Rausch USA

For over 30 years, Rausch has been a leading manufacturer of innovative and top-quality Pipe Inspection Equipment with satisfied customers all over the world. Our company’s roots lie in Germany, where we began designing what was then called the “sewer eye.” Over the years, we’ve developed our products and expanded our business throughout the world, finally opening Rausch Electronics USA here in America.

Rausch Electronics USA began as a US corporation in March of 2004. Our high-tech products have rapidly gained the attention and have earned the approval of the American water and waste water industry. According to our customers, our modular lateral launch system and the laser pipe profiler are setting the standard in the market. In 2012, we moved our Service Center to a new building to accomodate increasing demand, and in 2014 we again expanded, this time into the second half of our warehouse building.

Mainline Inspection System

Mainline Pipe Inspection Camera & Crawler

Application range 5.5″ to 60″ pipe diameter

The Rausch pipe inspection CCTV camera system consists of the steerable four-wheel drive L 135 Tractor with an electrical lift and the pan & tilt KS 135 camera. The rugged system is built to inspect sewer, water and storm drain pipes from 5.5″ up to 60″ pipe diameter.

Components of Rausch Mainline System:

Mainline Pipe Inspection Camera ◾Mainline Camera

◾Steerable Tractor L 135

◾System Control Unit ECO STAR 400

◾Elka 600 cable reel with up to 1700′ of cable and swivel crane arm

◾Box truck, van, or trailer installation unit

Our easy-to-mount special attachment enables you to inspect even various egg-shaped pipe profile sizes.

This same system can be expanded to perform other tasks as well. We offer individual modules for Laser Profiling, Joint Pressure Testing, Lateral Launch and QuickLock Point Repair. Easy and quick to add-on, basically just “plug-and-play” upgrades to the same system.

Lateral Launch and Laser Crack Measurement

Lateral Launching – Pipe Inspection

Application range 6″ to 48″ pipe diameter

The Rausch Lateral Launch System, the M 135, launches a small pan & tilt camera, the KS 60 CL, into laterals from the mainline. It is a module for the L 135 tractor / crawler. Can be sold either as a standalone lateral launch system or as a module upgrade to a mainline TV Inspection, QuickLock Point Repair or Laser Profiling System. Application range from 6″ to 48″ mainline pipe diameter.

Cross Bore Safety

We now offer the SAT 40 self-leveling lateral camera for laterals as small as 2″.

Main Features of the Lateral Launch System

Lateral Launch mobile aim ◾Application range: 6″ to 48″ pipe diameters

◾Up to 160 ft of lateral push distance.

◾Up to 550 ft of mainline cable.

◾Automatically synchronized cable reels.

◾Electronic distance counter.

◾Quick-Connect to the tractor for extremely easy and quick set up. (Plug & Play)

◾Connects to electric lift of the L 135 tractor.

◾ZKM 135 auxiliary camera for direct observation of launch.

◾High-power LED’s in the PM135 for accurate positioning and camera insertion.

◾PM 135 can position the lateral camera to launch into angles greater than 90°.

◾SKM 135 launch module pushes the camera into the lateral, and can launch against the flow.

The M 135 is a scalable lateral launch system. The system consists of the L 135 tractor, a push module (SKM), a positioning module (PM), an auxiliary camera (ZKM) and the lateral pan & tilt camera (KS 60 CL).

For the inspection of laterals from large mainlines, simply attach large tires onto the tractor and the extension attachment onto the steering module. A detachable steering pin can be mounted on the lateral camera for aiding entering into the lateral, or to be used to negotiate branched laterals.

KS 60 CL Pan & Tilt Lateral Camera

The Lateral KS 60 CL camera is designed to work in many configurations. Its primary use is as the advanced pan & tilt lateral camera for the lateral launch system. But it can also be mounted onto our miniature tractor, the L100 Cross, to inspect mainlines as small as 4″ pipe diameter.

◾As small as 4″ lateral

◾Electrical auto-upright picture

◾Infinite 360° rotation

◾300° pan motion

◾Detachable steering pin to negotiate branched laterals

◾Integrated sonde transmitter (33KHz or 512Hz)

◾Nitrogen pressurized with sensor-leak detection

◾6 high-power LED’s for superior illumination

◾Diameter: 2.44″, Length: 5.07″, Weight: 1.43 lbs.

◾Connects to up to 160 ft. lateral push cable
