Flux-Gate Gradiometer:

This is a hand held unit specially designed to locate “Pathfinder” MagneticPigs. The instrument consists of a flux-gate sensor tube, which is attached to the Electronics Head, which includes re-chargeable battery pack, video and audio alarm facility.

 The system is designed to detect distortions, either greater than or less than, in the Earth’s normal magnetic field . By this technology, a pipe inserted in the earth’s field will cause a displacement of the field. Therefore, a magnetic pig that causes magnetic saturation, is easily detected to a depth of 15 meters. This instrument may be used to locate pipelines, electric cables or monitor the pig’s passage at remote stations. It comes complete with a carrying case and additional battery pack.

 The effects of the earth's field are removed by the use of two sensors which measure the difference in magnetic field that occurs between the two end of the sensor housing, in a uniform field no difference occurs. The gradiometer can detect gradients which are only 100,000 parts of the earth's normal magnetic field. (0.5 nano Tesla)
