  • Enhanced Durability: Weighing 52 kg (115 lbs), the DVP.12 is built to withstand the demands of rigorous pipeline inspection operations.
  • Extensive Applicability: Similar to previous models, the DVP.12 can navigate pipelines with a minimum internal diameter of 75% of their outer diameter.
  • Superior Maneuverability: The DVP.12 maintains exceptional maneuverability with a minimum bend radius of 1.5 times the pipeline's outer diameter (1.5D).
  • Extended Operation: The DVP.12 is equipped for prolonged inspections, offering a maximum inspection time of at least 72 hours.
  • Long-lasting Battery Life: The low-frequency transmitter of the DVP.12 ensures uninterrupted operation for extended periods with a minimum battery life of 240 hours.
  • Exceptional Inspection Range: The DVP.12 can effectively inspect vast stretches of pipelines, covering a maximum distance of at least 100 km (62.1 miles).
Compatible Pipeline Characteristics:
  • Diameter: The DVP.12 is ideally suited for pipelines with an outer diameter of up to 325 mm. Refer to the manufacturer's specifications for the full range of compatible pipe sizes.
  • Environment: The DVP.12 can be deployed in pipelines transporting either gas or liquid.
  • Configuration: The DVP.12 seamlessly integrates with pipelines equipped with equal diameter T-junctions featuring grilles for smooth insertion and retrieval.
Operational Parameters:
