The CUES Digital Universal Camera (DUC) is a semi-autonomous, high resolution, digital CCTV, side-scanning camera designed for rapid and detailed condition assessment of your wastewater system.

New federal pipeline integrity rules require utility companies to evaluate thousands of gas mains buried beneath highways, railroad tracks and airport runways – each and every one cased inside a larger pipe. The research and development team at ULC Robotics in New York has developed a robotic inspection tool that is capable of inspecting and gathering critical data about the integrity of cased pipe.

For more than 30 years, video inspection has been a fundamental analytical tool for the evaluation and assessment of pipeline integrity. Originally developed as an aid for sewer system maintenance, video inspection equipment has played a key role in the development of a variety of trenchless rehabilitation methods.

Sewer lines will soon be getting a major overhaul in the city of Fort Worth, TX. The city council approved a $446,192 engineering contract with White Rock Consultants to begin work on the new improvement project. Fort Worth is paying for the project using money already budgeted in the Water and Sewer Fund.

Advances in inspection technologies have played a significant role in the ability to effectively rehabilitate underground sewer infrastructure.

The SuperVision SAT lateral launch system crawls 300 feet down mainlines 6-inches and larger, and then inserts its camera as far as 100 feet into laterals 3.5 inches and larger.

RedZone’s Multi-Sensor Inspection (MSI) service integrates data from six sensors on the powerful Responder robotic platform, targeted for large diameter pipe 84 inches.

The Portable Mini-Mainline is designed for small- to medium-sized municipalities and contractors looking for an affordable entry level Mainline Video Inspection System.
