In-situ Impact echo tests for buried pipe

I'm a student and I’m working on Impact Echo for pipes. I have some questions regarding in-situ testing of buried pipes. We are planning to do some field experiments on buried storm sewer and I was just wondering whether we could use our hand held equipment, which is labor-intensive, for the whole 1500 ft pipeline we are planning to test. There must be some scanner kind of small roller-mounted automated device which comprises of impactor(s), receiver which will be accompanied by data-acquisition system. I'm not sure where I can find such info. I’d very much appreciate if you could give some information, pointers where I can find such information.

Thanks in advance,
Chetana.

Another option is Olson Engineering. They have a device that can be used on curved surfaces, specifically for concrete pipes. The system is based on IE. I have not seen any soller sensors for concrete applications which could enhance IE testing.

oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field
