Scanprobe Techniques joins the Marsden March


Posted on: March 6th, 2018

This Sunday just gone saw 5,500 walkers take to the streets to support the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity with their annual Marsden March, and we are very proud that our own Adam Jones was one of them.  Swapping the Scanprobe Servicing Department for the cold streets of South London, Adam, joined by his wife and friends, completed the 5 mile course and in doing so raised a whopping £1,115.00 (so far) for the charity, contributing to the overall fundraising total of £1,038,268.00 for the charity from this year’s event – a truly amazing collective achievement.

As with a lot of the walkers on the day, this charity has a particular connection with Adam and his team, as they have been supporting the charity through the efforts of “George and the Giant Pledge”, a fundraising drive by family friends Woody and Vicki whose 4 year old son George is currently battling cancer.  Having been supported fantastically by the NHS, they have been determined to help support this service and the fight against childhood cancer, and through “George and the Giant Pledge” aim to raise an astounding £1,000,000 for the Royal Marsden Hospital.

 

Speaking to Adam after the walk it was clear that the event was more than just about those walking the course, and in fact there came a great sense of community and awareness being generated for this hugely important cause.  Pubs on the route were handing out free (non-alcoholic!) drinks to participants, there were volunteers spanning the course before, during and after the event, and not to mention the hoards of supporters and well-wishers who came out in the chilly weather, and at the end the walkers were also treated to a live band.

 

Well done Adam, Suzanne, Alan & Jenny (and of course everyone else who took part!), and if you would like to support their collective cause for George and the Giant Pledge, you can donate here – no donation is too little for such a big cause.



Maxprobe Camera System Still Evolving!


Posted on: February 1st, 2018

The Maxprobe camera system is an evolving unit that changes constantly. Initially when launched in 2015 the unit had a standard camera head compared to today’s standard. Since January of 2017 the camera head was upgraded to a 44mm self-leveller with integral sonde within the camera housing that provides traceability up to 4mtrs deep. The Sonde itself is encapsulated in the main camera body for product robustness and compact design, rather than exposed to damage in a spring behind the camera head or potted in bulky connectors.

We currently provide two frequencies – 33 kHz a UK standard and 512Hz (which has improved results in cast iron pipes). We recommend the C-scope MXL4 receiver to trace our equipment, as these provide the best results.

Currently, we are testing a Controller Area Network BUS system which will control numerous operational and inspection functions, allowing us to explore 3D pipe scanning and mapping. Scanprobe is also looking to develop software, as we realise that premium drainage companies are moving more into software technology when carrying out an inspection survey and are now demanding a level of technology never seen in the industry before.

Software companies like Wincan offer surveying package’s which can incorporate all manner of tracing and mapping information. With the introduction of 4G into the Maxprobe box, all surveys can be carried out on-site and sent direct to the client or office via Wincan web. Scanprobe pioneered the first camera inspection system to incorporate Wincan web and are enjoying fantastic reviews on this cutting edge technology. We feel we’ve only just scratched the surface of what can be achieved. We see the future of surveying, where all the pipes are laid out on a map in 3D with all the information (size, material, length) tagged next to each run giving water authorities a complete layout of their waste systems. Once the information has been gathered from around the country, a national waste grid system can be established. This is some way off, but the objective of Scanprobe Techniques is to provide the tools in which this can be achieved.

The latest project due for release is The Maxprobe Atex push rod system (zone 1) which is scheduled for release this year. This will give users the peace of mind to inspect, survey and trace pipes in hazardous areas with a fully independently certified inspection system.

We are constantly monitoring the needs of our customers and (without giving too much away), the future of our Maxprobe looks fantastic. We will be pushing the boundaries of inspection, tracing, mapping software coupled with reliability and durability over the coming years, so watch this space.

Scanprobe Spartan PartnershipScanprobe are pleased to announce a partnership with American Tool Company Spartan who are now distributing the Scanprobe manufactured Maxprobe CCTV camera range in every state of America and all terittories of Canada.

CCTV Drain Camera Sales Boosted By The Maxprobe


Posted on: April 29th, 2016

CCTV Drain Camera sales at Scanprobe continue to show strong growth in 2016, boosted by the award winning Maxprobe pipe inspection system which has made such a strong impact since it’s launch last year. The latest consignment of 19 Maxprobe drain camera systems have now been successfully delivered to a well known national hire company.

The process started in June 2015 with the question to Vernon Pain, Sales Manager at Scanprobe “so what makes your camera better than everyone else’s?” The Commercial Director must have been impressed with the response and a month later Scanprobe were presenting the Maxprobe to their purchasing team. Over the next 4 months they looked at and compared our competitors’ products to the Maxprobe whilst maintaining regular communication with us and their Senior Supply Chain Manager paid a visit to our Kenley facility to inspect each area of our business.

We are pleased to announce that the Maxprobe proved to be the best product for a plant hire company who really know their business. They wanted a CCTV drain camera that is durable, easy to use, simple to maintain and can be used in inclement weather whilst giving a great return on their investment.

A representative of the field service waste division of Thames Water stated that the Maxprobe was “by far the most intuitive and professional system on the market” and the WinCan software interface is the most “user friendly” system he has used. He also stated that he is looking forward to using the live reporting feature.

The Maxprobe is now Wincan VX ready. IP64 rated with a 9hr+ LI-On  battery, 10.4 inch day light readable screen and 60 meters of rod which will genuinely push 60 metres along with a myriad of advanced features.
