An industrial endoscope is a commonly used non-destructive testing instrument. It uses imaging algorithms to realize imaging, photographing, shooting, and operation functions. It is portable, integrated, simple, and easy to operate, significantly reducing users’ work intensity and improving detection efficiency. With direct visualization and photo and video storage functions, it is widely used in energy and power, petrochemical, particular inspection industry, mechanical casting, aerospace, food and medical machinery, and other industries. It is often used to detect parts the human eye, such as pipes, engines, fuel tanks, castings, etc., cannot directly see. Check its inner surface for cracks, corrosion, rust, and welding defects, and check its interior for blockages and foreign objects.
Industrial endoscopes can be divided into mechanical control and electrical control according to the probe-guided control method. The S40 on the production line is an excellent representative of these two industrial endoscopes.
S40 series high-definition industrial videoscope adopts a self-innovated embedded imaging system and mechanical guidance control. Like the electrical products in the embedded imaging system, the probe control system uses automatic manual operation to directly pull the wire rope inside the pipeline to control the steering of the probe, so it is easier to use than electric operation, and the manual process is also required for reset. This series is lighter because there is no core component of electronic control – the steering gear system, and it is easier to replace the pipelines of various specifications. Therefore, the S40 series products can be selected when different pipe diameters need to be tested, can be used for multiple purposes, and are more economical to achieve maximum cost savings.
The million ultra-high-definition industrial endoscope S40 series adopts the self-innovated embedded imaging system and electrical probe control system and realizes imaging, photographing, video recording, and operation functions through imaging algorithms. As one of the main components of the probe control system, the steering gear that controls the response can pull the steel wire in the pipeline in multiple directions to realize the 360-degree steering control of the probe. The electronic control system can automatically reset, adjust the steering speed of the investigation, and adjust step by step. It can be observed in all directions without a dead angle, making the operation more flexible.
The entire transmission mechanism adopts rack and pinion transmission through the research on the zero-delay, no-idle stroke variable speed transmission mechanism. This design ensures a constant instantaneous transmission ratio, high stability, accurate and reliable transmission movement, broad transmission power and speed range, high transmission ratio and transmission efficiency, compact structure, reliable operation, and long service life. The electric industrial endoscope operating system generally has a high definition, accurate steering, fast operation, simple operation, vital portability, and strong integration, significantly reducing the user’s work intensity and improving detection efficiency.
Application case of the industrial endoscope in the detection of appearance defects on the inner surface of storage tanks
Recently, our product application engineer came to a large water heater manufacturer to inspect the internal surface defects of the water storage tank with an industrial endoscope. Industrial videoscopes can be used to perform the following:
1. Inner cavity coating inspection: Check the surface defects of the inner cavity coating, such as cracks, peeling, pull wires, scratches, pits, bumps, pits, corrosion, etc.
2. Weld surface defect inspection: check the inner surface of the weld for cracks, pores, slag inclusions, arc craters, flash, incomplete penetration, and weld leakage.
3. Inspection of internal excess: After removing spatter, scale, pits, paint, and rust on the surface of the weld, observe whether there are residual internal debris, foreign matter, and other excess in the inner cavity of the storage tank for further cleaning.
Scope of application:
SEESEM industrial endoscope has a more precise image and is lighter. The probe can be turned 360 degrees, with accurate steering, flexible operation, and powerful functions, which significantly improves the scope of application of the internal surface inspection of parts. In addition to effectively observing the internal conditions of water storage tanks, industrial videoscopes can also detect welding scars, welds, weld formation, and cleanliness of other types of water storage tanks, containers, and pipes used in various processes. It plays an important role.
The customer compared the SEESEM industrial videoscope with a particular brand and was satisfied with the observation results of SEESEM’s two high-definition industries.
It fully recognized the electric steering control million high-definition industrial videoscope SM50 series, Because it has superior performance in terms of image clarity, screen fluency, and operability. SEESEM industrial videoscopes provide better application solutions for detecting surface defects in storage tanks and bring better product application examples to related industries.
