Its highly scalable design allows for quick and informative inspections of pipes from 150 to 1000 mm (5.9"-40") up to 250 meters (820') long.
"We are very proud to introduce STORMER S3000 to our clients, as it offers unparalleled quality of inspections at double the speed of most traditional viewing devices. Besides, it is a universal inspection tool - its design and speed can be easily adjusted to fit specific requirements of most pipeline applications, which means that you only need to purchase one device instead of several", said Terry Peristerakis, Sales Manager at Medit, Inc.
Other Outstanding Features
The Pipe Inspection Crawler STORMER S3000 (http://www.fiberscope.net/pipe-crawler-robot-stormer.html) is one of the most reliable, sophisticated, yet affordable devices among products of its class. It is made of innovative, highly durable materials, which greatly increases its longevity even after multiple cycles of inspections.
Equipped with a pan-and-tilt camera with continuous rotation and 0.5 lux sensitive CMOS chip (720x576 pixels), it travels within a pipe capturing every detail of its interior. Its Stainless steel housing with Aluminum anodized finish is completely waterproof and made to withstand up to 5.5 bar pressure (55 meters in fresh water). The integrated LED lights provide bright, even illumination that can be adjusted depending on the inspection settings.
The system works with standard 200m reinforced Kevlar braided insertion probes. However, 250m probes are also available.
The crawler comes with two camera mounts and several sets of wheels for different pipe diameters. The front camera mount allows to inspect pipes of small diameter, whereas top camera mount is designed for inspection of bigger diameter pipes.
The crawler offers the choice of 5 speeds and is a 15 Nm 4 wheel drive with chain transmission. It runs on 48 V DC motor. Optional accessories include inclinometer that informs operators of the pipe gradient.
The control unit with LED backlit 10.4” TFT flat panel monitor (800x600 pixels), DVR and silicon rubber control buttons, is packed in a rugged, portable Pelican case. Operators can view images on site, record them in MPEG2 format, process them, using WinCan compatible software and put in up to 6 pages of inspection comments. The information can then be saved to a USB memory stick that easily connects to the main control panel.
It uses 110v or 240v mains or 1KVA generator power inlet.
