Eastcom Provides Free Air Spade to Promote Safe Digging

Air Spade Giveaway

Eastcom partnered with Dig Safely New York to provide an Air Spade 2000 as a promotional giveaway during the recent Excavator Safety Seminars.  Nine seminars were held across the state of New York and a drawing was held to select a random winner from each seminar. The winner, Mickey DeCarlo from the Village of Rye Brook, NY was selected at random from the 9 finalists.  Larry Verga with Eastcom met with John Yehl from Dig Safely NY to provide the Air Spade on April 28th.

The Air Spade products use compressed air to assist in the safe excavation of utilities.  The supersonic output of the Air Spade makes for easy movement of earth and the best way to excavate safely around utility lines.

Eastcom offers a new product for Pipeline Operators: POINT GUARD

Point Guard offers patented sensor technology to help identify metal pipe.  Pipeline operators and maintenance crews can use the tool to confidently probe for metal pipe while mitigating any damage caused by probing to pipeline coating.   Crews use a standard probe rod and replace it with the Point Guard as soon as there is an indication of contact with an object.  Once the sensor at the tip of the Point Guard comes in close proximity of any metal, the indicator light illuminates – giving the operator the reassurance of an accurate location.  The Point Guard sensor will detect metal pipe through various coatings including wax, enamel and epoxy.  Markings on the Point Guard indicate depth of cover.
