Remote Visual Inspection and FME Foreign Material Exclusion

Turbine Inspections - HP Steam Inlet Nozzles

Probably the most prolific application for the videoborescope are applications in turbines, both steam turbines and gas turbines, though the applications are very different for each.  Today we’re going to concentrate on nozzle block and blade inspections in High Pressure (HP) steam turbines through access from a removed control or [more]

Cement Plant Inspection

One would think cement manufacturing would be a fairly straightforward procedure, though in fact, it is a very complex process requiring precise temperature controls and airflow patterns.  Because of this, both fuel and product lines must flow freely.  The process also requires temperatures above 2000 degrees Fahrenheit requiring refractory lining [more]

Floor Drain Inspections

Floor drains are mostly taken for granted and rarely considered for inspection until they don’t work.  From a power generation plant to a food processing facility, having water or other material back-up into the plant is never a good thing.  There are several problems that can occur within a simple [more]

Foreign Material Exclusion (FME) Retrievals

In our experience, when discussing applications for RVI (remote visual inspection), one of the top on the list is FME (Foreign Material Exclusion) retrievals.  It goes by many acronyms depending upon the particular industry, some people call it FOSAR (Foreign Object Search and Retrieval),  loose parts retrieval,  or foreign object [more]
