Inspection of the combustion chamber in a diesel locomotive
For the inspection of diesel locomotives, regular inspection of the combustion chamber and documentation are required. Inadequate quality inspection or failures such as faulty valve seats or defective running surfaces can cause serious malfunctions of the engine and thus locomotive failures. The inspection is often performed in confined spaces and without direct power connection. For this reason, Eltrotec video endoscopes are used. These video endoscopes are lightweight, mobile and work independently of the mains. The robust probes are available in different lengths and designs to inspect even confined spaces. Images and movies are stored on an SD memory card.
