POWER-GEN International 2016 brought together industry leaders in power generation. This year’s event hosted more than 1,200 companies, across all sectors of the industry, and over 22,000 attendees. Some of the latest technology in power generation was featured, including the VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) Video Borescope from RF System Lab.

Borescope expert, Jess Kuznicki, pictured above, exhibited for RF System Lab at this year’s event. Jess was happy to answer a wide range of questions about remote visual inspection and the VJ-Advance Video Borescope. As a fully articulating video borescope, the VJ-Advance has become an instrumental tool for power generation inspection. Equipment uptime is critical for power generation and video borescopes allow for routine inspections to ensure machines are running smoothly. The VJ-Advance can save power-gen technicians days of inspection time over the working life of the product.

Weren’t able to attend the event? We will ship you a VJ-Advance articulating video borescope at no cost so you can evaluate it at your facility, in your own time. To find out more about our no obligation borescope demo program, visit our website.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) makes it apparent that only airworthy aircraft should be operated. Airworthiness is the measure of an aircraft’s suitability for safe flight. The airworthiness certificate issued by the FAA, certifies that the aircraft is airworthy.

The FAA puts out what are called Special Airworthiness Information Bulletins, or SAIBs, to alert, educate, or make recommendations to the aviation community.

The Exploration and Production Industry’s premier drilling event, the IADC/SPE Drilling Conference and Exhibition is coming up next week at the Fort Worth Convention Center. The conference has gained a reputation for being an excellent forum for discussing challenges that affect the E&P industry and this year’s conference is no exception.

The conference website states that the technical programs, keynote and plenary session will address many of the challenges the E&P industry is facing in these unprecedented times. The plenary session will feature a panel of outstanding speakers who will express their opinions and ideas on the rapid evolution of unconventional oil and gas development and the corresponding demands associated with these large-scale, factory style projects.

In the oil and gas industry, time is money. Our product line, the VJ-Advance line of articulating video borescopes, helps to save both by allowing professionals in the industry to do a visual inspection of internal components without a costly and time-consuming teardown.

RF System Lab will be one of more than 70 exhibitors showcasing at this event. Stop by booth #828 to meet Jess Kuznicki, sales consultant from RF System Lab starting at 10am on Tuesday, March 4th and test the ground breaking VJ-ADV Video borescope yourself.

By all accounts, the 14th Annual Great Lakes Aviation Conference was a big success. The 2014 event featured keynote speakers and a maintenance symposium covering everything from aircraft engine inspections to how to buy and stay proficient flying retired warbirds. The exhibition floor contained a wide variety of vendors including aviation schools, aircraft manufacturers, and the Yankee Air Museum and their team of “Rosie The Riveters”.

RF System Lab was this year’s proud sponsor of the Maintenance Symposium and scheduled speaker at the event. We invited Rich Bray, from Kalitta Air, to join us as we discussed video borescope inspections. Attendees were also given time to use the VJ-Advance video borescopes we brought to the event to try on a Pratt & Whitney JT8D combustion chamber. The response we received was very positive as people who have used borescopes and who have never used borescopes were able to quickly and easily inspect the combustion chamber using a VJ-Advance video borescope.

If you were unable to test drive the VJ-Advance video borescope at the 2014 Great Lakes Aviation Conference, we would like to offer you a free trial. To make the decision process easy, we offer the industry’s only no-cost, no-obligation demo program so you can evaluate the VJ-Advance line of video borescope in your facility doing your inspections, before you decide to buy.

The new 2.8mm VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) has all the same features as the original, flagship 6.9mm VJ-Advance, including four-way joystick-controlled camera articulation, medical grade camera technology, and trigger activated image capture.

As a leader in non-destructive testing technology, we are proud to announce a new addition to our family of video borescopes. The VJ-Advance video borescope line is well-established in the remote visual inspection industry as a preferred diagnostic device for various applications in aviation, oil and gas, chemical processing and automotive manufacturing.

The new 2.8mm VJ-Advance has all the same features as the original, flagship 6.9mm VJ-Advance, including four-way joystick-controlled camera articulation, medical grade camera technology, and trigger activated image capture. “The one-handed, piston-grip design of the VJ-Advance is unrivaled in the video borescope industry, and it’s great to add another new borescope to our line-up,” said Duncan White, Director of Sales and Marketing at RF System Lab. “Our new 2.8mm scope is the smallest video-based borescope with full four-way articulation in the world. It’s really amazing the first time you see it in action – it’s going to be a fantastic alternative to fiber-based scopes for those applications requiring an ultra-thin insertion tube.”

Early interest in the 2.8mm VJ-Advance video borescope has been focused on the aerospace, power-gen and metal casting industries, although any application that requires a sub-4mm borescope is a possible fit. In particular, technicians who have in the past been limited to using fiber-based scopes should consider the new 2.8mm borescope, as it is an excellent replacement for fiberoptic scopes that can be easily damaged. Additionally, these older, fiber-based scopes typically require viewing through an eyepiece, as opposed to the flip-up LCD display screen on the VJ-Advance.

This latest VJ-Advance joins RF System Lab’s existing line of 3.9mm and 6.9mm video borescopes. Please contact us directly to determine which model is right for your needs. To make the decision process easy, we offer the industry’s only no-cost, no-obligation demo program so you can evaluate the new 2.8mm video borescope in your facility doing your inspections, before you decide to buy.
