Application of industrial endoscope in power industry

October 22, 2020

In China, the internal cleanliness inspection of power station boilers is mainly accomplished by industrial endoscope. Industrial electronic endoscopes are in demand in the metal industry of power plants, power construction companies, power research institutes and other boiler testing units. The actual operation of power industry is mainly to probe and probe line have certain requirements.

The first is that the diameter of the wire can be less 4mm, with extremely high wear resistance and certain flexibility.The second kind is the banana skin sounding line (similar to the cable), which has a certain abrasion resistance and flexibility. The third kind is the hard thrust sounding line (GFRP material), which has a high cost performance.

Industrial endoscopes are used in various power plant/power units to inspect important equipment such as turbines, pipes, condenser pipes, pumps, boilers, heat exchangers, valves, pressure vessels, and other equipment for defect detection and condition monitoring.Industrial endoscope can effectively improve the staff to check out all kinds of equipment problems, to check the corrosion, rust spot, crack, iron scrap foreign body, butt weld and other quality defects in the components.

In the inspection of power plant units, endoscope is mainly used for the inspection and maintenance of the crew according to weight. The main inspection objects are the heating surface and the header, and the inspection of other components is relatively easier.The small size, portability and mobility of the instrument can greatly reduce the working intensity and improve the working efficiency. The portable battery is more convenient for working in poor environments such as narrow space, high climbing and field work.

The development of industrial video endoscopy shows its technical advantages, such as brighter and brighter single lamp probe, higher resolution, more fine and wear-resistant metal winding wire, lighter to carry and easier to operate, etc.At present, domestic rigid pusher probes and high-end industrial endoscopes of one main machine are not tight enough to better complete the endoscopes of power industry and adapt to various working conditions in power plants.
