Where are the rock strata boundaries? Where is this borehole making water? Why isn’t my explosives column rising? I wish I could see into this borehole!
The StrataCam™ Mini Borehole Camera is used to clearly view and accurately record the physical location of geological strata, weak/strong boundaries, ore/waste boundaries, coal seams, top of coal, free-surface of water or ingress points, in-situ fractures, cavities, and irregularities. This information is quite valuable to a blaster who needs to modify the loading pattern.
Perform high resolution video surveys of dry or water filled boreholes with diameters as small as 42.2 mm (1.66 in.) and to a maximum depth of 107 m (350 ft.). The StrataCam™ Mini Borehole Camera components are watertight to external pressures of 5.17 MPa (750 psi).
When video surveying a borehole, the Operator can easily crank the cable reel to raise or lower the camera’s position in the borehole and adjust the speed while simultaneously viewing the live colour video feed on the LCD monitor. The monitor continuously displays the total depth of the camera digitally and can be shielded from sunlight using the monitor's outdoor viewing hood.
The small and compactness of the StrataCam™ Mini Borehole Camera allows the ability of the Operator to move and maneuver the unit to any location on the site. The portable tripod can be setup over a variety of size of holes for inspection. This unit is designed to have the ability to inspect the smallest holes while having the optional equipment for the viewing of the largest holes.
