RECORE provides innovative, non-invasive pole inspection services utilizing ultrasonic technology. Our clients include a range of distribution utilities from investor owned utilities, to cooperatives, to municipal systems. Lean on our industry leading insight to manage your pole assets through our detailed analysis of the status and life expectancy of your assets.
WHAT WE DO
Inform utilities the status of their wood infrastructure to ensure safety to the public as well as the future life of in-service assets. We take a pole inspection program and transition the client to an asset management program creating planning opportunities for allocating cost in lieu of reactive replacements.
Ultrasonic pole testing technology has been used to inspect hundreds of thousands of poles. This process uses time of flight of ultrasound to determine if there are inconsistencies on the inside of a pole. A medical grade tomography image is created from the readings allowing the inspector to conduct targeted additional testing.
Our process enables the technology to find the poles in question by not damaging the poles that are good to excellent condition.
Every pole is exposed to a unique environment once it has been installed. These local conditions affect each pole in a unique way, so we believe that an auditable, standards based process is as important as technology for a successful, robust management program. Our technology applications track and report on key metrics surrounding our process including audit details such as inspector GPS location.
The results are comparable with a partial excavate plus sound & bore. Once a pole is identified to have an anomaly within the pole our inspector will bore into the area of concern for an in depth analysis to determine the extent of damage.
