  • Kombi Inspection Camera At ASNT Conference

    AIT will be introducing an exciting new remote visual inspection camera for sale and rent at the annual ASNT conference October 26 - 29, 2015. The conference will be held at the Salt Palace Convention Center, Salt Lake City, UT and AIT will be found at booth 533.

    AIT will be introducing the Kombi, a new remote visual inspection camera designed to inspect pipes, tube, heat exchangers, boilers, and other industrial lines for defects such as blockages and corrosion. The Kombi inspection camera includes two push rods on a single reel to match the balance of flexibility and "push-ability" depending on your remote visual inspection camera requirements. The push rods include a stiffer 100 meter length cable for long straighter pipe runs and the 60 meter Varioflex for applications that include multiple bends with twist and turns. The Kombi also offers a range of interchangeable camera heads that range from 16, 18, 23 and 32mm diameter.

    Kombi Inspection Camera is Designed For Industrial Applications

    The Kombi is perfect for industrial inspections in confined spaces due to the small profile and light weight design. The high resolution remote visual inspection camera also includes the ability to save video or still images, annotate inspections with text and more. AIT looks forward to showcasing the new Kombi to the non destructive test industry. Applications include:

    Heat Exchanger tubes

    The Kombi is perfect for inspection of heat exchanger tubes found at industrial facilities. Proper function heat exchangers and boilers is critical to efficient plant operation. Inspectors can use the Kombi inspection camera to check scale and rust and other deposits that that may cause blockages, cracks, warping, bulges and ultimately failure.

    Cleaning Validation

    The Kombi inspection camera is frequently used at pharmaceutical, chemical and fertilizer plants to inspect process lines for residual product that may remain after cleaning. Residual product can contaminate the following batch of product and needs to be detected.

    Small Diameter Chiller Tubes

    The Kombi's flexible push rods and small diameter camera heads are the perfect inspection camera for viewing the inside of small chiller tubes. No other inspection camera has the combination of flexibility with the ability to be pushed over long distances. These features provide the Kombi with the ability to navigate the complex twists and turns that can be found in industrial chiller tubes.

  • AIT Partners With Envirosight To Sell CCTV Inspection Camera Equipment

    AIT has recently partnered with Envirosight to distribute their CCTV inspection camera equipment to the industrial market place. The new partnership brings the best quality cctv video pipe crawlers to the industrial market place for the first time. AIT will be introducing the new line of CCTV camera robots known as the ROVVER to petrochemical, process, pharmacuetical and electric power generation plants throughout North America.

    The ROVVER cctv camera is a robotic  inspection camera that can inspect pipelines as small as 4 inches and as large as 6.5 Ft. The Rovver can range as far as 1,640 Ft with an automatic cable reel. More portable systems will still reach 328 Ft. The Rovver robotic pipe crawler also includes a high resolution pan till and zoom camera to give the most detailed inspection results. Other features include a daylight readable touchscreen LCD, sonde, distance counter, steerable 6-wheel drive, highly adaptable architecture, unmatched portability—and enhances it with an extended crawl range (1000' with options up to 1650’), simplified 3-piece system layout, and powerful touchscreen control pendant.

    The new pendant captures days worth of MPEG video and JPEG still images, and lets you enter observations for direct upload to WinCan. Twin multifunction joysticks keep operation simple and natural, while handy macros automate everyday inspection routines. The pendant accepts USB media, and connects via ROVVER-Link for remote diagnostics and firmware updates.

    Both pendant and crawler connect directly to the reel—no control unit is required, which makes the system exceptionally portable and simple to set up. To maximize range, the reel uses light yet strong cable (0.03 lb./ft with 1000 lb. break strength), and continuously monitors cable tension to minimize drag on the crawler.

    ROVVER cctv inspection camera also delivers several other firsts for a mid-size ROVVER crawler: a detachable remote-operated camera lift, three onboard cameras, integrated sensor package (sonde, dual lasers, inclination, roll), and concurrent control for all camera, reel and crawler functions. High-power drivetrain, proportional steering and zero-radius pivot further enhance ROVVER’s agility.

    The Mincord has many applications to include plumbing, heat exchanger tubes, small diameter boiler tubes, interior of aircraft wings, drain lines, HVAC, and many other commercial and industrial inspections. Industrial customers such as power generation, petrochemical, process and food plants have found the new generation of cameras extremely useful for all of their small diameter applications.

  • Boiler Inspection Camera

    Boilers are extensively inspected with a boiler inspection camera. Inspections include: boiler fittings for security, boiler feet for cracks and distortion. Boiler Inspection Camera and Video Borescopes can be used to inspect the internal condition of boilers tubes. A boiler needs to periodically have its cooling tubes checked for imperfections. a pipe inspection camera or video borescope can be inserted into the boiler tube and pushed the length of the tube. The pipe inspection camera or video borescope can record the condition. A boiler tube needs to be checked for erosion, scale, blockage, cracking, corrosion, pitting and other defects.
