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.

For more than 30 years, the IADC/SPE Drilling Conference and Exhibition has proven itself as the leading drilling event in the E&P world. SPE: The Society of Petroleum Engineers in partnership with the IADC: The International Association of Drilling Contractors, hosts several events every year, alternating annually between Europe and North America and recently expanding programming to the Middle East and Asia Pacific. These events accelerate progress in the oil and gas industry by connecting forward-looking technical presentations to open discussion forums. The technical program enables oil and gas professionals to see through today’s challenges and work collaboratively toward solutions that create a stronger future for an increasingly energy-driven world. RF System Lab has attended various conferences hosted by the SPE since 2011, and 2016 marked the fourth year in attendance.
Chad Parker, one of RF System Lab’s borescope experts, was happy to enjoy the warm weather in Houston, Texas to share the groundbreaking VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) video borescope with IADC/SPE event attendees. He had the opportunity to speak with existing customers about their experience with the easy to use, handheld, fully-articulating VJ-Advance video borescope and was excited to present new customers who stopped by the booth an opportunity to get a hands-on demo of the VJ-ADV in 2.8mm, 3.9mm, and 6.9mm diameters. The VJ-ADV offers remote visual inspection capabilities to petroleum, oil, and gas professionals.
RF System Lab will be attending several conferences and exhibits around the country, so if you missed out on your hands-on demo feel free to see us at these shows:
MRO Americas – Dallas, TX: April 5-7, 2016 – Booth 3927

RF System Lab, a leader in non-destructive testing technology, is excited to announce the arrival of the groundbreaking 6.9mm x 8M VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) video borescope.
The 6.9mm x 8M scope has all of 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. However, as indicated by the name, the 8M (8 meter) VJ-ADV offers a much longer insertion tube, allowing inspection of heat exchangers, boiler tubes, process piping, and more.
Historically, RF System Lab’s line of 6.9mm, battery operated, easy to use, articulating video borescopes have been offered in lengths of 1.5 meters (4 feet, 11 inches), 3 meters (9 feet, 10 inches), and 5 meters (16 feet, 5 inches’). Our borescope experts are thrilled to now be able to offer this, highly anticipated, in-demand 8 meter (26 feet, 3 inches) scope to new and existing customers.
Just one of the many industries that can benefit from the 8 meter borescope is the food manufacturing industry. Remote visual inspection of pipe welds is crucial to find surface flaws, cracks, porosity, unfilled craters, poorly formed beads, and misalignments; all of which could cause delays in production. The 6.9mm x 8M video borescope saves time and money and is ideal for weld inspection because of its long reach, slender size, and articulation, allowing it to easily navigate through piping.
The versatile 6.9mm x 8M VJ-ADV articulating video borescope will quickly become a must-have tool in any engineer’s toolbox but don’t just take our word for it. Please contact one of our borescope experts directly to try the 6.9mm x 8M VJ-Advance for yourself. To make the decision process easy, we offer the industry’s only no-cost, no-obligation demo program. Contact RF System Lab today by visiting our website or call (231) 943-1171.
The 2016 IADC/SPE Drilling Conference takes place March 1-3 in Fort Worth Texas. This conference brings together exploration and production professionals and emphasizes advancements in worldwide drilling operations that address problematic challenges and deliver improved performance.
RF System Lab borescope expert Chad Parker is looking forward to attending this leading drilling event to showcase the VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) articulating video borescope. The VJ-ADV is easy to use with joy-stick controlled articulation and high-resolution, on-board image and video capture. Chad will be onsite in booth 424 to answer questions, provide information and hands-on live demonstrations with 2.8mm, 3.9mm, and 6.9mm diameter scopes. The VJ Advance offers versatile, remote visual inspection capabilities to petroleum, and oil and gas professionals.
The IADC/SPE is comprised of two organizations. The International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC) is dedicated to enhancing the interests of oil and gas and geothermal drilling contractors. Members of the IADC own most of the world’s land and offshore drilling units and drill the vast majority of the wells that produce the planet’s oil and gas. The Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) is a not-for-profit organization whose members engage in energy resources development and production.
Conference Chairperson Bill Ambrose stated “The technical, keynote, and plenary sessions will each provide insights to navigate the current low commodity price environment of our business. The distinguished speakers in our plenary session will explore the theme of “Out with the Old, in with the New” to share ideas about how we will need to adapt and evolve our technologies and practices. Topics will include well efficiency, capital deployment, and new technologies to extract energy sources. Our keynote speakers will bring perspectives from within our industry, as well as from other industries, to address the critical issues we face today.” For more information about the IADC/SPE Drilling Conference, visit their website. RF System lab will be attending many tradeshows throughout the year with live demonstrations.
