    AIT will be exhibiting our video borescopes, pipe inspection cameras, Tank and Vessel inspection cameras, Small diameter inspection solutions and other remote visual inspection equipment. We look forward to speaking with you about your remote visual inspection requirements and how AIT can help.

    Equipment you can look forward to seeing includes:

    X-LED Videoscope will be displayed at the 2017 ASNT ConferenceThe NEW X-LED Plus videoscope will be available for demo! The new high definition video borescope offers probes from 2.4mm diameter and lengths up to 7.5m. An HD camera provides brilliant resolution. A high high defintion 7" widescreen LCD with a touch screen user interface makes inspections a breeze.




    The Mentor Visual IQ is the most advanced high resolution 3D measurement video borescope manufactured. The Mentor IQ is available with fully interchangeable probes with diameters of 4.0, 6.1, 6.2 and 8.4mm. The system boasts the most complete set of interchangeable tip optics including 3D stereo and 3D phased measurement. A high resolution TFT touch screen LCD makes the user interface a breeze.



    The PTZx Portable inspection system is tank and vessel inspection cameras will be available at the ASNT conference. Perfect for inspection of tanks, vessels, drums and other large confined spaces. State-of-the-art white LED lighting provides over 1000 lumens of light along with add-on auxiliary lighting brightens the darkest of environments. Coupled with a low-lux, high-resolution CCD imager, zoom optics, continuous pan rotation and 270° of tilt, this sub-4" camera provides excellent quality images with which well-informed decisions can be made.


    The MC360 is the best industrial pan and tilt pipe inspection camera. AIT will have the MC360 available for view to show off the ability to inspection long lengths of pipes and other lines without missing any detail. The 50mm diameter head is the smallest diameter pan and tilt camera head in it’s class. The small diameter allows you to inspect smaller pipes that other systems can’t.

  • Rent Inspection Cameras For Heat Exchangers

    AIT offers several options for our customer that need to rent inspection cameras for shell and tube heat exchangers. Tube bundles need to be periodically inspected for potential problems such as the build up of deposits, blockages and other defects that cause damage to tube walls and reduce the efficiency for these types of heat exchangers. A common type of heat exchanger is a Shell and tube. Depending on the tube diameter, length and accessibility you may choose a different inspection camera to rent for you next inspection.

    Rent Inspection Cameras For Heat Exchanger Tubes:

    1. Kombi Double Push Camera

    Kombi inspection camera is a light weight and portable remote visual inspection camera for industrial applications Kombi Double Push Camera

    The Kombi is a great rental choice when portability, battery power is required. The Kombi inspection camera includes two push cables and four camera heads so you can configure it on the spot. This ability to use different stiffness push cables or camera heads allows you to inspect several diameter heat exchanger tubes with one inspection camera system. The Kombi is capable of inspecting heat exchanger tubes from 3/4" to 8" ID.

    2. Mincam Duo Push Camera

    Rent Inspection Cameras For Heat Exchanger Tubes like the Mincam Duo Push Camera Mincam Duo Push Camera

    The Mincam Duo is available with 150 ft or 100 ft main push rod cable. a 3/4", 1.0" or 2.0" camera head can be attached to the push rod spending on the diameter of the heat exchanger tube you intend to inspect. For extra small diameter tubes the MinCam Duo includes a 1/2" camera with up to 100 ft of push cable. The combination of push rods and interchangeable camera heads allows you to inspect tubes from 3/4" ID to 12" ID.

    3. Small Line Camera (SLC)

    The SLC is designed to inspect small industrial pipes bores and tubes. The push rod cable is available in lengths up to 100 ft. and camera diameters from 1/2", 3/4" and 1.0". Super high resolution and brilliant illumination make the SLC a great choice when the best image is needed. The SLC can see the smallest defect in your heat exchanger tube. A smart all in one case design makes the SLC easy to use. Just open and turn on. Included features are 4 hours of battery life, video and still image recording. The SCL is perfect for inspection of heat exchanger tubes from 3/4" to 4.0"

    4. Mincord Inspection Camera

    Mincord portable push camera for inspection of small pipes
    The Mincord is a super portable push camera with 50' or 100' of flexible push cable. The camera is 1/2" diameter on a super flexible spring. The Mincord inspection camera is a great choice where portability is the most important consideration. The small size allows access into any confined space. Video or still image capture can be done on an SD card. The Mincord is capable of inspecting heat exchanger tubes from 3/4" to 2.5" diameter.

    Each inspection camera from AIT offers its own advantages and benefits. When you speak with one of our representatives they will guide you through your selection based on you individual requirements.

  • The New Mincord inspection camera

    The New Mincord inspection camera now offer smaller camera heads to allow easy inspection of drain lines as small as 1/2 inch. Technology has made it possible to manufacture smaller diameter CCD cameras which in turn allow new visual inspection cameras to be designed to access drain lines as small as 1/2 inch. The new generation of drain inspection cameras offer length of up to 100 feet, still image recording and video recording. The small diameter drain inspection cameras also included a removable SD or USB to transfer files to a PC.

    Inspection Camera New Mincord Inspection Camera

    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.

  • Pipe Inspection Cameras See Inside Fire Protection Systems

    Fire Protection System Pipe with MIC Fire Protection Systems May Become Blocked From MIC

    Inspection cameras are a proven method to inspect fire protection system piping for micro biologically influenced corrosion (MIC). MIC is corrosion influenced by the activities of bacteria. MIC results in the formation of deposits (nodules) and subsequent severe under-deposit pitting. This can lead to blockage of pipes and rapid failure of the fire protection system (FPS) piping. It has recently been recognized that MIC in fire protection systems is a problem throughout North America. Many different types of materials (e.g., steel and copper) and systems (e.g., wet and dry) are affected.

    National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) Code 25 requires fire sprinkler systems to have an Obstruction Investigation every five years and requires that the interior of the system piping be inspected for the presence of organic and inorganic material. NFPA 25 also requires that if tubercles or slime are found during an investigation that they be tested for MIC.

    An inspection camera can be inserted into pipes and snaked long distances while the operator views the interior condition of the pipe on an LCD screen. Pipe inspection cameras typically have the ability to record the inspection for later review. A pipe inspection camera is perhaps the most reliable method to thoroughly inspect the entire length of fire protection system pipes. Without a pipe inspection camera inspection will be limited and incomplete. Today, pipe cameras can be either purchased or pipe camera rentals are available from certain suppliers.
