Elyria, OH – RIDGID® introduces the RIDGID CrossChek™ Inspection System which allows a visual inspection of a bore slot before installing a new utility to help reduce the likelihood of cross bores. Cross bores – the unintended intersection of underground utilities – can occur when utility line installers cut underground trenches for installing utilities. They can be extremely dangerous, especially when dealing with natural gas lines. How common are they? Surveys of legacy installations in some areas have found an average of two to three cross bores per mile of sewer lines and sewer laterals inspected*. The CrossChek system, capable of inspecting bore slots 1-3/4” to 3” in diameter, includes a streamlined stainless steel camera and carrier device designed to be pulled back through freshly cut slots in a variety of underground conditions. It is designed with common thread adapters, making it compatible with most air hoses and thus easily incorporated into the boring process. It is also compatible with a variety of RIDGID inspection camera systems, including the RIDGID SeeSnake® microReel, microDrain™ and nanoReel. As the air hose is retrieved through a bore slot, the CrossChek system’s centering guide maintains the slot’s integrity and sheds loose debris. The attached camera, which faces a reflective cone, transmits a clear image that allows the user to visually inspect the inside of the bore slot.
