The CD52 Bandit provides quick and easy non-intrusive pig passage detection of any pig moving between 0.01 and 20 meters per second. Non-intrusive means less maintenance and corrosion, and no possibilities of pipeline leaks. No hot-tapping required, the Bandit can be installed in minutes by any field technician.
The sensing means of the CD52 Bandit consists of a set of patented, non-intrusive proprietary noise-cancelling antennas invented by CDI specifically for pig passage detection. This antenna system gives the Bandit its ability to reject nearby magnetic noise and halt costly false-positive triggering. A small, safe, permanent magnet is all that is needed to put the Bandit to work.
Two standard D-cell alkaline batteries provide a full year of service, or 24VDC power may be used for indefinite operation. When triggered, the bandit records the date and time, and holds memory of up to 10 passages. The Bandit can be used in conjunction with existing SCADA systems.
The CD52 Bandit is available for onshore, offshore, and subsea applications. Variants include a portable unit, stainless steel, extended length, and flex cable. System certifications available are UL/CSA or ATEX/IECEx.
