|Publication Date:||1 October 1988|
This chapter outlines the essential elements of unidirectional and bidirectional conventional pipe provers and provides design, installation, and calibration details for the types of pipe provers that are currently in use. The pipe provers discussed in this chapter are designed for the running start-and-stop procedures described in Chapter 4.1. These provers consist of a pipe section through which a displacer travels and activates detection devices before stopping at the end of the run as the stream is diverted or bypassed.
