EnvirosightEnvirosight Quickview airHD

The new cable-free Quickview airHD camera captures high-definition (HD) video from sewers and transmits it wirelessly to a touchscreen tablet for live viewing. With the Quickview app installed, the tablet offers fingertip control of zoom, illumination, and tilt, as well as image capture and video recording/playback/annotation/sharing. And because the camera has motorized tilt, as well as in-manhole centering capability and hands-free stabilization, set-up takes virtually no time at all.

Pure TechnologiesPure Technologies’ PureRobotics Pipeline Inspection Platform

PureRobotics is a pipeline inspection platform designed to transport sensors and tools vast distances through pipelines. The transporter is safer than manned inspections, especially for wastewater and where regulations are keeping people out of pipelines. The PureRobotics system can be equipped with multi-sensor tools, including an inertial measurement unit, 3-D LIDAR scanning tools, or pull condition assessment tools such as 2-D laser technology that measures a pipeline’s size, shape and level of corrosion.

Syrinix PipeMinder-TSyrinix PipeMinder-T

Providing automated, high-resolution leak detection, plus transient and burst detection, PipeMinder-T transforms how utilities manage their networks. With straightforward installation and a one-year battery life, PipeMinder-T continuously monitors the pipeline, automatically identifying and locating emergent leaks, enabling immediate repair in advance of catastrophic failure. Incorporating hydrophone and geophone acoustic sensors with false positive mitigation and intensive data analytics, PipeMinder-T provides utilities with peace of mind that one-off survey tools cannot offer.
