Pipeline Inspections: Sensors & Camera

RAVANAIR is your one stop for pipeline inspections thanks to the technology we’ve invested in to make your projects seamless. Our technicians hold several NASSCO certifications to provide the most current services possible.

For large diameter pipe inspections, including large municipal sewer and drainage lines, the CUES SoLID FX profiling system is a multi-sensor inspection powerhouse equipped to float, crawl or push through thousands of feet of pipe. SFX can be used for a wide array of inspections including condition assessment, rehab planning or defect locating and includes a high-definition digital video camera, 2D-LiDAR and profiling SONAR.

For smaller pipe inspections, the LAMPII tractor paired with the DUC (Digital Universal Camera) or OZII (Pan Tilt & Optical Zoom Camera) allows us to find cracks in pipelines during visual inspections and pinpoint lateral inserts. This has made underground pipeline inspections simple, allowing us to offer our clients preliminary same-day results for even the most complex pipelines.

These techniques have proven to be the most efficient and effective methods of inspecting underground pipelines and utility pipes, providing high-level, reliable and accurate information.
