Crawler inspects large pipe with high flow, deep mud, big obstacles - TheFabricator.com

The RX400 crawler body from Envirosight LLC is designed to inspect pipe up to 10 ft. in diameter. It has a built-in, remotely operated camera lift with 17.5 in. of vertical travel — enough to center viewing in a 60-in. line. The crawler integrates with any ROVVER X pipe inspection system and existing controls, reel, camera, and accessories.

Features include selectable 412-/640-Hz sonde; an illuminated rear-view camera; an expansion port for an elevated rear-view camera; a clutch; and sensors for tilt, roll, pressure, temperature, pressure, and lift height. Four aimable LED tri-lamps and twin LED path lamps deliver increased illumination for large pipes. Opposing rangefinders at the camera head allow automatic view centering and accurate measurement of pipe diameter.
