I had the amazing opportunity to attend the NACE CORROSION 2012 Conference and Expo in beautiful Salt Lake City last week (March 11-15). The show was comprised of more than 5,000 industry professionals and 350+ exhibitors from around the world, so needless to say it was a busy week for the VJ- Advance video borescope from RF System Lab.
We were situated in the equipment pavilion next to some incredible NDT equipment, but even in my biased opinion, I think our 6.9mm video borescope received more than its fair share of attention. The portability of the VJ-ADV really stands out at a show like this. With such large crowds, it really was enjoyable to watch borescope veterans and novice alike respond so positively to the borescope’s ergonomic design and high quality video and picture resolution.
While most of the visual inspection scenarios I discussed didn’t require an outside diameter of less than 6.9mm, that doesn’t mean the 3.9mm video borescope was forgotten. Attendees were consistently amazed that such a small digital camera could produce such a clear image. After I explained that RF System Lab had released a 3.9mm outside diameter unit with a 3.0M length insertion tube, the ideas for potential inspections scenarios grew greatly. From heat exchangers, to seamless tubing, all the way through corrosion inspections of small internal diameter pipes, they realized the VJ- Advance 3.9mm/3.0m was a video borescope that could solve some serious problems for them.
I’d also like to say a very heartfelt thank you to two special friends from National Grid and HDR|Schiff. They were so excited about the high quality of our video borescope they were literally pulling acquaintances from across the expo center to make sure they had a chance to experience the ground breaking 4-way joystick control of the VJ- Advance video borescope for themselves.
