CCTV Pipeline Inspection

    SUI can perform pipe inspections from pipe sizes ranging from 4- to 72-inches in diameter, and up to 1,000 feet in length, while maintaining the camera centered in the pipe. Our PACP certified operators have the training and experience to properly identify and code pipe defects in accordance with PACP coding standards. With a built in radio frequency transmitter (sonde), the location of the crawler, pipe defects, and service laterals can be marked on the ground surface for subsequent repairs.
    Limited Accessibility? No Problem.
    Although the Envirosight RovverX system is typically installed in a CCTV over-the-road inspection vehicle, the system can be removed from the vehicle in a matter of minutes and installed on an ATV, UTV, or tracked vehicle to access “off road” inspection locations. When a utility vehicle can’t reach the access point (manholes, outfalls, etc.), the individual components (cable reel, crawler, control pendant and generator) are portable and may be carried there.


    • Comprehensive investigation to determine existing pipe conditions
    • Assist with determining appropriate corrective measures
    • Sonde follows the crawler above ground to determine pipe alignment and direction
    • Determine the pitch and elevation of the pipe
    • Perform annual inspections to develop a repair and/or replacement plan

    • Determine volume loss due to sedimentation
    • Determine pipe ovality
    • Emergency situations caused by pipe failure and blockage
    • Pre- and post-construction inspections in support of project close-out requirements
    • Incorporate inspections into a GIS database

    What is the Pitch or Elevation of the Pipe?
    The Envirosight RovverX camera system has the capability to capture pipe inclination.  Pipe inclination can be measured in either percent or degrees. Utilizing known pipe invert elevations at each end of the pipe segment, the inclinometer survey can be compared to construction drawings to verify the pipe was installed at the correct elevation and to determine the location of high and low points, sags, and humps.
    Need to determine volume loss and ovality of your pipe?
    Collect 360 degrees of pipe geometry at speeds up to 70 feet per minute utilizing laser profiling. Laser profiling allows the end user to evaluate a pipe from the comfort of their desk. Calculations can be performed to determine the ovality of a pipe, amount of volume loss due to sediment, root balls, debris, and other foreign matter.
