Closed Circuit Television Video inspection is essential for assessing the condition of the pipe to determine if replacement is required, or, if not, which rehabilitation method would provide the most cost-effective remedy. Sewers are prone to a wide number of constructional and operational problems including open/displaced joints, roots, infiltration & inflow, cracking, fracturing, exfiltration, collapse, deformation and more. Therefore, sewer CCTV inspection still remains the best tool for locating and evaluating these structural defects in underground pipes. Below are a few reasons why we use CCTV cameras to conduct sewer inspections.

- Inspection of sewer lines for evaluation of new system construction for compliance to engineering specifications.
- Evaluating current conditions of pipe.
- Evaluating infiltration & inflow problems.
- Evaluating the effectiveness of any cleaning operations.
- Planning of sewer renewals of older systems.
- Necessary repairs can be pinpointed reducing excessive
amounts of excavation.
- Inspection of the sewer lines to avoid having to repair underground lines before the roads have been resurfaced.
- Sewer lines adjacent to water mains scheduled for replacement to avoid having two dig-ups.

The cameras and equipment can be used for inspecting pipe diameters from 3" through 48" diameter with a maximum cable length of 250 meters.

SCS utilizes different CCTV television cameras capable of maneuvering through pipelines as small as 3' inches and as large as 48' inches in diameter, for inspecting underground sewers and pipelines. Below are some of the cameras SCS uses.

Pan, Tilt and Zoom Camera:

The Pan and Tilt Camera is typically mounted on a self-propelled transporter and is remotely controlled from the TV truck, combined with camera controls that provide the ability to overlay alpha-numeric data on the video image to provide a great deal of information, including date, line ID and distance from manhole, etc. When performing CCTV inspections, SCS technicians use the pan & tilt cameras and video equipment to inspect and record pipe conditions, pipe walls, joints and service connections. The image and overlay data is transmitted to the van and recorded onto DVD. At the same time, coded data is entered into an Access Database and coded in the WRc standards (other formats available upon request). The completed video inspection provides an invaluable record for making maintenance and repair decisions. When the inspections are complete, a report containing a comprehensive pipeline profile and evaluation is printed to accompany each video inspection.

Our high resolution Pan & Tilt camera systems can be used to detect open and offset joints along with cracks, fractures, breaks, leaks, infiltration, root intrusions, etc. When the CCTV cameras are mounted on tractors, the technician can quickly and efficiently inspect and document hundreds of meters of pipe each day.

Inspections are available on DVD-R format and are DVD player compatible. (other formats are available upon request.)

Mini Camera:

Pipe sizes this camera is used for: 3" (75mm) to 6" (150mm)

For small diameter pipes this camera and equipment is portable and independent. This camera system allows the operator to view defects in pipes as small as 3" in diameter, and record the inspection on video.

Inspections are available on DVD-R format and are DVD player compatible. (other formats are available upon request.)

LAMP Camera Inspection System:

The self propelled (motorized crawler) LAMP system accomplishes a one pass pan and tilt inspection of the mainline ranging from 6" through 24" diameter, with a simultaneous inspection of the adjacent lateral services up to 80 ft. Equipped with two high resolution cameras, the LAMP system allows a picture in picture feature which enables the operator to monitor the pan and tilt inspection of the mainline and launch a camera from the mainline to inspect the adjacent lateral service. The LAMP system is an indispensable inspection tool for identifying the structural condition of lateral services as well as mainline sewers!

Inspections are available on DVD-R format and are DVD player compatible. (other formats are available upon request.)



Locating


SCS uses the Dynatel 2250 electronic locator to pinpoint the exact location of underground services, pipe defects, buried manholes or line deflections. By sending a transmitter down the line with the CCTV inspection camera we can carry the transmitter to the exact point that needs to be located. While above ground we trace this location with the receiver, giving us an exact location of where we are in the line.
