by water (water contact switch) or mechanical switch (prior to loading).
SMART Ping Facility
Trident Pingers can also be incorporated into other products providing a dual rate pinger. The acoustic pinger is connected to the product through a cable and can provide a switching function, which automatically doubles the repetition rate.
