Sewer Camera Equipment and Their Functions

Home / Sewer Camera Equipment and Their Functions

Sewer camera inspection services are invaluable to seeing the interior condition of sewer and stormwater networks. By identifying structural and service flaws, the images and videos taken during a pipe inspection can be used to assess the condition of pipes and whether repairs and other upkeep or maintenance measures are needed.

Federal EC specializes in pipe inspection in Atlanta, GA, and we take pride in giving clear, accurate reports – made possible by our team of experts and the high grade equipment we use. Here are some of the devices that help us do our best work.

Push Rod Cameras

When it comes to gathering footage of the pipe interior’s conditions or detecting a problem, sewage laterals or house connection branches offer extraordinary obstacles. Push rod cameras are made for challenging, constrained environments. They can be manually inserted and manipulated, and the imagery is sent back to a control unit.

They appear as coiled cables with a thin camera head. Skids occasionally keep the camera head and vision steady and in the center for a precise, thorough sewer camera inspection.

Inspection Rafts

An inspection raft might be the only option for collecting imagery inside huge, long-distance pipes. They can be pushed downstream and captured with a hook or net at a site that may be many kilometers further down the tube when these are used for outfall tunnels. Typically, they are made to stand still and be balanced during the pipe camera inspection.

Manhole/Maintenance Hole Cameras

The vertical shaft that descends to the benching and pipe channel can now be photographed, recorded on video, and scanned in 3D using a range of specialized cameras. Previously, this was accomplished through visible surface or confined space entry inspection, frequent camera use, or a crawler that was dropped to investigate the main pipe. The purpose of more recent camera technology is to gather data with a lot greater resolution than ever before in any drain inspection.

Jetter Nozzle Cameras

Using jetters, operators can remove silt, blockages, fats, oils, grease, and roots from pipes.

Some hydro jetters on the market come with nozzle cameras that may be used to drive the camera into lateral pipelines, find specific problems, and guide the camera through the pipe during sewer scoping. Following its cleaning pass through the line, the camera is also equipped to record video footage that may be used to gauge the effectiveness of the clean and the condition of the cleaned pipe.
