The Best Solution for Contractor

Inspection CCTV cameras become very popular for inspection of chimney surfaces. They are convenient for small diameter chimney, old stone flues in unknown condition to get safety certificates, etc. Chimney and fireplace systems need video inspections as much as other ducts or canals in the buildings.  

A new and cost effective solution for inspection of ducts, chimneys and fireplaces is offered. Contractors, who seek the best solution for their needs, can choose Viper push camera with PoleCat. Viper push camera has a semi-rigid probe with length 20, 35 or 40 meters, powerful light source and sensitive video camera with sapphire glass lens. The PoleCat allows using a long pole to support the camera. And it is a very important feature: generally chimney inspection cameras have a soft cable to use only from the roof level downwards. However Viper push camera with the PoleCat can be used from both levels: roof and ground, upwards. Besides it is possible to fix the camera at various angles for better view.

Viper pushcamera with PoleCat is the best solution due to its easy design and very reasonable price, considerably cheaper than common chimney inspection camera in the market. Besides this set provides versatile usage for every, even complicated construction of air duct, chimney or fireplace.

Borescope Inspection of Internals (Video)

See the sample of video and images taken by CCD Sony camera attached to rigid borescope.
EXview HAD CCD is a trademark of Sony Corporation. EXview HAD CCD is a CCD Camera sensor, which drastically improves the light efficiency by including near infrared light region as a basic structure of HAD (Hole-Accumulation Diode) sensor.


The set of a rigid borescope and high-resolution SONY CCD camera can be largely used in many areas including car service, airplane turbines and checking welding seams. Inspection becomes very efficient due to high resolution of image and wide depth of view from 5 mm to infinity.
Rigid borescopes are computer-designed and comply with standards.
The body of the borescope, light post and insertion tube are made of stainless steel. All exterior elements are well adjusted and fluid resistant. The coated rod lenses, in the optical system, provide brilliant image quality with great contrast and brightness. The construction of the optical system guarantees a distortion-free image of the inspection area.
