Borescope inspections (otherwise known as Remote Visual Inspection) use small maneuverable cameras or lenses in order to inspect internal engine components such as cylinder liners, pistons, charge air coolers, manifolds, pressure vessels or pipework.
 
Marine Power Systems use high quality Olympus Borescope Instruments to conduct  diesel engine inspections that can help identify wear levels and determine correct maintenance intervals for engines. They are equally useful as pre-purchase inspections or as part of a failure investigation.
 
The benefits of borescope inspections:
 
  • Inspection cameras use very small ports (such as sensor mounting locations) or inspection plates to gain access to equipment. 
  • The technique is quick. A basic inspection of a diesel engine can often be carried out during an overnight shut-down. Suspected defects can be checked fast leading to less downtime of the equipment.
  • Equipment does not require major tear-down. Often this means lower inspection costs and less likelihood of maintenance induced defects.
 
All inspection services include a full report with color images and technical advice/recommendations. Ships often find that these reports are invaluable when presenting inspection records to classification societies or company technical superintendents.
