Galveston, Texas is a nice, warm place to visit this time of year. RF System Lab’s borescope expert, Zack Wessels, was able to take a walk on the beach on his way to exhibit at the 2015 API Inspection Summit. The summit took place January 26- 29, 2015 at the Galveston Island Convention Center. This year’s conference focused on asset integrity through corrosion management, inspection, and engineering technology and brought together petroleum experts for three days of exhibits and presentations.

Zack had a great experience while presenting the VJ-Advance articulating video borescope. Not only did he get a chance to network with other exhibitors and learn more about their resources, he was able to connect with current and potential clients, and even got to catch the keynote speech by John Felmy, Chief Economist of API.

Despite the drop in price for petroleum, attendees and vendors were extremely optimistic and still showed a great interest in the VJ-Advance video borescope for internal inspections — especially in combination with access panels. These suction-like panels allow maintenance professionals to permanent and easily gain closer access to internal parts that are being inspected. They’re a great compliment to the VJ-Advance, which easily snakes through those panels to complete remote visual inspection and confirm the existence of corrosion of other defects.

The API Inspection Summit was a well-done show and RF System Lab was glad to have been a part of it. If you were unable to attend the summit and test out the VJ-Advance video borescope, you can still demo the VJ-Advance onsite at your own facility. Learn how to take advantage of our no-cost, no-obligation demo program by visiting the RF System Lab website. 

RF System Lab is looking forward to returning to the 2015 American Petroleum Institute (API) Inspection Summit.  The API Inspection Summit is taking place January 26-29, 2015 at the Galveston Island Convention Center in Galveston, TX.  The four-day summit is focused on asset integrity through corrosion management, inspection, and engineering technology as applicable to the petroleum industry.  According to the event website, each day focuses on presentations relevant to upstream, midstream, and downstream operation and integrity management and provides an opportunity to learn about new and existing industry codes and standards. API Inspection Summit also provides a valuable opportunity to hear about emerging trends from experts and to discuss new and existing issues in inspection and AIM technology.

Additionally, the API Inspection Summit features an exhibit hall with the newest and best technology in the petroleum industry.  Among those featured products is RF System Lab’s ergonomic VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) video borescope.  With its joystick controlled 360-degree articulation and extremely portable weight of just 23 ounces, the AA battery-powered VJ-ADV is the ideal inspection camera for any oil and gas maintenance professional.  Complete any inspection with confidence using the VJ-ADV’s high-resolution photo and video capture capabilities.

Petroleum experts can test out the VJ-ADV video borescope at the API Inspection Summit by visiting us at booth 412.  Borescope expert and Sales Consultant Zack Wessels will be on site to answer any video borescope questions and to help attendees find the best ways to complete their remote visual inspections.  Exhibits open on Tuesday, January 27at 7:30am.

If companies are unable to make it to the API Inspection Summit and want to see the VJ-Advance firsthand, there is still a chance to test the video borescope onsite at their facility.  Petroleum maintenance professionals can sign up for the no-cost, no-obligation demo program.  For more information about RF System Lab or the VJ-Advance video borescope, call (231) 943-1171.
