Our Closed Circuit Television Video (CCTV) pipe inspection process involves sending a camera through sewer lines to examine the state of the pipes from within. Upon review of these videos, we are able to identify, in extreme detail, any deficiencies in the sewer system. CCTV inspection also allows us to evaluate the effectiveness of various maintenance procedures.

Our Pipe Inspection Technologies & Services

Dynamic Drain Technologies offers small and large diameter pipe inspection technologies. Our Rover X crawling cameras allows us to capture, code, record, and deliver PACP reports on pipelines from 6”-84” in diameter. We also use Vivax Metro Tech push cameras to capture footage of smaller diameter (2”-12”) pipelines such as; laterals, roof drains, in-slab sewers, or any pipe that has aggressive bends. Our push camera technologies offer full color, self-leveling, transmitting, and locating features. They are also able to record and take snap shots of defects for LACP coded reports. An exciting new addition to our camera fleet is The Digi Sewer pipe inspection technology and software. This new technology allows us to digitally scan and record footage at a speed of up to 70 feet per second. Laser-guided inspection technology allows us to profile pipe geometry and obtain continuous ovality measurements to verify pipe installation and monitor condition.

The Rover Crawling CCTV Inspection System

Trusted for 20 years, ROVVER inspection crawlers have a modular design that allows quick reconfiguration for any combination of pipe size, material and condition. Short and steerable, ROVVER crawlers navigate past debris and obstructions, climb offsets, and pass through inverts and curved access points. Three chassis sizes allow inspection of pipelines 4” to 60” diameter. ROVVER uses a fully automatic cable reel, which has a tension sensor to reduce the pulling burden on the crawler (thus extending its range), as well as to prevent cable tangles during backward crawl.Compact and consuming minimal power, ROVVER systems are also more portable and require substantially less operational overhead. With an installed base of more than 4000 systems worldwide, ROVVER has a track record for productivity, low cost of ownership, and exceptional support and service.”

Power to Maneuver

  • ROVVER was the first inspection crawler to introduce a compact, steerable 6-wheel drive, giving operators the agility to navigate past obstacles that stop other crawlers.
  • ROVVER X adds to that legacy with CAN-bus controls, which allow you to perform multiple functions concurrently. Now you can steer while panning the camera and adjusting camera lift height.
  • Proportional joysticks give you fine control over speed and direction, and also let you pivot in place (perform zero-degree turns).

Many Ways to Inspect

  • Generate side-scan images that capture every square inch of a pipe’s interior surface. With DigiSewer, you can perform detailed inspection three times faster than with CCTV—all at a price point and learning curve anyone can manage.
  • Inspection results are optimized for rapid transmission (3000 ft/GB) and analysis. Attach the DigiSewer laser ring, and you can also scan for pipe deformity.
  • ROVVER X’s twin lasers project measurement dots 2” apart, helping you size features and defects.

ROVVER X uses CAN-bus, the same control architecture built into modern automobiles. This gives us capabilities not found anywhere else. When connected wirelessly or via LAN, the pendant updates its firmware automatically, ensuring the latest features and maximum reliability. High-bandwidth communications mean you can control any number of camera, crawler and accessory functions simultaneously. With only six conductors, lightweight ROVVER X cable is easy to pull long distances, and also easy to field-reterminate. Kevlar gives it a 1000-lb. break strength, and a tough jacket maximizes abrasion resistance. CAN-bus architecture supports thousands of functions over a single wire pair. ROVVER X will track ovality along the full length of the pipe and generate a graphical report. Underground Inspections We always provide you with a copy of your video pipe inspection on a thumb drive, cd and on YouTube so you can have it for future reference. We generate a PACP documented report for each inspection. Prompt repair of damaged and defective lines results in a reduction in the number of trouble spots, infiltration, inflow, and general deterioration. VeriSight Digital Push Cameras Dynamic Drain utilizes the VeriSight’s digital LCD screen to identify defects in full color. With an internal memory of 90 hours we are sure not to miss a moment inside your sewer, drain or pipe. This unit allows us to upload directly to a USB and upload to YouTube within moments. This high-sensory LED lit camera provides a full-color inspection that is able to be provided to you for future use. This camera can be used in pipes ranging from 2-inches in diameter up to 9-inches. This camera also has a sonde radio-frequency emitter that can be used in conjunction with our VeriSight locator to locate the exact locations of any underground infrastructure. Utility Locating Dynamic Drain Technologies uses high-performance pipe and cable locators for all routine locating. These high-performance locators each have a receiver and a transmitter. The receiver detects electromagnetic signals emitted from pipes. These signals can be naturally occurring 60 Hz electrical noise and low-frequency radio waves; or the transmitter can place these signals on the pipes. There are several different ways we can place a signal onto a pipe. The best way is to connect the transmitter directly to the pipe. If a direct connection is not available, a signal can be induced onto a pipe using a clamp that encircles the pipe or a coil lying above the pipe. These locators detect metal pipes and cables that are welded, soldered, or threaded together.
