Pipe Inspection Technology Keeps Civil War-Era Sewer Pipe Undisturbed During Sewer Separation Project

Those of us who work in an industry with underground infrastructure know how difficult it can be to keep track of them all. While newer installations of pipe, structures and conduit often come standard nowadays with CADD drawings, detailed as-builts and GPS coordinates, items installed prior to the electronic age came with no such things.

September 25, 2014 - Customer Spotlight: PVIC

PVIC was recently in the spotlight with a very nice article by Ken Wysocky in Gas and Oil Mining Contractor Magainze.

PVIC uses RapidView's LISY lateral launch system to help customers meet their inspection goals. PVIC is a quality company and we are glad to have them as a customer. They are served by our dealer Jack Doheny Companies, Inc. in California.

Here is an excerpt from the article:

“We’re always upgrading and updating our equipment,” Mihaletos notes. “Our goal is to be the leader in our industries … and advanced, more productive equipment is key.” As an example, he points to the Jetstream hydroblasters, which are capable of generating up to 40,000 psi, a level of pressure that some companies shy away from using because of the associated risk factors.

Mihaletos also points out that to increase efficiency and productivity, the company cross-trains employees on all equipment. “We also focus sharply on maintaining equipment in order to minimize breakdowns … which goes hand in hand with developing good relationships with customers,” he says.
