Phototechnics Industry

Phototechnics IndustrySewer cameras need wheels that have a
special shape in order to run smooth on a
round wall inside of a pipe. The wheels need
to stand all kinds of corrosive fluids inside
the sewage water. They also need to have a
perfect grip on slickery algae covered ground.
SC 24 HP = Silicon carbide,
Grit size 24, hard,
foamed polyurethane

ARTIFEX tools, specially designed for each camera type give a
long live time and a perfect grip for every type of camera.
