WEFTEC 2016 Logo - Rausch USA

Rausch at WEFTEC 2016

Rausch USA is attending the 2016 WEFTEC (Water Environment Federation Technical Exhibit and Conference) in New Orleans, Louisiana on September 26th to 28th, 2016. The conference takes place in the New Orleans Morial Convention Center, and formally begins on Saturday the 24th, and we will have staff on site all weekend. However, the exhibit hall hours do not begin until Monday. It has been a while since Rausch has made a splash at the largest national water environment show, so this year we are bringing our full equipment lineup to booth #7347.

Equipment on display will include a brand new fully-equipped Rausch demo system installed in our signature Mercedes Sprinter layout. Our new MOBILE pro portable unit with the C 135 crawler and the minCam360 pan and tilt push system with the innovative steering skid RID will be featured as well.

We invite you to come to booth #7347 at WEFTEC 2016 in New Orleans in September – it is a great opportunity to experience our advanced inspection equipment and speak to our most knowledgeable representatives.


Rausch Manhole Inspection Camera

Manhole Inspection with Rausch Systems

Rausch CCTV Inspection trucks can be upgraded to perform manhole inspections – and with the right software, the inspections can adhere to NAASCO’s MACP standard. Manhole inspections require 4 pieces of Rausch equipment, 3 of which are standard on nearly every Rausch system we sell:

  1. Elka 600 cable drum
  2. KS 135 mainline camera with crack measurement
  3. ECO STAR 400 or Proline control unit
  4. Manhole Inspection Adapter Kit

The adapter kit consists of a mounting bracket for the Elka cable drum arm, an adapter to connect the KS 135 camera directly to the RAU9 mainline cable, and a telescopic pole which is secured to the bracket and connects to the KS 135 adapter. A tripod is also available to secure the pole firmly in place over the manhole.

By using the telescopic swivel arm of the Elka drum, the Manhole Inspection Unit can be centered over the manhole and then secured in place with the tripod. After securing the brake on the cable reel, release the locks on the pole’s extensions. By spooling out and rewinding the cable, the pole extends and retracts at a controlled speed, lowering and raising the pan and tilt KS 135 camera.
