|At CEMEX’s Wickwar Quarry in Gloucestershire, there is now an enhanced ability to carry out preventative maintenance inspections as well as plant problem-solving activities.
A pole-mounted camera system enables visual appraisal of places that are difficult or impossible to inspect by direct human vision. The system comprises a CCTV camera affixed to the end of a lightweight pole, which also carries a halogen light. The camera is connected to a portable colour monitor.
Examples of uses are for inspections of:
• hot screen meshes in coating plant
• mixer wear parts
• valve integrity of bag filters
• chutes, pipes and ducting
• inside other confined spaces, or at height.
