EZ Drill
E-Z Drill offers a vertical drill tailored to gas utility companies. The Model 20 UTL saves valuable time and money by allowing companies to pinpoint the site of a gas leak without tearing out a significant stretch of roadway. The standard 18-inch drill depth can be significantly modified based on needs, with depths customized to several feet deep. Drill bit diameter ranges from 5/8 inch to 2 1/2 inches. A minimum of 100-cfm compressed air is required for operating the drill. Quick coupler air fittings make short work of repairs, and a quick-release bit guide also saves time. The drill weighs just 207 pounds and is supported by a 29-inch wheel base. 800.272.0121,

Moffatt Enterprises
Find a leak in less than 30 seconds before it is buried, without pressure by testing each pipe joint as it is laid. An ultrasonic transmitter is used in coordination with an ultrasonic detector to find the leak. The detector converts inaudible ultrasonic signals into audible tones and amplifies them for ease of detection. By placing the transmitter on the inside of a pipe or test item, the signal will seek out and penetrate any hole in the pipe or joint. 541.548.1144
