Product Overview

Application Range from 6″ up to 48″ Pipe Diameter

The Rausch USA 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.

We now offer the SAT 42 self-leveling lateral camera for laterals as small as 2″.

Main Features

  • Application range: 6″ to 48″ pipe diameters
  • Up to 150 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.
