If you are a municipality, consulting engineer, or contractor, your MSI data must be represented and interpreted to be actionable. ICOM® software is the ideal tool for systems owners and operators, but RedZone continues to advance the tools you have to understand and explain the conditions within your system.
Quantitative and qualitative measures not only reveal what is missed by the naked eye but can be combined with CCTV images to provide you a complete picture of the workings within your system. We can work with you to model your data in ways that meet your problem-solving needs.
Debris reports provide information surrounding the nature of the volumes of sediment within the inspected pipelines. Underwater information is presented to map the radial variances, depth, and volume of debris along the length of the pipe, allowing decision makers to understand not only cleaning requirements of the lines, but also ascertain capacity lost.
The Profiler® has been developed to provide pipeline engineers and contractors very accurate empirical data on the ovality, capacity, and other conditions in new and existing pipelines. Profiler simply attaches to your existing CCTV Camera and the resulting images are analyzed using innovative "machine vision" software.
If you are a municipality, consulting engineer, or contractor, Profiler is a necessary tool for the analysis of the true pipe condition prior to, and after, rehabilitation. When used as a video survey tool it can provide accuracy up to 1 millimeter when measuring pipe size, deformation, erosion, encrustation, grease, flows, and lateral protrusion.
Precise measurements can be taken from a single frame captured from the pre-recorded, live video. This captured frame, with its measurement data, can then be stored as a JPEG or BMP file. Manual measurements can then be performed on the captured digital profile.
The software uses "machine vision." Software image digitization is used to find where in the recorded inspection media the laser profile exists. Each frame of the collected video is analyzed to build a digital profile of the pipeline.
The flat graph shows the pipe as if it had been cut lengthways along the base (invert) of the pipe, and then pulled apart and flattened. A user defined topographic scale is applied to highlight where the actual pipe radius is greater than the expected internal radius (shades of yellow, orange, and red) or less than the expected internal radius (three shades of blue).
The true diameter is the median diameter selected from up to 90 diameter readings and displayed as either a measurement or percentage variance from the expected internal diameter.
The ovality graph shows how oval or out-of-round a pipe's cross-section has become due to deformation.
X diameter and Y diameter are displayed as a percentage variance from the expected internal diameter.
The maximum diameter is selected from a possible 90 diameter readings and displayed as either a measurement or percentage variance from the expected internal diameter.
The capacity graph shows a percentage variance of a cross-sectional area derived from the expected internal diameter.
RedZone is focused on modeling pipe condition data. Just as we pioneer the equipment and techniques to collect your data, we advance the technology to model and present its spatial relationship.
With RedZone’s proven MSI technology, the Fort Worth Water Department has saved $2.9 million in large diameter cleaning cost to date. It is estimated that the ICAP (Interceptor Condition Assessment Program) methodology of “inspect-to-clean” will result in a savings of $15.2 million in cleaning costs over the six year program.

The data that would have taken us 15 years to gather by conventional televising methods, now took only 15 months
