CCTV Pipeline Division

cctv-vanAP Drain Inspections has acquired a reputation as being a technologically advanced company. The CCTV Pipeline Division carries out internal inspection of underground assets such as sewers, storm water pipes and culverts using specialised closed circuit television systems. Our main line colour pipeline inspection system offers a complete CCTV survey configuration that includes camera, tractors and control systems with full video and approved Sydney Water reporting facilities.

The tractor system is mounted within a van allowing the operator and the client to view the interior of the pipe in the comfort and safety of an air-conditioned office environment. Hard copy colour photographs and reports can be printed immediately on site. On screen text display provides full survey details and an accurate counter indicates the distance traveled within the pipe.

The tractor can travel up to 200 metres from the start point in once continuous run saving costly time in relocating the van. The cable rewind reel is fully motorized to allow rapid retrieval resulting in more metres surveyed per hour than manual methods.

cctv-insertionCCTV Inspections can be performed in pipe sizes ranging from 100mm - 1200mm. All of AP Drain Inspections main line camera systems have built in radio locators so detection of pipe direction underground can be easily determined. The versatility of our inspection concept and range of camera sizes, shapes and mobility units enables inspections to be carried out almost anywhere.
