EIC now has the ability to perform column inspections for sites with ECR model (retractable) pumps. The inspection is performed by Ebara with the use of a camera system. The camera system is fully submersible and capable of reaching depths of over 200 feet (60 meters).  Ebara and its customers have had great success using the system to locate debris, verify debris removal and perform sealing surface inspections. Ebara is dedicated to continually expanding the camera system’s capabilities.  If there are any questions regarding potential uses of the system or if you are interested in having a column inspection performed please contact support@ebaraintl.com for more information.
