MBW'S VEU highlighted in Pipeline & Gas Journal magazine
The article's author interviewed several utilities who used the VEU to help solve a problems with migrating gas and pinpointing leaks. The article can be found on the Pipeline & Gas Journal website.
MBW's Utility Division is a fast growing part of our business. We are attracted to the utility industry's wealth of opportunities for product improvement and innovation. Over the past 5 years we have identified and moved forward on a number of R&D projects intended to address problems for which there was pressing need, but no acceptable means of resolution. These have been stimulating opportunities for a company that derives real satisfaction from solving technical problems and/or developing altogether new technologies.
The Soil Pick is a pneumatic soil excavation tool that locates and exposes buried underground utilities without risk of damage. Lightweight (6.5 lbs.), with zero hand/arm vibration, non-sparking and dielectric, the Soil Pick is an ergonomic and safe tool for use in gas enriched and high voltage environments.
The Airammer isn't for everyone... but it's perfect for utility crews, municipalities and contractors with ready access to an air compressor. Eliminates maintenance problems associated with gasoline engines, produces comparatively low level of hand/arm vibration, low noise level and non-sparking operation. Provides high performance compaction over full range of backfill soils.
Seismic technology supervises, or manages, the compaction process. Advises compactor operator when he has achieved optimal results and can terminate compaction. No laboratory soil analysis or instrument calibration required. The Soil Compaction Supervisor 2 (SCS2) self-calibrates on each new lift of soil. Documents key data on lift-by-lift basis for supervisory review and regulatory authorities.
MBW's Ergo-Tamp is a pneumatic pole tamper specifically designed to minimize hand/arm vibration. A patent pending vibration suppressor located at the hand-held end of the tool reduces hand/arm vibration between 50 and 70%, depending on conditions of compaction.
The MBW Vapor Extraction Unit (V.E.U.) removes residual gas quickly and safely, while monitoring the percent of gas in the moving air.
