Bolt-on carriage lets crawler inspect variety of pipe sizes - TheFabricator.com

The Envirosight ROVVER X™ can inspect many pipe sizes with the addition of a bolt-on carriage that raises the crawler and expands its wheelbase and ground clearance. The carriage, which attaches in seconds, accepts all ROVVER wheels, as well as two new pneumatic wheel options.

When used in tandem with the system's remote camera lift accessory, the carriage gives the crawler an overall inspection capability of 6 to 72 in., plus the ability for centered viewing in most common pipe sizes 24 in. and larger. It elevates the crawler at least 4.4 in., or more with a pneumatic wheel upgrade. The carriage also lengthens the crawler's wheel base 75 percent, widens it 150 percent, and grants up to 7.75 in. of ground clearance.
