3 things you need to know about pipe crawlers

STORMER S3000 pipe crawlerThey are a new generation of highly agile viewing equipment that can be used for long-range inspections of pipelines of various diameters. For example, our new STORMER S3000 pipe crawler can travel within pipelines with double the speed of a conventional viewing device providing you with a complete view of the pipeline interior. During our extensive experience in selling inspection equipment and working with our clients all over the world we have come up with a list of 3 winning characteristics that make pipe crawlers irreplaceable tools for effective, economical and comfortable inspections. We want to demonstrate them using the STORMER S3000 as an example:

  1. Outstanding Versatility. The pipeline inspection applications can be rather diverse and you do not want to buy a new device every time you have to inspect a different pipe. The STORMER S3000 Pipe Crawler is a versatile device that greatly increases your efficiency while minimizing operation time. It is geared up for inspecting pipelines from 150mm (5.9”) to 1000mm (40”) in diameter. The highly scalable design can be adjusted to your particular inspection requirements within seconds – you can choose between two camera mounts (top and front) and several sets of wheels. As of today, it is one of the most sophisticated and efficient, yet affordable pipe crawlers in the market. It is a powerful 5 speed 15 Nm 4 wheel drive with chain transmission operating on 48 V DC motor. An optional inclinometer that sends data on pipe gradient to OSD for display can be included in the set.
  2. Unprecedented Precision. Key characteristic, as both you and your client need the exact answer what the problem is as soon as possible. The pipe crawler STORMER S3000 provides you with a clear, true to life images of pipeline interiors at the click of a button. The pan-and-tilt camera with continuous rotation is equipped with a 0.5 lux sensitive, high-definition CMOS chip (720×576 pixels), protected by a scratchproof front window to prevent image impairment, which occurs from using cameras in multiple cycles of inspection in abrasive environments. The camera is designed to withstand up to 5.5 bar pressure and is protected by a Stainless steel housing with Aluminum anodized finish. The eco-friendly homogenous LED light Illumination can be adjusted depending on the inspection lighting conditions
  3. Groundbreaking Portability. Pipe crawlers are easy to set up and transport with you wherever you need to go. In our case, the STORMER S3000 consists of several modules that are very easy to assemble: pan-and-tilt camera, insertion cable, CCU, cable reel and crawler. The CCU with easy-to-use silicon rubber controls and integrated LED backlit 10.4” HD TFT flat panel monitor is housed in a portable, sturdy Pelican case. You can record inspection data in MPEG2 format, use WinCan compatiblesoftware and type up to 6 pages of comments. You have a choice of saving the information to the hard drive or a USB memory stick that connects to the unit on the main control panel. The STORMER S3000 pipe crawler uses 110v or 240v mains or 1KVA generator power inlet for power supply. 

 

In overall, pipe crawlers are fast, versatile, high-performance viewing devices that allow you to examine wide range of pipelines with ease while saving you a great deal of time, money and nerves.

Video Borescope RIGEL: Advanced Features But Maintains Affordable Price

Lately we have been witnessing a flood of innovative viewing equipment in the market that boast with advanced characteristics, enhanced software, user-friendly operation AND being extremely cheap – all at the same time. As it turns out – a lot of them are either advanced but NOT very user-friendly, or they are advanced but NOT cheap. To start out with elaborate software menus and set up instructions. You need a separate class to master just those two before you can take the device to the field and examine a pipe, or machine.
It definitely shouldn’t require half of your company’s annual income to buy a video Articulating Borescope RIGEL borescope. Equipment is supposed to minimize operation time while maximizing income. Not the other way around.
In this regards, we highly recommend new versatile RIGEL Articulating Video Borescope. And we are going to prove to you that it’s worth all the penny you invest in it:
1. It’s small, compact, light, yet extremely maneuverable due to optimal neck angulation unexpected in devices of its class – 180 degrees in 2 directions for 1m (3.3’) and 2m (6.5’) probes and 120 degrees for 3m (9.8’) probes. Use the neck lock if you want to fixate it in a specific position
2. Wide range of applications and outstanding durability – articulating necks are reinforced with tungsten and come in different lengths. Increased longevity despite the multiple cycles of inspections
3. High-quality, crisp images due to innovative high-resolution CMOS Video Camera chip (60 fps@AVGA) and six integrated LED lights
4. Add-on features for more informative inspections: powerful zoom, grid and mirroring function
5. The buttons on the control unit are FEW and they are easy to find and use
6. Easy data recording, processing, exchanging via SD memory card, USB or AV output jack. The integrated monitor is high definition 3.5” Color LCD display
7. Uninterrupted, free of wires operation due to a long-lasting, rechargeable LI-polymer battery

 

Endoscope and Light Source that was donated from Medit Inc. for Doctors in Ethiopia

Medit Inc, one of the leaders among online suppliers of endoscopic equipment and accessories in North America, is pleased to announce great feedback that arrived from doctors in Ethiopia who have recently received a new endoscope and a light source as a donation from the company.

At the beginning of 2014 the company was contacted by Jerald S. Altman, M.D. from Valley ENT with the request to donate equipment for doctors in Ethiopia. Dr. Altman was going to Ethiopia in March of that year as a volunteer to train and help local doctors. Medit Inc. was able to donate a battery-powered endoscope and light source intended for use in the field.

The company was informed days before Christmas that the doctors in Ethiopia were extremely pleased with the endoscope’s easy and comfortable operation. Our light source utilizes a newly designed LED chip which is combined with a specialized focal lens to produce 15% more light intensity then the most powerful light sources in the class. The body is composed of high grade aluminum with an anodized finish. The light source has a great utilization which makes the inspection process more comfortable. The equipment is light, compact, portable and runs on standard AAA rechargeable batteries which makes it irreplaceable at locations where power supply is limited or not available.

The company hopes to continue collaboration with the doctors in Ethiopia and strongly believes that it is through small deeds of kindness that great things can happen.

Portable locator ”Detection wand” XT512 from Medit Inc.

Portable locator “Detection Wand” XT512 boasts a lightweight, yet sturdy body, compact size, and one button depth measurement. The locator operates on the popular 512Hz frequency mode. Typically, the locator permits to read depths up to 2.5 meters (8 feet) depending on the strength of signal and location of your sewer/pipe inspection camera. The XT512 is instrumental in locating blockages and obstructions in non metallic pipes.

The portable locator can be used to trace non-metallic pipes, or metallic pipes, where other modes are inapplicable or inefficient. A small sonde or “beacon transmitter” is either built into our camera head, or a separate unit can be pushed through the pipe on a cable allowing the locator to search  for the signal emitted by the sonde.  The portable locator is equipped with an LCD display panel, which produces a clear digital readout. It also features as a graphic display and an audible tone.

“Detection Wand” XT512 portable locator is faster and far more precise than analog locators. Additional accessories such as a standard headset, noise cancelling headphones and different frequencies beacon are available with the wand. All this coupled with a special extended 3-year warranty makes ”Detection Wand” XT512 portable locator a perfect choice for any pipeline or sewer inspection.

The “Detection Wand” XT512 portable locator is an ideal addition for the beacon equipped Trogloprobe or Viper-S pipe Inspection Camera System.
