Non-visitable pipes, and in particular the waste water ducts require maintenance to detect network anomalies such as cracks, clogging, pipe deformations, presence of deposits, roots, pipe collapse or penetrating lateral pipes.
The ECA Group’s Pipe Cruiser allows a precise diagnosis of the network by identifying these anomalies and measuring them in real time.
This TV inspection system is operational on pipes with internal diameter ranging from 150 to 2000mm; it incorporates a swivelling head colour camera with built-in lights and measuring lasers, mounted on a 6-wheel drive and steerable motorized crawler. For diameters as from 250 mm, the system can incorporate a swivelling head camera with an optical 10x zoom.
The system also measures the pipe slope and its deflection: all anomalies and measurements are traced and reported via the DIMFIS software.
The trolley is very powerful, and permits a several hundred meters travel into the pipe from the entry point; therefore, an umbilical cable up to 500m long is stored in an automatically controlled winch.
