Tracing


Tracer Wire

Copperhead High Strength (HS) Tracer Wire combines the strength of fully annealed high-carbon steel with the conductivity and corrosion resistance of solid copper. The result is an industry exclusive in strength and reliability. Copperhead High Strength reinforced tracer wire is an engineering breakthrough for the underground construction industry and a perfect all-around tracer wire for open cut applications. Spools available in 500 ft, 1000 ft & 2500 ft rolls.

Copperhead SuperFlex Tracer Wire offers all the field-proven advantages of original Copperhead products. Designed for light duty open cut applications, Superflex acts and feels like solid copper, yet offers superior strength and durability. Spools available in 500 ft, 1000 ft & 2500 ft rolls.

Copperhead's SoloShot Extra High Strength (EHS) Tracer Wire is engineered specifically to handle the rigors of directional drilling. Copperhead’s SoloShot Extra High Strength (EHS) reinforced tracer wire has six times the breaking strength of solid copper in directional drill applications. SoloShot EHS outperforms conventional copper wire in both performance and cost. SoloShot EHS represents another breakthrough in the trenchless industry. Don’t tolerate the hassle and cost associated with running multiple wires and costly re-bores due to broken tracer wire. Spools available in 500 ft, 1000 ft & 2500 ft rolls.

Copperhead's SoloShot Xtreme Tracer Wire is a 7×7 stranded copper-clad steel tracer wire engineered to withstand the volatile environment of pipe bursting and critical bores. With a breaking strength of 4,700 lbs., compared to 3/16 stranded stainless steel (commonly used for pipe bursting), SoloShot Xtreme is nearly 30 percent stronger and is 3 1/2 times more conductive making your locates more accurate. SoloShot Xtreme provides you with the strongest, most reliable tracer wire available. Plus, because SoloShot Xtreme is so durable, it’s the only tracer wire needed for bursting and critical boring applications. Spools available in 500 ft, 1000 ft & 2500 ft rolls.

Locking Connectors

Copperhead's SnakeBite Locking Connectors make connecting tracer wire easy. SnakeBite's exclusive 90-degree Twist Lock design means you simply insert the wires, twist 90 degrees and the SnakeBite connector is locked. Done! It's that simple! No need to strip the wires! Using SnakeBite connectors reduces installation time and lowers our overall labour costs.

Copperhead's DryConn 3-way Direct Bury Lug eliminates the need to cut the main line and installs in less than a minute. This connector is pre-filled with dielectric silicone sealant that never hardens making it waterproof and corrosion proof.  The improved outer lid locks down in three places keeping your connection free from contaminants and the user friendly design prevents cuts and handling discomfort.

Copperhead's DryConn Direct Bury Twist-on is also offered with or without strain relief which both offer the same water proof and corrosion proof benefits as the Direct Bury Lug by being pre-filled with dielectric silicone sealant. Both Twist-on connectors are one piece for easy installation and work perfectly for splicing lines.

Locators

The Copperhead ViperMag Pipe and Cable Locator is a general purpose locator used to detect buried pipe and cable services in a variety of situations. The ViperMag has achieved a compact and lightweight design without compromising strength and performance to meet the requirements of those wishing to detect the presence of active power cables, metal locating, and tracing all types of pipes and cables. The ViperMag transmitter can supply a very useful 1 watt signal power. Signal application can be either direct connection or induction if there is no access point. With the addition of the optional signal clamp the ViperMag transmitter can be applied to the target line no matter what the situation.

Detectable Tape

Pro-Line’s Detectable Marking Tape is used for detecting, locating, identifying, and protecting buried utility lines for gas, water, sewer, telecommunication, and electrical markets. The width of tape used, is determined by the size of, and depth at which the underground utility line is buried. The depth at which detectable tape is buried, is determined by the width of the tape used. This product is currently available in Western Canada.

  • DETECT: Aluminum core is detected through means of inductive locating.
  • LOCATE: Line is located and marked after inductive locating is performed.
  • IDENTIFY: Utility type is identified by both the APWA color-code and utility legend printed on the marking tape.
  • PROTECT: Detectable tape works 24 hours a day and year round, even if tape is not inductively located during excavations, the tape provides a "stop-sign" effect that is highly visible.
