Power-Gen International is the largest, most respected power generation event in the world. The 2014 event took place December 8-11, 2014 in Orlando, Florida and showcased over 1,400 exhibitors, 22,000 power professionals from over 90 countries, and more than 200 of the industry’s top speakers. RF System Lab’s Senior Sales Consultant, Casey O’Tool and Sales Consultant, Chad Parker, were fortunate to be one of the 1,400 exhibitions presented at the event.

Casey and Chad were onsite to provide Power Generation Maintenance professionals the opportunity to test out the ergonomic VJ-Advance video borescope. Professionals were able to see first-hand how the video borescope’s numerous features, such as joystick-controlled 360 degree articulation and on board camera and video capture, were perfect to assist with preventative and corrective maintenance efforts – both of which are crucial in any power generation facility.

The RF System Lab representatives also had a chance to connect with current customers such as Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, SiemensNRG Energy, and Harrison Electropolishing.

This was RF System Lab’s third year attending Power-Gen International, and they are already looking forward to attending the 2015 show.  If you were unable to connect with one of our sales consultants at this tradeshow, check RF System Lab’s 2015 tradeshow schedule to find out where you can test out the VJ-Advance video borescope in the future.

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.

RF System Lab would like to welcome a variety of new clients from the month of August.  The newest purchasers of the VJ-ADV include companies from multiple industries, including Food Processing, Casting, Integrated Technology, and Power Generation.

General Mills

General Mills

Joining our newest customers in the Food Processing industry is one of the world’s largest food companies, General Mills.  The well-known brand required a high-quality borescope to complete internal inspections of pipes that guide ammonia around their factory and ensure there was no leakage.  To make sure that inspections with the VJ-ADV could be performed efficiently, General Mills installed inspection points in the pipes for easy entrance.  With a brand recognizable in almost every household, General Mills needed to make sure to invest in a borescope that could help them complete inspections with confidence.

Another new VJ-Advance video borescope user is Skilled Manufacturing, a Traverse City, Michigan based company that specialized in engineering design and manufacturing quality.  Skilled Manufacturing had been utilizing a competitor’s video borescope, but found the repairs to be costly and frequent.  Thanks to our low-cost repair service, which includes a free loaner VJ-ADV to use while your borescope is being fixed, Skilled Manufacturing was able to save time and money completing casting inspections.  When you are a manufacturer of oil pans for top automotive companies, you cannot afford any downtime.

We also acquired an Integrated Technology customer this past August.  Plexus Corp is known for providing electronic engineering and

Florida Light & Power

Florida Power & Light

manufacturing services around the globe.  They recently purchased a 3.9mm VJ-ADV to internally inspect electro-machinery and circuit boards.  The slim 3.9mm VJ-ADV is the perfect fit for small-space inspections, especially with joy-stick controlled four-way articulation functionality.  When inspecting hard-to-reach places, a borescope with hi-res image quality and the flexibility to effortlessly navigate around corners is a must, which is why Plexus Corp selected the VJ-ADV for their inspections.

In addition, we are proud to have Florida Power & Light, an investor-owned utility company providing electric power throughout Florida, as a new customer in the Power Generation industry.  Florida Power & Light required a video borescope as soon as possible when an outage occurred.  RF System Lab has VJ-ADV borescopes in stock to provide next day, if needed.  Therefore, when a power generation company, like Florida Power & Light, must complete immediate corrective maintenance, RF System Lab is able to fulfill that need and quickly ship out the proper borescope for the job.

We at RF System Lab would like to extend a thank you to these new clients, as well as all additional clients not listed here.  If you would like to demo the VJ-Advance video borescope, you can sign up for a no-cost, no-obligation demo program.  For more information on RF System Lab, please visit our website or call 855-787-6966 to speak with one of our borescope experts about your specific internal inspection needs.
