Definition - What does Axial Camera mean?
An axial camera is a video inspection method that allows for the inspection of pipelines without the need for trenching to locate damaged areas. These cameras are used for larger diameter pipes and use a fixed lens that is capable of giving a complete view of the pipe interior.
Trenchless inspection techniques enable contractors to provide localized repairs and thus save time and the cost of rehabilitation.
Trenchlesspedia explains Axial Camera
Axial cameras are generally made of stainless steel and fabric tubing that helps the camera to slide easily around bends. It has an automatic self-leveling feature that always provides an upright picture. There are various types of axial cameras with specification based on the nominal diameter (DN) range of the pipes to be inspected. The camera can be connected to crawlers or push cameras and can be easily maneuvered around bends.
