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.
