The inspection procedures with Borescopes can be effectively carried out when the devices are manufactured and assembled according to the ISO and UL standards. The protective parts of the device consist of the external body and internal pipes. They are mostly made of steel, brass or other combinational alloys. The construction standards ensure maximum protection from heat, humidity, pressure and other extreme conditions. The efficiency of the inspection procedures depends on the design and layout of the optical and digital components like the lenses, prism, eyepiece/camera and the LED. Attaching the camera to the CMOS chip can further enhance the resolution and magnification properties of the Borescopes.
Stage Wise Inspection Procedure
The inspection of pipes and sewer lines require accuracy in focus and enhanced field of view. If you try to use the Borescopes with the help of crawler and wheel arrangement, it is possible to scan the minutest parts of the pipes.
- Borescopes Crawlers: – The crawler unit helps in getting a firm grip onto the internal pipeline walls. This can help in withstanding the liquid pressure till 100s of PSI. Being water-proof and rigid in nature the portable crawler Borescopes can be used in pipes varying in diameter from 150mm to 1000mm in diameter. Their firmness of grip gives them the ability to rotate 360-degress on the pipe walls without losing control. You can control the speed and direction of their movements at every stage of inspection. Make sure the footages are captured in quick succession of frames. This will help in optimizing the visual inspection procedure.
- Borescopes Camera: – You can use the camera to enhance the focal length and field of view in combination with the objective lens. You need to go slow while inspecting the sensitive parts within the pipes as skipping them can be disastrous. Use the magnification factors of the camera for enhancing the internal view of the side walls. It is recommended that you keep the list of probable defects along with the sample images with you while inspecting. They help you in comparing the real time images with the defects data.
- CMOS Chip: – The CMOS chip attached to the Borescopes camera is a highly sensitive and intelligent device. You will be able to use its image and video quality and resolution enhancing capacity to the maximum extent. The chip also helps in auto detecting many known types of defects. You can also add new types of defects into the library for future inspection purposes. The aim is to quickly identify the commonly occurring types of defects without human intervention. This approach can help in saving time and enhancing efficiency.
- Borescopes Prism: – The active support for Penta prism is given by only some of the Borescopes models. For example the rigid type can host the prism. This device helps in streamlining the direction of the image properly under extreme conditions. The final outcome is the finest quality of images with maximum brightness, sharpness, resolution and accuracy. You will be able to record these video footages and images for future use through USB enabled devices.
