A sewer inspection camera can be a valuable tool for a number of different professions: from plumbers to sewer technicians, these cameras can provide a clear view of what is going on inside a sewer line.
This can be helpful for a number of different reasons. First, it can allow professionals to see what is causing a clog or blockage. Second, it can help them determine the best way to clear the line. Third, it can provide a record of what was done during the inspection, which can be helpful if there are any problems in the future. Finally, it can simply give peace of mind to those who are responsible for the maintenance of a sewer system.
The traditional method of sending operators for a direct visual inspection of a sewer system is now very expensive, especially for cities, which are looking for more economical solutions.
It is precisely to tackle this problem that RinnoVision developed a professional sewer inspection camera, allowing a single unspecialized operator to inspect up to 80 sewer lines per day.
Moreover, the comprehensive video data captured during the inspection can be shared with external analysts rather than being analyzed onsite by the camera operator. You save time and money with a quicker inspection.
Using a sewer inspection camera, instead of sending operators in for direct visual inspection, you reduce the impact on traffic, as the inspection is quicker.
Encoding time is also reduced, lowering the cost of sewer inspection, and increasing the amount of sewer lines inspected per hour/day.
Moreover, RinnoVision now offers the remote coding of sewer inspection videos according to the NASSCO standards, allowing contractors to be paid faster by their clients and also giving them greater scalability without having to train and maintain a dedicated internal resource for this task.
RinnoVision is a Canadian company founded by underground infrastructure inspection professionals to meet specific needs in day-to-day operations. The reality of an increasingly competitive market sector, coupled with labour shortages, inspired RinnoVision to develop products that significantly improve the efficiency, time savings, safety and profitability of inspection operations.
“With the acquisition of the RV-PRO 360, we have won all along the line. Ease of use and all the accessories suited for multiple uses. A clear, 360 degree image in a single shot. The inspection time has been reduced a lot and the analysis of the videos has become much easier due to the sharpness of the image.”
Cédric Fougères, Ville de Montréal
“We are satisfied with its performance. Among other things, the RV-PRO 360 kit allowed us to discover that an element everyone thought was an AP was in fact a technical void under an old silo. The space was much larger than an underground chamber and the images were of good quality without additional lighting. With the kit, the inspection of this technical space was possible without having to take confined space entry procedures.”
Gaétan Caron, GDI Géoradar Détection
“Simple and easy to use. The RV-PRO 360 has been a great addition to our maintenance operations.”
Scott Tam, C.E.T., EP, City of Timmins
