Underwater Bore Scope Inspections
Underwater Bore Scope Inspections
Borescopes are used underwater for visual inspection work where the target area is inaccessible by other means by diver , or where accessibility may require destructive, time consuming and/or expensive dismounting activities underwater or inside the vessel.
Similar devices to as endoscopes, Borescopes are mostly used in underwater nondestructive testing techniques for recognizing defects or imperfections or defects on Ship structures.
At FN Diving Bore scopes and special designed endoscopes are used for the inspection of overboards Sea chests and also Scrubber OB Pipes.
Bore scopes can be deployed from underwater or at the dry end of the system by our underwater inspection technician teams in order to assist with underwater inspection or repair operations in Port or at Sea.

Underwater NDT Inspection
- MPI/Magnetic Particle Inspections
- Eddy Current Inspections
- Ultrasonic Inspections/Thickness measurements
- FN Diving Underwater NDT instruments are calibration checked prior to each use to ensures accurate measuring information
Eddy current is good for detecting surface-breaking defects. Eddy current can detect these defects through fairly thick coatings (up to 2 mm), underwater several scans of an individual weld must be performed to ensure a defect is not missed. Eddy current is an operator-dependent technique.
