Without looking, there’s no way to know for sure what your sewer cleaning crew will face underground. That makes choosing which jetter nozzle to use mostly a matter of guesswork. And without any pre-inspection visual information on pipe condition, cleaning crews risk wasting their time and money.A 2015 study甚至發現jette多達35%的汙水管道d unnecessarily as part of scheduled cleaning and maintenance. While CCTV crawlers are great inspection tools, they require a lot of manpower and can be pricey to operate on every cleaning job.
Even with the right tools, standards-compliant sewer inspections require time and resources. But many wastewater departments only need a general understanding of a pipe or manhole’s condition to guide decisions when it comes to prioritizing cleaning and assessment.
Communities across North America have turned toQuickview airHDto meet that need. Its high-powered Quad-Haloptic light engine and HD camera can assess sewer condition rapidly and affordably, making it ideal for prioritizing cleaning and rehab activities, conserving CCTV resources, and avoiding confined space entry.
的問uickview airHD zoom camera gives operators the ability to rapidly and affordably determine sewer condition. It views deep inside sewer lines and manholes to determine if cleaning, repair or further inspection is needed. With a fast, inexpensive assessment, departments can save resources otherwise spent inspecting or repairing where unnecessary.
Upgrading your sewer inspection equipment can be a boon to your long-term productivity, but even the savviest operators need extra time to get up to speed on new tools. Quickview airHD is designed to be durable and user-friendly, so you’ll get the most out of your zoom camera if you build good habits at the start.
Nestled between Calgary and Edmonton lies the City of Red Deer, the third largest city in the province of Alberta, Canada. Known for beautiful walking paths and the Red Deer River that winds through the heart of the city, it’s a majestic place to live for over 100,000 residents. In Red Deer, the summers are long and comfortable, but the winters bring arctic weather. Freezing temperatures present significant challenges for the city’s 14-person wastewater crew, which is responsible for a total of 533.2 km (331 miles) of sanitary sewer pipes and 560.3 km (348 miles) of stormwater pipes.
Thank you to the many customers and partners who visited our booth during WEFTEC 2018 in New Orleans last week. We welcomed nearly 300 guests and enjoyed seeing many of our sales partners from across the country. A special thanks to Best Equipment, our sales partner in Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky, for loaning us their new demo truck for the show.
Envirosight has receivedEnvironmental Protection’s 2018 New Product of the Year award for its Quickview airHD 2.0 zoom assessment camera. The Quickview was one of the highest scoring winners among a record-number of entries in the competition, which honors innovative organizations that have actively made environmental professionals’ jobs easier in the previous year.
Hundreds of municipalities rely on the Quickview airHD to assess sewer condition rapidly and affordably.
Now, this trusted tool can measure the distance to objects observed inside sewer pipes. Users can choose between a free app update that provides quick estimates, or deploy a laser rangefinder accessory for more accurate readings. Knowing the distance to pipe features makes it easier to troubleshoot problems and plan repair work.
Being properly equipped makes sewer inspection more effective. Jim Legg, the Wastewater Operations Supervisor for the Uxbridge, MA Department of Public Works, knows this better than most. “When we got our ROVVER X in 2011, it was our first crawler system,” says Legg. “Before that we were using an old push camera that could only go 70 or 80 feet down a line. There was a lot that we just couldn’t do.” When Uxbridge decided to purchase their first crawler, they looked to their longtime dealer Brian Kennedy of JF McDermott. “We bought from him before and trusted what he had to say,” says Legg. The crew purchased a ROVVER X system installed into an Outpost transport enclosure. This gave them the portability to use the crawler how and where they needed, whether down narrow city streets or on easements. Since then, the crew has purchased a Jetscan video nozzle, a Verisight push camera and a Quickview airHD zoom camera.
Exfiltration is the leakage of wastewater out of a sanitary sewer system through broken or damaged pipes and manholes. Wastewater that leaks out of defective pipe joints and cracks may contaminate ground and surface water and cause a host of other problems, including pipe structure failures due to erosion of soil support, and ground subsidence due to erosion of underground soil.
