Extend The Life Of Your Inspection System Cables
Extend The Life Of Your Cables By Following These Simple Tips
The most common repairs done to all camera systems, from push camera to mainline inspection systems, are cable repairs.
If these simple rules are followed you can dramatically reduce the number of cable repairs your camera or mainline inspection system needs. You can save yourself upwards of $5,000per year!
1. Inspect your rollers or layer winder for wear. A worn roller can be as sharp as a knife and cut the sheath of your cable.
2. Monitor that the cable is layering evenly on the reel of your inspection camera. A twisted or poorly layered cable is likely to break internally and cause intermittent problems.
3. Inspect the full length of your cable regularly. Cuts in the sheath will allow water ingress which will cause for coax and screen wires to corrode and break. These are among the most labour intensive to repair and often will require the entire cable to be replaced. If rectified early this will not give any continuous problems.
