  • New LCD Now Available For The MinCam Pipe Cameras

    A new 8.4 inch high resolution LCD is now available for the Mincam and Duo pipe cameras. The Mincam and Duo pipe camera systems will continue to be offered with the super portable 5.6 inch LCD and the New LCD Plus will be an upgrade.

    The New LCD Plus is housed in an industrial hard clam shell pelican case. The LCD Plus mounts on the handle of the Duo and Mincam pipe cameras. Existing systems can be upgraded to use the new LCD. The new design includes a larger 8.4 inch sun light readable LCD with 800 x 600 pixel resolution compared to 640 x 480 on the smaller LCD (A 150% improvememt). Images and video can be stored on the on board SD card. The SD card is removable to transfer files to a PC for review and adding to reports. A built in microphone allows inspectors to record important details about their inspection directly on associated video and still images. The LCD Plus also includes a full QWERTY key board for text annotation.

    The combined features and convenience of the larger 8.4 LCD make the LCD Plus a smart addition for you new or existing mincam or duo pipe cameras.

  • AIT Adds Push Camera With Pan and Tilt Capability

    Advanced Inspection Technologies recently added the new Wohler VIS 340 and 340 Plus push camera systems to our product offering. The new push cameras are perfect for a variety of industrial inspections that other push rod type cameras are not able to accomplish. The unique ability to pan and tilt the camera head allows inspection of side walls and other areas that traditional forward view push or pipe inspection cameras could not.

    This advanced camera systems sheds light in the dark. The articulating eye of the full color push camera head lets you take a close look at pipes, air ducts, chimneys, vents, cracks, welding seams, gaskets and manholes. The super bright wide side screen TFT monitor provides brilliant picture quality. The waterproof 1 1/2" camera always fits. With its 180° pan- and 360° tiltable camera head, it gives you an inside view into drainage pipes, air ducts and intermediate ceilings. The innovative design provides super bright lighting and simple operation, all in one heavy duty carrying case. A crystal clear picture appears on the wide screen TFT monitor so you identify problems before they occur. The Wohler VIS 340 Advanced Push Camera System comes standard with a built in RCA video output and a integrated SD card for documentation. The state-of-the-art NiMH battery packs provide 1.5 hours continious operation. The power supply offer simultaneous operation and battery recharging. Call AIT for a demonstration.

  • Pipe Inspection Cameras Inspect Ships For Problems

    A long pipe inspection cameras can be used to successfully inspect the condition of pipes on ships. Any large ship such as a cruise line, navel vessel or cargo transport has mile of internal piping and can use pipe inspection cameras. This piping is subject to harsh environments such as salt air and internal corrosion. If the pipe on a ship develop a problem the damage is magnified that much more due to the nature of being at sea.

    Piping on Ships Can Be Inspected With Pipe inspection Cameras Piping on Ships Can Be Inspected With Pipe Cameras

    If a pipe develops a leak or a blockage the consequences could mean contaminated fuel or drinking water. Any spills are closely monitored and subject to heavy fines. Fortunately, inspectors can snake long pipe inspection cameras through the smallest diameter pipes on ships. The long pipe cameras can quickly determine the condition of the interior of the pipe. Blockages are easy to see ass well as corrosion, pitting and other defects. Most ships will under go a routine maintenance schedule that includes inspecting all gray water lines, fresh water lines and other ship board piping that may be of concern.

  • 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.

  • Remote Visual Inspection At Boiling Water Reactors

    Remote Visual Inspection (RVI) equipment such as videoscopes, video borescopes, pipe inspection cameras and remotely operated vehicles (ROV) can be used for a variety of inspection requirements during outages at Nuclear Power Plants. Here are some examples of inspections that can be performed remotely using videoscopes, video borescopes, ROV's and pipe inspection cameras. Foreign Object Search and Retrieval is another common function performed during outages.

    Foreign Object Retrieval or Foreign Material Exclusion (FME) utilizes equipment such as videoscopes, video borescopes, pipe inspection cameras and a range of foreign object retriaval tools to locate and remove items from plant system. Foreign Objects, loose parts and other material may become trapped inside piping, turbines, cavities, fuel pool and other difficult to reach areas. Areas that are common to remotely inspect during a plant outage ate Boiling water reactors include: Continue reading

  • Remote Visual Inspection Applications At Refineries

    Oil refineries have multiple inspection requirements that videoscopes, video borescopes and pipe inspection cameras can perform. Refineries have many critical components that need to be functioning at peak performance and the only way to inspect some of these areas is with the use of remote visual inspection equipment.

    Applications where videoscopes, video borescopes or pipe inspection cameras can be used to perform these critical inspections include: Storage Tanks, Gas Flares, Pipe Units, Cracker, Reformer, Fractional Towers, Spherical Tanks and Rail Road cars. All these areas need to be periodically check for cracking, corrosion, wear, proper alignment, pitting, cracking, corrosion, erosion, proper welding and other defects. Other common areas that need to be inspected with videoscopes, video borescopes and pipe inspection cameras may include: Reactors, Heat Exchangers, Boilers, Pressure Vessels, Pipes and Process Piping.

    Remote visual inspection equipment such as videoscopes, video borescopes and pipe inspection cameras make it possible for engineers to safely and efficiently maintain and operate oil refineries around the world.

  • Push Cameras Used to Look for Blockages in Industrial Pipes

    Push cameras or pipe inspection cameras are frequently used to inspect industrial pipes for blockages. Industrial lines can become blocked due to build up of scale deposits, loose parts becoming trapped or collapse in underground industrial waste lines. Remote visual inspection of the pipe lines is typically done with long push cameras that can be pushed down the pipes until the blockage is discovered.Industrial pipes are inspected with push cameras

    Push Cameras are water proof and resistant to most industrial chemicals. A push camera is able to navigate lengths of pipe up to 200 feet and record the condition of the interior of the pipe. When blockage is discovered the operator can either use the footage counter to estimate the location of the problem or use a radio locator to exactly locate the camera head. Many large plants own push or pipe inspection cameras for these applications. Pipe camera rentals are also available.
