The ROVVER X sewer inspection crawler is known for its smart, rugged design. Each of its components is thoughtfully constructed to guarantee what matters most to operators: lowering resistance to achieve better crawler performance and greater reliability. Nowhere is this more true than with ROVVER X’s cable.
In this day and age, sewer inspection systems can provide us with so much more than video footage. Advanced technologies like laser profiling allow sewer professionals to get deeper insights on pipe qualities like ovality, alignment, capacity and more. The laser profiler attachment for the ROVVER X sewer inspection system makes it easy to capture geometric profiles for these purposes.
In July 2021, Brad Richardson and Travis Johnson were on the hunt for a CCTV inspection camera system to help the pair kickstart the new environmental branch of Richardson’s contracting business.
Manholes are underground assets that allow for easy access to sewer components for cleaning, maintenance and inspection. They are subject to the extreme conditions that all wastewater facilities handle, in addition to weather and traffic stress from the surface. As such, inspecting these necessary access points to ensure their integrity is an important part of collection system maintenance.
In September 2001, Ground Penetrating Radar Systems (GPRS) entered the construction service industry as a concrete scanning specialist. Fast forward 20 years, and this Toledo, OH-based powerhouse is now the country's largest utility locating, concrete scanning, and video pipe inspection company. With a 99.8% accuracy rating on over 250,000 projects, GPRS is well-known in the industry for its commitment to providing safe, comprehensive subsurface solutions.
In the early 2000s, Mark James settled down with his wife in the City of Redmond, OR. James and his wife were quickly taken by the area’s small-town charm. And they weren’t alone—from 2000 to 2006, Redmond’s population grew by a whopping 74%. The town became a bonafide city, but it’s held onto its tight-knit community values over the years.
A Variety of Vehicles
“My favorite part of the job is when a customer asks for a unique feature in their vehicle, and we get to come up with creative solutions to make everything fit together. I like that no two days are the same.”
In 1943, the U.S. Army purchased the small town of Richland, Washington and its surrounding area to build a nuclear production complex. The community was quickly converted into living quarters for the thousands of soldiers working at what became known as the Hanford Site. The plutonium manufactured at the complex was instrumental to the Manhattan Project, which produced the world’s first nuclear weapons during World War II.
Without the proper insight into system condition, sewer cleaning can lead to a big waste of time, money and water. Rugged, easy-to-use inspection technologies help wastewater pros eliminate guesswork, select the right nozzle for the job, and focus their cleaning efforts where it matters most. Read on to learn how sewer cleaning programs across North America benefit from inspection capabilities.
Utility locating is the process of locating and marking buried utility lines, including gas and sewer lines, phone cables and others. Operators use locating equipment and sensors to determine the location of utilities, then use markers such as chalk and spray paint to map where utilities are underground. The main goal of locating services is to ensure utility damage prevention.
