In order to properly determine the structural condition of the sewer pipes, American Underground, Inc. offers unparalleled CCTV inspection technology.
Chicago CCTV Pipe Inspection
For more than three decades, the experienced professionals at American Underground Inc. have offered the best CCTV video inspections for sewer and underground pipe systems in the industry. We are proud to serve so many municipalities and commercial businesses in the greater Chicagoland area.
Our commitment to investing in state-of-the-art imaging technology provides our customers with an unmatched ability to evaluate sewer systems’ condition and status and other critical underground pipes.
We can spot defects through our highly versatile equipment and discover issues stemming from cracks or obstructions such as sludge, grease, garbage, stones, and tree roots.
CCTV Sewer Inspection Technology
The camera systems that we use have pan-and-tilt capabilities with directional lighting that can insert into pipes as small as 6” and up to 144”. Our equipment features 40:1 optical/digital zoom, autofocus, iris control, and remotely activated lighting. This latest technology ensures we capture high-quality images, no matter the conditions. Suppose a physical obstruction gets in the way of our camera system’s ability to travel through a pipe system. In that case, we can use our zoom feature to see objects further down the pipe with fantastic clarity.
Used in pipelines that measure 3” to 10” in diameter, American Underground, Inc.’s Mini-Push camera system features “self up-righting” technology. It returns incredible high-quality, detailed images of even small pipe systems. This camera can even pass through a short 90-degree turn or a single tee connection in a 4” pipe with the end connector and cable attached. Additionally, we can track the location of the camera above ground via a specially designed sonde.
American Underground, Inc. can produce clear pictures with incredible detail that gives them an unmatched ability to assess their sewer and piping systems’ condition.
How CCTV Underground Inspection Works
Our technicians at American Underground, Inc. are training to use our sophisticated camera systems and monitor live video while the camera makes its journey through underground pipes.
Our technician can view the condition present in the interior of a pipe and conduits so problems can be identified and a strategy created to resolve the issue. We can also mark the location of a break, clog, or obstruction via a wireless transmitter.
The footage from the camera is stored on a hard drive which makes retrieval of information accessible.
