Digital Pipeline Scanning utilizing the IBAK Panoramo 3D Optoscanner increases the efficiency of CCTV Pipeline Inspection by incorporating the use of two high-resolution digital cameras in the front and rear sections of the housing, with 185° wide-angle lenses, with parallel-mounted xenon flashlights capable of 360° spherical images, enabling the analysis independent of the field inspection.
The Panoramo system captures 100% of the entire pipeline interior (360) in less time than conventional video recordation with 6X the digital clarity (high definition) and is delivered with a virtual 3D reader that enables the reviewer or customer to see, in greater detail, 100% of the pipe interior from any angle (you can pan/tilt anywhere, anytime). The flat-view component of the reader enables the pipe interior to be reviewed in a plan-view layout with the ability to perform accurate measurements.
The review, coding, and assessment are performed independently of the inspection. Additionally, the data can be incorporated with GIS, enabling the results to be instantaneously available in a geographic-friendly mode. This system has a record of substantially improving internal operating efficiency by which the assessment performed and utilized. Engineering staff can immediately begin to assess the condition and develop maintenance and rehabilitation programs with better quality.
Pro-Pipe utilizes Pipelogix Software (flexi-data) for all coding, reporting and 360-viewers. 360 – High Definition Manhole Inspections are excellent for design-accurate manhole invert measuring with 3-D virtual video of the entire manhole and delivered via GIS integrated data files. The IBAK Panoramo Si enables Pro-Pipe to perform complete optical condition assessment of manholes with high efficiency.
Pro-Pipe uses MACP Certified personnel for all manhole inspections. The Si has the ability to scan a manhole within a 1-minute period, capturing 100% of the entire manhole cavity for review in a virtual 3D reader, which can be utilized in flat-view for measuring inverts, defects, etc. and can be exported as a point cloud to Autocad.
The system scans 100% of the pipeline interior in one pass at 70ft/min at more than double the speed of traditional CCTV systems since the operator does not have to stop at each observation. Traditional camera systems operate at 30ft/min.
The visual resolution is substantially improved over traditional CCTV. The video file is a free viewer that allows the end user to virtually pan and tilt anywhere inside the pipe. The flat view enables a true comprehensive view at 3,000 lines of vertical resolution and contains an accurate measuring tool. Below is a sample snapshot from PIPELOGIX utilized in the data capture and deliverable. Example reports provided in the Appendix are linked to the viewer for quick access.
Manhole inspections will be conducted with the same technology (IBAK Panoramo & PIPELOGIX software). The true-digital manhole inspection system is excellent for design-accurate manhole invert measuring with 3-D virtual video of the entire manhole and delivered via GIS integrated data files.
The Si has the ability to scan a manhole within a 1-minute period, capturing 100% of the entire manhole cavity for review in a virtual 3D reader, which can be utilized in flat-view for measuring inverts, defects, etc. and can be exported as a point cloud to Autocad.
The data is incorporated into GIS the same as the mainline inspection along with NASSCO MACP Level-2 condition reports by MACP certified personnel.
