Metro Rod continue to invest in the latest drainage surveying technology with the purchase of a Mini-Cam Proteus Crawler system. This unit can survey pipe diameters ranging from 150mm through to 1000mm, also allowing for Pan & Rotate Zoom capabilities and in-built multi frequency sonde transmitter – ideal for above ground locating of defects.

Some utilities and industrial clients require a higher standard of safety, in relation to potentially explosive gases. Our Proteus camera is fully ATEX compliant for use in potentially hazardous zone 2 environments. This equipment is stored in our fully customised vehicle, equipped with a separate viewing/reporting studio along with a working area which holds all of the necessary equipment for us to carry out our work. The in-built inverter battery power enables silent system use in sensitive situations – such as night-time and weekend work.

Ben Witcomb, company director comments “Our continued investment in the best available drainage surveying equipment signifies our commitment to providing the best possible service for our clients. We have invested in both the Proteus and iTouch surveying systems, allowing for almost instant reporting capabilities. We can now share data with our clients through a cloud based online portal, speeding up the repair process to improve service delivery”
