Internal Pipe Video Inspections

As a part of any comprehensive fire sprinkler system corrosion assessment program a video scope is used to collect visual evidence of corrosion activity inside the system. A pipe inspection using video scoping inside the fire sprinkler system piping provides for in-situ observation of the following:

  1. Visual evidence of trapped air in wet pipe fire sprinkler systems and trapped water in dry pipe fire sprinkler systems
  2. Visual evidence of solids accumulations within the piping – color, texture and location of the solids build-up within the piping
  3. Visual evidence of corrosion damage, tuberculation and metal loss on the piping – useful in the selection of locations for pipe replacement and/or flushing
  4. Visual evidence of piping or sprinkler orifice obstructions that would prevent system actuation during a fire

Due to the highly localized nature of corrosion in fire sprinkler systems we believe that other non-destructive methods of pipe investigation are severely limited in their ability to reproduce the wealth of data provided from an internal video inspection.
