Title (EN) SIGNAL TAPE
(FR) SIGNAL TAPE
Abstract:
(EN) The invention apparatus for and a method of creating a localized warning to prevent damage to buried pipeline and other buried infrastructure using a new type of marker tape with the trade name signal tape® [hereinafter referred to as "Signal Tape"]. The disclosed Signal Tape may incorporate tracer wire and RFID technology to aid in the remote location of the Signal Tape and, thus, the buried infrastructure. Signal Tape may also incorporate Litz wire for use as tracer wire within the Signal Tape. The Signal Tape is designed to be buried just below the surface of the ground and directly over a buried infrastructure such as a pipeline. The Signal Tape incorporates a strong core material which permits the Signal Tape to be bodily removed from the soil when it is struck by excavation equipment.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil et un procédé de création d'un avertissement localisé pour empêcher une détérioration d'un pipeline enfoui et d'une autre infrastructure enterrée à l'aide d'un nouveau type de bande d'avertissement portant le nom commercial Signal Tape® [ci-après désignée par « Signal Tape »]. Le Signal Tape de l'invention peut incorporer un fil traceur et une technologie RFID pour aider à localiser à distance l'emplacement du Signal Tape et, ainsi, celui de l'infrastructure enterrée. Le Signal Tape peut également incorporer un fil de Litz destiné à être utilisé comme fil traceur à l'intérieur du Signal Tape. Le Signal Tape est conçu pour être enterré juste au-dessous de la surface du sol et directement au-dessus d'une infrastructure enterrée telle qu'une canalisation. Le Signal Tape incorpore un matériau de cœur résistant qui permet de retirer entièrement le Signal Tape du sol lorsqu'il est touché par un équipement d'excavation.
