These are the some of the major advantages of the borewell scaning system.
Principle of operation :- The visual signals are converted into display signals on the monitor in the borewell containing high hydrostatics pressure of water. The hydrostatic pressure of borewell is more compared to open wells. The pressure in the borewells increases with respect to depth of the borewell. The scaner which is used to scan the borewell is designed to withstand hydrostatic pressure of water. As depth increases pressure also increases on scanner body. The 12 voltas bulb or lamp is used along with scaner to illuminate borehole surface; by allowing scanner and lamp together into theborewell
through the cable graduated with foot marks and a cable is supported by a PVC string to avoid elongation of cable. Not-in the details of borewell on the monitor the image can be recorded to VHS cassata or to pc further reference.
