Bar Wrapped Pipe

Bar-wrapped concrete cylinder pipe (AWWA C303 standard) is a composite pipe consisting of a steel cylinder helically wrapped with a mild steel rod and lined and coated with dense cement mortar.  Using our Remote Field Testing (RFT) technology and complementary tools such as CCTV and LiDAR, PICA can detect the following:

  • Cylinder corrosion
  • Corroded/broken reinforcing bars
  • Out-of-round and denting
  • Liner spalling
