Power-Gen International is taking place December 9-11, 2014 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.  This large-scale event promises to feature over 20,000 power professionals from more than 90 countries, more than 200 of the industry’s top speakers, and at least 1,400 exhibiting companies.  Among those impressive exhibits is the RF System Lab booth, featuring some of the most advanced technology in remote visual inspection: the VJ-Advance articulating video borescope.

The innovative VJ-Advance video borescope is a high-quality inspection camera at a price that power professionals can afford.  An essential tool for any type of power gen facility, the VJ-Advance line of articulating video borescopes helps maximize efficiency, minimize downtime, and enhance productivity in all facets of the power generation industry; whether you work in the fossil fuel, nuclear, or renewable energy markets.  Remote visual inspection is a quick, easy, and non-destructive way to assess turbines, generators and pumps, feed-water heaters, condensers and heat exchangers, primary and secondary piping, motor operating valves, gearboxes, reactor vessels, and other internal components without the costly, time-consuming disassembly of machinery and systems to locate trouble spots.

Power generation experts can test out the VJ-Advance video borescope at Power-Gen International by visiting booth 4879.  Borescope experts, Casey O’Tool, and Chad Parker will be on site to answer your remote visual inspection questions and to help attendees find efficient methods to internally inspect their machinery. Exhibits open at 11:30am on Tuesday, Dec. 9th.

The ASNT Annual Conference, put on by the American Society of Nondestructive Testing, took place in Charleston, SC during October 27-30, 2014. The conference featured over 165 exhibitors; all sharing the most cutting edge products in Non-destructive Testing (NDT).

Among those products was the ground breaking VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) video borescope from RF System Lab, which is making waves as a top choice for remote visual inspection in a wide variety of industries. The VJ-ADV was among many other remote visual inspection tools, which is an excellent indication that there is a definite need for high-quality internal inspection equipment.

RF System Lab’s Director of Sales and Marketing, Duncan White, and Sales Consultant, Zack Wessels, were onsite at the ASNT Annual Conference and had a great time meeting with current customers like Watco and Sulzer. They were also fortunate to have a booth location with excellent neighbors to connect with. One company they wanted to make sure to recognize, whose booth was across the aisle from the RF System Lab booth, was Labino, a leading manufacturer of UV and white light products.

All in all, the ASNT Annual Conference was an event that was well attended and should not be missed by any NDT or Quality Control professional. RF System Lab has already booked space for 2015 and is looking forward to making even more connections.
