Borescope Inspection Cameras for Corrosion Control

Corrosion affects virtually every industry, but is particularly damaging in industries such as power generation, aviation, chemical processing, oil and gas exploration and production, petroleum refining, and food and beverage processing. In all of these industries and many more, simple video borescopes are proving to be a cost-effective way to monitor and mitigate the ravages of corrosion.

This equipment allows technicians to look inside critical components without costly and time-consuming disassembly.

Cameras for Corrosion Inspection

A borescope (endoscope) is a device used for visual inspection of internal components and structures without the need for physical opening. It is especially useful for inspecting pipes and other structures for signs of corrosion. The camera attached to the end of the borescope is a video camera that transmits images to a monitor or computer screen. Most boroscopes have a capturing feature allowing the operator to take a image or video of the inspection area for later analyzation to identify signs of corrosion.

Regular maintenance and inspections are crucial for early detection and repair of corrosion before it causes significant damage or safety issues.

For advice on selecting the most suitable boroscope for corrosion inspection, please contact our specialists.

How Corrosion can Destroy an Engine and Cause Malfunctions

Corrosion is the deterioration of materials due to chemical reactions between them and their environment. This process manifests itself as an electrochemical reaction in which atoms on a metal surface are oxidized, leading to the formation of substances such as rust. Corrosion is a naturally occurring phenomenon driven by the environment, as oxidized metals tend to be more stable than their non-oxidized counterparts. This degradation can cause significant damage in various structures, including pipelines, buildings, bridges, and engines.

In the case of airplane engines, corrosion can affect both operational and non-operational engines. The air intake required for most aircraft engines, combined with the exhaust gases produced by the engine, can lead to corrosion within the engine. Even new engines are susceptible to corrosion and after a short period of inactivity, corrosion can be observed on the cylinder walls.

In the context of engines, corrosion can occur in two ways:
  • Hot - At high temperatures, vanadium and sodium in the fuel can react and cause corrosion in the exhaust passage.
  • Cold - Sulphur in the fuel can cause corrosion of the cylinder liner and combustion chamber.

How Corrosion Inspection Borescopes Help in the Workplace

Borescopes and technical endoscopes are utilized to visually inspect and detect deformations, erosive wear, cracks, and corrosion, fix defects, and record them without compromising the integrity of the structure. They enable quick and accurate examination of the cavities of mechanisms and machines without disassembly. Borescopes can be equipped with a video camera to transmit the image to a monitor or computer. The primary advantage of rigid endoscopes is their high resolution. These devices are employed to inspect the internal surface of simple geometric products that do not require bending of the working part of the distal end.

Borescopes and technical endoscopes are utilized in industry for quality control purposes, including incoming quality control, to detect hidden manufacturing defects in new equipment, and to create protocols. They are also used for contamination control in pharmaceutical processing lines.

How to Choose Borescopes for Corrosion Inspection

When selecting a borescope for corrosion inspection, it is important to consider several factors. Rigid borescopes are ideal for inspecting the inside of simple geometries due to their high resolution. On the other hand, flexible borescopes, equipped with fibre optic image and light transmission systems, are better suited for inspecting areas that are inaccessible to rigid borescopes. Video cameras, which come with a video camera, allow the image to be transmitted to a monitor or computer. When choosing equipment, it is important to consider its length, diameter, and the ability to connect additional equipment, such as light sources, cables, and adapters.
