Depending on the size of equipment and conditions, fiberscope inspections are 30 minutes, and several can be scheduled at one time to minimize disruption of operation.
Before fiberscope inspections, equipment must be shut down and locked out with body plugs at the top and bottom of the pump housing and obstructive piping removed. Moreover, pump ports need to be opened and the liquid seal drained. While preparing for fiberscope inspection the required personal protective equipment must be worn.
Performing fiberscope inspections, NASH certified technicians thoroughly examine critical, internal pump components. Inspections aide in identifying problems such as cavitation damage, corrosion, erosion, scaling, contamination, unusual signs of wear as well as recognizing existing issues and determining the cause of those issues.
