Pan and Tilt Camera
Definition - What does Pan and Tilt Camera mean?
Pan and tilt cameras are cameras that are capable of performing pan and tilt operations. This helps the operator to focus on specific areas to gain a better idea of the condition of the inside of a pipe.
Closed-circuit television inspection (CCTVI) has enabled trenchless inspection of all sizes of pipelines with ease. Using trenchless rehabilitation methods it is possible to repair problem areas without the need to dig up the surface and expose the pipe.

The pan and tilt video inspection tool is equipped with a lens that can spin and allow the operator to focus on any desired area within the pipe. Pan and tilt cameras are especially used to inspect walls, joints, leaks and seals. It can also be used to inspect large areas such as storage tanks, chambers and large-diameter pipelines.
The remote control operation enables illuminating and zooming to inspect for corrosion, pitting, blistering etc. due to the presence of hydrogen sulfide. It also helps the operator to take photos and videos for later inspection.
