Learn About the New SL-RAT – The Sewer Line Rapid Assessment Tool

The Avanti Company is dedicated to providing customers with the latest and most cutting-edge Water and Wastewater Products on the market. That’s why we’re proud to introduce the much-anticipated SL-RAT, a Sewer Line Rapid Assessment Tool that provides quick and easy sewer line blockage assessment with optimal efficiency.

The state-of-the-art SL-RAT is specially designed for the purposes of rapidly detecting blockages in your network. Thus it is rugged, compactable, and lightweight, making it ideal for fast and mobile deployment.

The SL-RAT is comprised of two components – the Transmitter (or TX unit) and the Receiver (or RX unit) – which are uniquely configured to work together. The TX provides the active acoustic transmission through the pipe while the RX serves as the microphone and signal processor, listening and interpreting the received acoustic signal and processing the blockage assessment result.

The SL-RAT can offer accurate results in less than three minutes, with the ability to inspect over 10,000 feet a day. Additionally, each SL-RAT component is equipped with GPS and the ability to communicate between the TX and RX via RF, thus providing your organization with first-rate data labeling, data registration, and test validation capabilities. Moreover, thanks to its no-flow contact design, the meter has an operating cost of one-tenth to one-twentieth that of the common CCTV alternative.

Thanks to SL-RAT’s cutting-edge engineering, wastewater utilities can more easily implement a more cost-effective condition-based maintenance strategy. Other flexible applications include focus cleaning efforts, pre-maintenance inspection, the elimination of repeat and downstream overflows, and more.

In short, the SL-RAT offers many great solutions and advantages over alternative assessment tools. To learn more about this or other water and wastewater flow products, call the Avanti Company 800-284-5231 or email info@avanticompany.com.
