Fiberscope.net Introduces their Newest Addition, “Triton” Industrial Pipe Inspection Camera to their Line of Industrial Push Cameras

Triton Industrial Pipe Inspection Push Camera

Winnipeg, MB (PRWEB) January 04, 2013 -- Fiberscope.net is proud to announce that they are now carrying one of the most rugged industrial push cameras available. Push Cameras need to be built tough to withstand the rigors of inspections in dark, dirty, damp and hard to reach places like sewer pipes. These push rods have to stand up to the wear and tear of navigating these conditions, over and over. No one wants to purchase a push camera only to have to repair it after a couple of uses, or to find that it will not reach the smaller hard to reach areas that need to be inspected.

The Triton Pipe Inspection Camera form Fiberscope.net is made with a heavy duty Kevlar braided probe. Kevlar is the same material used in bullet proof vests, and it lends its strength to the push rod. This extremely strong and durable material ensures that the probe on this NTD unit will withstand the rigors of habitual use. The probe which is available in lengths up to 200ft was designed as a solution to the ongoing problem of probes breaking or cracking as they wear out from repetitive use.

10 Ways to Act Quickly With First Aid for Frozen Pipes

10 Ways to Act Quickly With First Aid for Frozen Pipes

Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) January 05, 2013 -- “If pipes do freeze,” says Beall, “the first sign may be a faucet that refuses to yield water. But all too often, the freeze-up is announced by a flood from a break.” Water expands about 8 per cent in volume as it begins to freeze, generating pressure that splits pipes, especially where expansion is impeded by joints or bends. “Ice may form throughout a long straight section of supply line before it meets and obstruction and cracks the pipe; thus, says Beall, “the entire length of pipe that supplies a stopped faucet should be considered suspect, both for ice blockages and leaks.”
