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.
