Pipes and drains of all kinds usually gets clogged up eventually. They may deteriorate over time, and require maintenance eventually. Any industry that waits until this happens is not ahead of the game, and is thus not aware of the efficient working practices. This is why a regular drain and sewer camera inspection routines are not only necessary, but also important in maintaining a safe, consistent and continued operations.
CCTV used for pipe inspection work
Closed circuit television or the CCTV is used for pipe inspection work. The technology is now so good that the pictures obtained of the inside of pipes and drains are clear enough to easily identify any damage, or even any potential future damage, in the interior part of the pipe. Any build up of debris or dirt can also clearly be seen to allow the right approach of cleaning to take place later.
How surveying pipe work is helpful?
Surveying pipe work in this way can save company money by letting them have firsthand knowledge of the condition of every inch of their debris and sewers. It can eliminate and the nasty surprise that accompanies an unexpected breakdown. It isn’t just large bore drains and sewers that pipe inspection work can be carried out on either. Mini explosion proof camera systems, have been developed that can allow a remote camera to travel with a pipe of just one inch or 25 millimeters internal diameter. Pipes going all the way up to 24 inches or 600 millimeters in diameter can also be inspected by using the larger camera systems.
Pipe inspection cameras for deeper digs
There is a limit to the level of travel that a system can cope with. This is usually 300 meter mark, from the point of pipe entry. However, during than 300 meter run there is a lot of useful work that a pipe inspection camera system can do. And a new entry point can be established following the first run to allow very long lengths of drains and sewer pipes to be inspected.
What they CCTV cameras actually are?
The camera systems are generally mindless robots. The more advanced systems can provide clear, sharp, full color pictures in very high resolution. They could also pan and tilt to give close up pictures of any particular detail, thus providing a full 360 degree horizontal vision capability.
Modern state of the art pipe inspection cameras
Most of the modern state of the art pipe inspection camera systems are explosion proof. Gas can build up inside the pipe work, and the camera system is powered by electricity. Should a spark initiate an explosion, the equipment should survive it and be able to continue to relay a valuable record of the activity logs or what is going on.
Modern technology making it possible for using drain cameras
Drain inspection camera or sewer camera inspections work has never been easier, thanks to modern technology. Now there is hardly a drain or pipe that cannot be examined internally to save to save a company time and money from unexpected breakdowns.
Drain or pipe relining – How experts does it?
A drain relining or pipe relining is the method of applying a new lining to an existing damaged pipe to rehabilitate it and for it to function well. Sealants, rubber sheets, are used to wrap up the pipe in or white cement to cover gaps and reconstruct pipe damages.
