Didn’t Think You Could Afford a Sewer Inspection Van? - You Can Now

Posted: Tuesday 28th July 2009

Recognising that not all companies need the sophistication of its

satellite-enhanced, custom-built inspection vans with mainline sewer

inspection capabilities, Pearpoint has now launched a new series of

smaller vehicles containing the recently introduced P350 flexitrax™

portable crawler system. Ideal for smaller to medium sized companies,

these new vans incorporate the practical and ergonomic features of the

larger vans but for a fraction of the price. Up to now, the systems

integrators at Pearpoint have fully-equipped either Mercedes Vito or

VW Transporters with this new technology.

“We are in continual discussion with our customers about ways to

improve and provide them with products and services that meet their

exact requirements.” explains Douglas Kemp, Product Support Manager at

Pearpoint. “It was becoming increasingly clear that there was a need

for a van that would give customers all the tools they need to carry

out inspections of various pipes and manage reports on-site. As well

as incorporating the new P350 flexitrax™, the vans have been designed

to include adequate storage for the equipment, as well as a working

area for completing on-site reports.

It’s also the versatility of the P350 flexitrax™ that makes it ideal

for inclusion in these new inspection vans. The system is engineered

to operate in almost any environment. The command module and drum have

a weatherproof rating of up to IP68. The tough, yet lightweight

controller provides a durable buffer between the elements and survey


Currently the vans are being built to include a self-contained powered

drum with 250m of cable and a manual drum system with 150m of cable.

This means that the position of the manhole is not critical as

inspection can take place from the back of the van or using the

portable system. However, the greatest advantage of the P350

flexitrax™ is that users can specify which parts of this modular

system they need. Not only can they choose their cable system, but

there is a wide range of cameras, crawlers and accessories that

enables subsite inspection of pipes from 4” to 24”.
