Well Inspection Cameras (Borehole and Downhole)

Maximize your productivity with the right well camera. Our technical sales specialists are ready to assist you in choosing the system that will be a proper fit for your application and budget.
Waterproof Borehole Camera Head

The typical well camera consists of a camera head, a winch with a flexible cable, and a control unit.

Well Camera head
The camera head has to be fully waterproof and metal housed. Extra bright LED illumination is a must since inspections are performed without access to a lot of ambient light. The well camera can have either one axial view imaging sensor, or two: with another chip for panning observation of the side walls

General Information About Well Inspection Cameras

Well inspection cameras are special cameras used to inspect deep holes, such as water wells or mines, to see what is happening inside. The camera head is mounted on a flexible cable, which is lowered into the well. As the camera descends, it captures images and videos of the well's interior, which are transmitted to a monitor or recording device on the surface. This allows the operator to see a real-time view of the inside of the well and identify any problems that need to be addressed.

The equipment will be helpful if you need to get into vertical channels that are hard for people to reach and see things that are hard to see any other way. They are typically used to assess the condition of a well or mine and identify any issues that may be affecting its performance, such as blockages, cracks, fractures, or other types of damage.

Well inspection equipment is very rugged and can work underwater, in very wet or dirty areas, and have special illumination that allows you to see even in the dark. They can be used for various purposes, such as checking for damage or seeing if water or gas is coming into the well. Water well cameras are commonly used by well contractors, pump installers, drillers and other professionals in the industry.

FAQ about underwater borehole inspection cameras

How does a downhole camera work?

The borehole camera is equipped with LED lights to illuminate the inspected area and has a panning dual-view camera to capture different angles and views of the well. The camera head is lowered into the borehole on the end of the cable. As the camera head descends, it captures images and videos of the surrounding area, which are transmitted to the control unit on the surface for analysis.

The data captured by the downhole camera is used to inspect the condition of the well or borehole, identify blockages or other obstructions, locate fractures or other damage, and monitor the progress of remedial work or drilling operations.

What is a downhole camera?

A well camera is a device used to inspect the inside walls of a well or borehole. It usually consists of a camera mounted on a long flexible cable connected to a control box. It is equipped with powerful LED lights, a high-resolution video camera, and a screen that allows the operator to see the inside surface of the well in real time.

How and who can benefit from well inspection cameras?

Well inspection cameras can be a valuable tool for various industries and applications. For example, they can be used by water utilities to inspect and maintain water wells or by oil and gas companies to inspect oil and gas wells.
In addition, environmental agencies use them to assess the condition of wells and underground tanks to ensure that they are not contaminating groundwater resources.
Finally, mining and drilling companies use well inspection cameras to monitor the progress of drilling operations and identify potential hazards or obstacles.
Such devices can help identify problems quickly and accurately and take appropriate action to correct them. This can prevent costly repairs, downtime, and ensure the safe and efficient operation of a well or underground structure.

What is the best downhole camera?

The best wellbore camera is the one that meets the specific requirements of the inspection task. Choosing the best device will depend on the particular needs and requirements of the user. Some factors to consider when choosing include cable length, video and image recording, display screen quality, and device durability and reliability.

What are the factors to consider when purchasing equipment to inspect wells?

While well inspection cameras can provide valuable information about the asset condition, some factors should be considered.

Cost: Typically, well cameras need general investment, especially for small-scale operations, which should be considered as part of the overall cost-benefit analysis of using this technology.

Limited access: If you're looking for a bigger system, access to an external power source is necessary. In some cases, additional equipment or techniques may be required to reach certain areas.

Size: the weight and bulkiness of the camera system can be a particular concern when inspecting wells, mines, or boreholes in remote or difficult-to-access locations. In these cases, it may be necessary to use specialized equipment for transportation.

How much does it cost to rent well inspection cameras?

The cost of renting a well inspection camera can vary depending on the specific model and the length of the rental period. It is usually more cost-effective to purchase a well inspection camera rather than renting one if it will be used frequently. However, renting can be a good option for occasional or one-time use.

Downhole well video inspection solutions

Well inspection cameras are specialized cams to inspect the interior surface of water wells, boreholes, and other deep drilling projects. These devices are necessary to ensure the safety and integrity of drilling operations and monitor and maintain the wells themselves.

One of the key features of well inspection cameras is their ability to provide a high-quality 360-degree viewing angle. This allows for a comprehensive view of the well, including the walls, floor, and any obstacles that may be present. In addition, many well inspection cameras are equipped with adjustable lighting, allowing for clear, detailed images even in low-light conditions.
The camera head of such inspection systems is connected to a reinforced flexible cable (often up to 500 m) that can be lowered into a well or borehole and easily retrieved when the inspection is complete. The cameras come with a control unit with a built-in LCD and DVR. The control unit is powered by either a rechargeable battery or an external power source, allowing the cameras to work in remote areas or underground.
One of the latest models of well inspection cameras is the STRAHL HD portable well camera. This system's camera head has dual high-definition color cameras with powerful LED illumination on the side and bottom. It features waterproof housing, making it suitable for underwater inspections. In addition, the system comes with a DVR (digital video recorder) for storing recordings and a sensor for any necessary measurements.
Downhole inspection cameras are used to inspect the condition of the well and surrounding areas. These inspections are typically conducted at least once a year to ensure the well is in good condition and identify potential problems.

Well inspection cameras such as the ANACONDA well and duct camera, STRAHL HD well camera, and AQUASCOPE borehole camera are essential tools for ensuring the safety and integrity of water wells, boreholes, and other deep drilling projects.

They provide detailed, high-quality images of the inner surface of the well and can be used for both borehole inspections and wellbore surveys. The underwater inspection capability, powerful light source, and high-resolution LCD with DVR make the borehole camera a versatile and valuable addition to any inspection solution.

Advantages of water well inspection camera

There are several advantages to using well inspection cameras over more traditional survey methods.
  • Drain Camera Screen
    Saves time and money
    One major advantage is that these cameras allow you to examine the inside of a well or borehole in a non-invasive, safe and efficient way. This saves time and money because there is no need to physically penetrate the well or borehole or disturb the surrounding area.
  • Data Capture
    Recording and saving data
    Another advantage of well inspection cameras is the ability to capture high-resolution images and video. These cameras are equipped with high-quality lenses and sensors, allowing them to capture detailed images and video of the inside of the well. This will help identify any existing problems such as cracks, corrosion or debris.
  • Contractor Worker Safety
    Well cameras are much safer than traditional pipe inspection methods because they eliminate the need for workers to penetrate the pipes physically. This reduces the risk of injury or accident and can improve overall safety at the job site.
