CTZoom Technologies Inc.
At CTZoom Technologies, we are dedicated and accredited team of sewer, pipe inspection specialists who have patented an innovative zoom camera technology that significantly reduce the inspection costs by 30% and completes inspections in 3-5 days faster than using the traditional CCTV system. The Portazoom camera is an global leader in sewer, water and pipe infrastructure inspections for inspection contractors, municipalities, consulting engineering firms and utility companies. Our technology provides a solid tool for collectiing and analyzing infrastructure data FAST for municipalities to develop their asset management plans
Our management team consists of industry leaders who are called upon regularly to speak on the successes of the zoom camera technology and how effective it is in supporting a municipal asset management plan.
We believe that when municipalities implement an asset management strategy from field data they significantly reduce municipal infrastructure costs and reduce disruption and downtime.
Achieve proactive sewer repair and replacement recommendations with transparent
justification to the public for allocation of sewer capital funds.
Zoom camera inspection plays a critical
role in quickly identifying areas that
need to be addressed.
Zoom camera inspection can typically inspect about 1600 meters in a shift, including manholes, compared to about 400 meters, not including manholes, using CCTV equipment.
Field crews use ESRI ARCVIEW GIS software during the survey. Information gathered can be used to build geographical mapping information with software such as ARCGIS.
This provides a valuable tool for improving sewer system management and performance and enables Municipal Administrators the opportunity to perform a high level review of their systems to facilitate long-term asset management strategies.
Sewer & Wastewater Pipe Asset Assessment & Reporting
Infratech Services utilizes a software program named CTSPec that operates in an ESRI ArcView GIS environment that enables our team to complete sewer pipe and manholes assessments and instantly generates the resulting condition assessment summary map from the field data. The software is NASSCO PACP and MACP certified and the resulting reports are according to the NASSCO standards.
