Borescoping

SMS has successfully applied borescope inspection for hazards assessment and risk characterization to a variety of situations, equipment, and conditions.  SMS has performed hazards analysis on the use of borescope equipment and developed standard operating procedures to guide the safe use of borescopes for inspection and hazards assessment.

Our equipment is small, light-weight, and easily transported to the jobsite.  Still photos or video can be recorded to a removable memory card and the video can be viewed and copied onto a computer for more detailed review and assessment.  Our unit has been tested for areas that have potentially hazardous environments.  It is flammable atmosphere rated and the same unit has been used by the military in many hazardous locations.

With our borescope equipment, inspection of tight, hard-to-reach, or otherwise inaccessible hidden spaces can provide valuable information for assessment.  Areas such as duct work, piping, wall cavities, inside of process equipment, etc. can be safely visually inspected up to a length of 5 m.  The 6 mm diameter articulating tip allows the operator to see in all directions with the borescope camera tip, which can be inserted into very tight and normally inaccessible cavities to determine if contamination is present.

With 5 levels of temperature controlled LED lighting built into the tip, the borescope is capable of visual inspection of dark and distant locations and adjusting the light for the unique situation.
