Titan Tool Supply Inc has introduced its L-Series, a family of rigid industrial-grade micro fibrescopes known as fibre optic borescopes.
The new series is intended to perform accurate and reliable remote visual inspections and diagnostics in hard-to-reach, remote, or otherwise inaccessible areas without machinery and equipment disassembly or disruption. The series is provided in two unique models: the Model L-1, featuring a 1mm diameter, 42° field of view, and a 6" working range, and the Model L-2, with a 2mm diameter, 50° field of view, and a 12" working range. The focal length range is 0.118" to 0.236" (3mm to 6mm).
The durable construction of the models comprises a long, thin, and rigid stainless-steel tube body. The tube provides a lens on one end and a light source (sold separately) on the other. The tube includes an optical fibre bundle that transmits light from an external light source, illuminating the area under inspection. The fibrescope lens then transmits the image to an eyepiece or camera for remote viewing and diagnostics. The Model L-1 is offered with a 6K element imaging bundle to deliver superior optical resolution for the chosen diameter size, while the Model L-2 has a 10K version. Both models may be equipped with an optional 90° viewing tube, resulting in only a small increase in the overall tube diameter. They feature 30X eyepiece magnification for optimal resolution.
Optional accessories, sold separately, include a fibre optic illuminator with a 150W quartz Halogen lamp, a fibre optic bundle for connecting the illuminator with the borescope, a 3W LED battery-powered handle, and a video adapter.
The products are excellent for various applications, including industrial machinery and equipment and their related internal component inspections, automotive maintenance (including interior inspections of engines, cylinders, and other hard-to-reach areas of the vehicle, and the detection of leaks, cracks, or blockages), aerospace maintenance (for the inspections of aircraft engines, fuel lines, and other critical components and equipment), pipeline monitoring, and practically any further general-purpose industrial-grade remote visual inspection and diagnostic application in which an end-user seeks to identify potential defects, damage, and sources of wear and tear, and particularly in hard-to-reach, remote, narrow, or otherwise inaccessible spaces, to stop costly downtime.
