This year’s No Dig Live was an even bigger event for Scanprobe as we launched the TrapJumper push rod camera live on the stand!
With No Dig Live 2018 being a landmark event on the trenchless technology events calendar, this was always going to be the best place to launch our latest innovation into the pipeline inspection industry – the TrapJumper. Designed to be flexible enough to handle tight bends and traps whilst still being strong enough to push the distance, we see the TrapJumper as a great addition to any pipeline inspection engineers toolkit. The demo pipe rig was a popular feature on our stand and you could frequently hear the TrapJumper camera being pushed successfully around the cast-iron pipe across the span of the event.
One of the main functions of the TrapJumper which makes it different from other cameras in the industry is that it is fully compatible with the existing Maxprobe control box, meaning that current Maxprobe users will not need to spend extra to get another box – instead plug in and carry on. Together with the portable design, the TrapJumper is very convenient to transport, with it’s compact fold-away frame, flip-down spring-loaded handle and lightweight construction, you can carry it in one hand and carry the control box in the other.
With 40m of rod on the reel, the TrapJumper is able to push the distance, whilst being able to manoeuvre through tight trap bends when pushed from a height. Born from the need for drainage engineers to complete a pipeline survey rather than abandon it when their standard push-rod camera approached a tight bend, the TrapJumper means you can continue where you might previously have been forced to stop.
As with the rest of the Maxprobe range, the TrapJumper has the same expected functions including a self-levelling camera, camera and frame rated to IP64 and a sonde located within the camera head for both accuracy and sonde protection.
