Hi, my name is Kat. I have worked in the front and back house of many restaurants, and I have also seen the game from the perspective of an owner. Although many people like to embrace complicated safety procedures, I believe you can accomplish just as much with smaller supplies and procedures. If you are ready to strip down your safety procedures and figure out easier, more effective ways to keep your staff safe, please explore this blog. It discusses everything from finding the perfect non-slip mats to buying the best oven mats or hot towels. It also looks at specific supplies you can get to reduce your liability in certain areas. Thanks for reading!
When it comes to maintaining the quality and function of your aircraft's engine, few tools play as valuable a role as an aviation borescope. These tools provide you with the ability to see into the interior of the engine in order to identify potential problems or repairs that must be made.
A flexible borescope offers the most diversity, but these tools can experience problems of their own. Here are three things that you can do to troubleshoot your aviation borescope when it starts to malfunction in the future.
1. Check the wiring for flaws.
Flexible borescopes rely on many optic fibers wrapped tightly into a wire bundle in order to relay visual information. As you snake the borescope through your aircraft's engine, it could come into contact with some hot or sharp surfaces.
These types of surfaces could cause damage to the optic wiring. If you find that your borescope is returning images with dead pixels or highly pixelated images, check to ensure that one of the optic fibers hasn't been severed by inspecting the borescope's wiring.
2. Check the light source.
The interior of your aircraft's engine features many dark chambers. In order to provide an accurate view of these chambers, your borescope must be equipped with its own light source.
The small bulb affixed to the end of the borescope could become damaged or burn out over time. If you find that there is only a black screen on the display of your borescope, then checking to ensure the light source is working properly can be a simple fix.
3. Check your power source.
Inspecting an aircraft's engine for damage requires that you are able to move about freely. A borescope that must be plugged into the wall can limit your mobility, so investing in a portable borescope is advised.
Portable borescopes rely on a battery to supply the power needed for them to produce clear and consistent images. If you find that your borescope is cutting in and out, then a battery that is failing or has a low charge could be to blame. Check the power source, and replace or charge the battery to clear up any power-related problems with your borescope's display.
Having the ability to rely on a flexible borescope is essential when it comes to checking your aircraft's engine for damage. Be sure that you keep your borescope in good condition and that you are prepared to troubleshoot any problems that might limit your ability to see the interior of your aircraft's engine.Share
