Sondes Accessories

The Flexrod reel holds 197′ or 394′ (60m or 120m) fiberglass rods used for tracing pipes and ducting etc. The rod is used to propel Radiodetection sondes which can be located and traced with a Radiodetection locator.



Radiodetection Flexrods are used for inserting and pushing Radiodetection Sondes into and along pipes, drains and sewers etc. When used with a Radiodetection locator, flexrods can be used for tracing the path of the pipe or for locating blockages within. Alternatively the flexrod can be used to pull or thread draw strings/cables through ducts and pipes.

A sturdy, high quality steel frame incorporating a manual brake to help maintain control of the rod is used to house the flexrod. The glass fibre rod in a polypropylene sleeve provides resistance to abrasion, most solvents, oils and acids, together with providing a durable, long lasting visible rod with very good bend strength for operating in tight bends.

Radiodetection Flexrods are available in a wide range, with rod diameters from 4.5mm (0.18″) to 11mm (0.43″) and rod lengths of 50m (164′) to 300m (984′). For more detailed information on size, connections and part numbers, refer to the technical specification section.
