CISBOT - Cast Iron Joint Sealing Robot

Game Changer Category: Construction, Mining, Energy Solution

Operating in 100 percent live gas environments, CISBOT drills and injects anaerobic sealant into every joint in the gas main forming a seal that is proven by Cornell University studies to last for 50 years. This process stops gas leaks and proactively prevents gas leaks from forming – a priceless benefit to ensure the safety and well-being of the community and the environment.

Also, because of its small site footprint and ability to work underground, CISBOT nearly eliminates the public disruption often associated with typical utility maintenance. This non-intrusive work benefits residents and businesses because gas service remains online during the procedure. Furthermore, larger cast iron pipes are often in densely populated, traffic-sensitive locations, so CISBOT can increase the safety of the gas main with significantly less interruption to the daily activities of the community.
