New Proteus crawler added to rental fleet

New Proteus crawler added to rental fleet
04/02/2014

Ashtead Technology, the instrumentation specialist, has added the new Mini-Cam Proteus Crawler Camera Inspection System to its fleet of rental inspection equipment. The product features a variety of key features such as a built-in lowering device, a pan/rotate camera and a back-eye with auxiliary light, as well as a built-in digital control unit for capturing colour mpeg video and jpeg still images. Importantly, this final feature means that it is not necessary to hire an additional recording device.

In order to expand the range of pipes that the Proteus can inspect (150 to 600mm), this 6-wheel drive unit is supplied with three different sized wheels, and a novel wheel-lock mechanism enables quick and simple wheel changes. A portable cable reel is supplied as standard with a minimum of 120m cable, which can be extended to 200m or longer by prior arrangement. The system includes a cable layering mechanism, a meterage wheel, a manual winding arm and a friction brake.

With twin joysticks, intuitive hot keys and crawler cruise control, the instrument is simple to operate, and users are provided with continuous control and status information. This includes activity, speed, pressure, inclination and temperature.

Designed to meet the needs of professional pipeline inspection companies to provide comprehensive reports on pipe condition, the Proteus is supplied with a pan/rotate camera, featuring full 360° rotation and incorporating powerful LED lights.

“The addition of the Proteus to our crawler range is a good example of Ashtead Technology’s commitment to invest in state-of-the-art rental equipment,” says the company’s Key Account Manager Jay Neermul. “Data capture and a multi-frequency sonde transmitter are both built in as standard, which is more convenient and reduces rental costs for our customers.”
