Mainline Reel

Used in conjunction with the lateral reel this fully automatic reel provides a distance capability of 1150í to power the crawler along the pipeline. It uses our tried and tested Kevlar reinforced inspection cable, and has all the functionality and safety features of the lateral reel. For additional smooth friction-free guiding, an optional van guide pulley is available.


Van-fit Configuration

Dual reels with installation flexibility in van arrangements (example shown below) are used to drive the LT150 crawler. The Lateral Reel gives you 1000í of mainline capability to then extend the main camera over 150í into a lateral pipe, while the mainline reel provides cable to the crawler for runs of over 1000' within the mainline pipe. Ultra-smooth operation is provided by a powerful motor and cable layering mechanism, specially designed for uninterrupted, tangle free pay-out and re-winding. Clear safety screens prevent contact with the cable whilst coiling, and for additional safety there is a rigid lid and an e-stop button.

Manageable Manoeuvrability

The LAT150 offers a multitude of options to help overcome challenging situations and give complete control of each launch. The system has flexible but easy to use options available such as, various configurations and sizes of wheels, deployment tubes and the lateral pin.

Observation Camera Extension Support

Raises the camera for a better view in pipes 8" and above.

Lateral Pin

A useful addition to the Pan-tilt and Laser Camera CAM050. simply attach the pin to assist in directional guidance within a lateral pipe. The pin helps to overcome entry to bends & junctions and guides the camera smoothly along the pipe.
