What is a Industrial Endoscope Used For?
The industrial endoscope is a new high-tech product designed and produced according to the inspection requirements of the inner surface of the pipeline in the petrochemical industry, industrial machinery, electronic and electrical industry, aerospace, etc. It integrates optical, mechanical, electrical, and image processing software. The industrial endoscope is equipped with a high-resolution color monitor or USB port. It is more convenient to carry, and the observation image is clearer. The operator can use the high-resolution color CCD to freeze, enlarge, analyze, measure and print the report of the observed suspects and flaw detection parts with the help of a unique professional software processing system, thereby greatly improving the accuracy of judging the flaw detection parts on the inner wall of the pipeline.
The probe is designed with direct viewing and side viewing. It can scan and observe the pipe wall 360°, which is convenient and reliable to use. For example, probes are needed for defect detection, condition monitoring and maintenance of important equipment such as turbines, pipelines, condenser tubes, pumps, boilers, heat exchangers, valves, and pressure vessels. Equipment testing for nuclear power plants, wind power plants, hydroelectric power plants, thermal power plants, and power construction units is even more indispensable.
Industrial borescope applications
- Precision casting and mechanical manufacturing
In auto parts casting, hydraulic casting, pump body and valve body casting, mechanical parts casting, pipeline and pipe fittings casting units, industrial endoscopes can be used to inspect the quality control of casting sand, burrs and staggered holes.
Aimed at such inspections, ATO endoscope is small and exquisite. Because the parts to be inspected are relatively small holes, its lens rod is small and can be flexibly inserted. In addition, its video display is also very intuitive and clear, allowing you to observe the deep holes, blind holes, staggered holes, casting sand, and burrs inside the casting body at a glance.
- Automobile repair and manufacturing industry
Industrial endoscopes are widely used in automobile production and maintenance industries. In these industries, industrial borescopes are mainly used for the detection and diagnosis of wearing, deposit and blockage of automobile engines, cylinders, hydraulic components, fuel pipes, engines, mufflers, transportation and air conditioning systems, differentials, water tanks, fuel tanks and a gearbox, etc. This product helps improve work efficiency, reduces repair costs, and avoids damage caused by multiple disassembly and assembly of mechanical parts. In the cleaning and maintenance of automobile engines, endoscopes are also indispensable daily tools. At the same time, it is characterized by simple operation, flexible and smart structure. The soft and small insertion tube can reach any hidden part that needs to be checked.
- Aerospace industry
The industrial endoscope can be used for regular inspections of aircraft turbines, blades, engines, weld surfaces, duct surfaces, internal combustion chambers or body inspections, as well as the research, development, and manufacturing of rocket engines.
The maintenance of the aircraft is inseparable from the borescope. The endoscope is one of the important tools for daily maintenance and routine inspection of aircraft. Its purpose is to know the conditions inside the engine. As the only inspection method that can understand the internal condition of the engine without disassembling the engine during route maintenance, endoscopy has important significance and value for both safety and efficiency. First, it is intuitive and accurate, simple and easy to use, and can detect damage to the internal components of the engine as soon as possible, which greatly helps to eliminate safety hazards in the embryonic stage. Secondly, endoscopic inspection saves maintenance costs, including the cost of disassembling the engine and the corresponding engine replacement, transportation, and other unnecessary aircraft outage losses.
- Petroleum, chemical and pressure vessel industry
The industrial endoscope can be used for the detection and inspection of internal defects of storage tanks, heat exchangers, spherical tank trucks in petroleum refineries, pipeline facilities in the chemical industry, as well as the vessels, steel cylinders and pipelines of special inspection institutes and pressure vessel production units. During the inspection process, there is no need to disassemble the inspected equipment, which is a very cost-effective inspection solution.
The video endoscopy technology is widely used in internal inspection of industrial condenser tubes, compressors, heat exchanger tubes, weld inspection, tube wall deposition, corrosion and cracks of stainless steel pipelines for pharmaceuticals and food, overheating inspection and leak inspection, electroplated pipe, annular weld inspection. The image processing system and recorder that come with the video borescope can effectively record, store and process the inspection defects at any time to ensure the timely archiving of the image data.
- Railway architecture, shipbuilding and research unit
Industrial video endoscopes, pipe endoscopes and straight rod endoscopes are widely used in many different factories and mines. In railway/ship units, it is used to inspect electric locomotives, air conditioning systems, turbines, heaters, diesel engines, boiler flames, and pipeline inspections. In construction engineering units, it is used to check the corrosion and dirt of steel pipes, internal diagnosis of walls, etc. In research units, it can also be used for observation, scientific research, laboratories, archaeology, etc.
- Power generation and construction industry
The application of ATO industrial endoscope in various power plants and power construction industries. It can be used for defect detection and condition monitoring of important equipment such as turbines, pipelines, condenser tubes, pumps, boilers, heat exchangers, valves, pressure vessels, and other equipment. Industrial endoscopes can effectively help staffs to check out various equipment problems, and can also check for quality defects such as corrosion, rust spots, cracks, iron filings, foreign bodies, and butt welds in the components. The compactness, portability and mobility of the product itself can reduce work intensity and improve work efficiency. The built-in portable battery is more convenient to work in harsh environments such as small space, high climbing, and field operations.
