The applications of crawling Borescopes are highly versatile in nature. They can vary from inspection of fuel pipes, water pipes and other plumbing structures. Being a professional plumber I use them for detecting the internal flaws in high pressure pipes. They give absolute control over how I am able to move them. When I used the first such Borescope I was surprised to see its firm grip on the slippery internal surface of the pipes. In spite of the high pressure and flowing velocity of water it can crawl slowly in the pace you decide. The waterproof nature makes the device highly resistant to leakage, rusting, deposition of algae and other waterborne pollutants. The crawlers can be used in combination with the wheels and spacers for varying the types of Borescopes movements within the pipes.
The camera efficiency of the Borescopes matters a lot to you as a user. The coverage depth can go beyond 150-feet depth with maximum accuracy. Most of the cameras on board the device are protected with water and shock-proof structures. They also give the required flexibility for the camera to rotate through 36-degrees. Of course you might not use this particular feature very regularly however the angular rotation up to 180-degrees seems to be the most in use.
When you buy Borescopes you need to pay special attention to their battery power. The minimum I recommend is 12 hours backup under extreme weather conditions. Make sure the battery casing is water and shockproof in nature. This feature is required when you are using the Borescopes at remote places in high pressure pipes. It would be better if the charger is inbuilt and can connect with power source with our without cable. The option for twin batteries can help in extending the working hours of the Borescopes between two successive recharging.
The crawling capacity gives additional measurement scope for the Borescopes. Now they can scan the defects and give real time input to the analyzing units in an efficient manner. Frame to frame coverage of the Borescopes makes them highly recommended for professional plumbers, hydraulic engineers and people engaged in construction and manufacturing industries. Read More
