A remote visual inspection camera (RVI) is a device that’s used to carry out NDT in awkward or dangerous locations. They remove the need for human access and are operated from a distance. They’re used to inspect multiple locations, including stormwater pipes, drainpipes, sewer pipes and more. An RVI is fitted with HD image capture capability and can return both still and video data.
Nexxis offers a wide range of RVI cameras to enable remote testing of virtually any asset/location. Our cutting-edge portfolio of tools includes water, stormwater and drainpipe inspection cameras, with many being able to add bespoke imaging and lighting capability to suit every environment and application.
There are several reasons that savvy maintenance managers are moving to RVI for inspection tasks. These include:
Each camera has different distance capabilities. Nexxis provide pipe inspection cameras with differing ranges, depending on requirements. How far an individual RVI can travel is dependent on the length of the cable (tether) – this varies from around 50 metres to up to a kilometre in distance.
These robust tools can be used to inspect pretty much any type of pipework. They’re suitable for domestic and commercial applications. Depending on your requirements, an RVI can be tailored as a water, stormwater, drainpipe or sewer inspection camera, with the ability to traverse complex spaces, extended distances and hazardous atmospheres.
Absolutely! RVIs are versatile tools that can be utilised in many other areas. As well as having advanced pipe inspection camera capabilities, maintenance teams are using them to inspect any areas that are difficult or hazardous for humans to access. Typical industries that are taking advantage include oil & gas, mining, aerospace, subsea, power generation, infrastructure and more.
Nexxis offer a wide range of RVIs for rent, lease or purchase. We specialise in bringing technological advantages to our customers, with a design team that can help create an NDT solution for even the most challenging inspection requirements. Whether you need a sewer inspection camera to traverse long distances, a drainpipe inspection camera to seek out a subterranean blockage, or any other type of pipe inspection, we can define the optimal RVI capabilities to carry out the task in the fastest, safest and most accurate manner.
While you might need some basic training, all of the Nexxis pipe inspection cameras are intuitive and easy to operate. Most are designed to be single-operator and are controlled from a distance via a computer or handheld remote. Our team will assist with any necessary training and are always on hand for support if needed.
Yes, they are. Nexxis provide RVIs that either have integrated lighting systems or a payload that allows them to be added. Assets must be well-lit for accurate data to be recorded. In the case of pipes, sewers, drainpipes, water pipes and stormwater inspection cameras, the environment will almost always be dark or poorly lit, making it crucial that the RVI is equipped with built-in and adjustable lighting.
It certainly is and comes as standard with every rental. We offer a world-leading procurement model - if you rent a pipe inspection camera or any other NDT equipment, our support team is always at the end of a phone or online to assist. In addition, renting an RVI from Nexxis means that there are no maintenance issues to worry about – we take care of all of it. You can also chop and change equipment as necessary, therefore you don’t have any precious funds tied up in expensive inspection assets. This eases the strain on maintenance budgets and makes it far simpler to forward plan.
