Karl Storz fiberscopes capture bright, clear images from deep inside turbines, pipes,machinery and other hard to view areas. The flexible probe can be snaked around corners and around obstacles. High resolution images allow you to see magnified views of the inspection area without graininess or loss of sharpness.
This allows inspectors to scrutinize tiny details and detect small defects.
Karl Storz Fiberscopes offer high resolution images by utilizing a specialized packing technology of super-thin coherently aligned fibers that allows the inclusion of more fibers than other flexible scopes of equal diameter.
Karl Storz standard fiberscopes are designed with four layers of protection: two stainless steel coil layers help prevent damage from downward penetrating forces; a vinyl/PVC layer that allows the scope to be used in fluids; and an external tungsten or stainless steel outer layer that resists wear from repeated insertions. The Flexoscope’s small bending radius allows it to be easily inserted with less chance of damage or breakage.
The Flexoscope body has an angular design to assist in ease of use and articulation. 4-way scope articulation allows for the direction of the distal end of the scope to be manipulated to view specific areas. A wide articulation range reduces inspection time and decreases costly repair.
Working lengths and diameters
Standard Flexoscope models range in diameter from .5mm (0.02″) to 12mm (.470″). Working lengths up to 30′. All are durably designed for heavy-duty use in industrial environments.
