The speed and stamina of the P448 Explosion Proof Tractor means more inspection metreage per day. Carrying Pearpoint cameras further and faster the rugged P448 tractor is fully steerable and can operate in pipes ranging from 457 mm (18”) in diameter and up. A versatile modular inspection system , capable of inspecting pipes in potentially explosive Zone 1 environments.
A fail safe remotely controlled elevator allows for camera height adjustment as the tractor travels through the pipe. The P448 operates in rapid reverse allowing more time for inspection and less time for set up. The explosion proof tractor is capable of turning on its own axis and enables surveys of 600m in length. It also allows negotiation of pipes with radical bends. The speed of the tractor is continuously variable and employs a dual range transmission that enables the operator to choose high speed or high torque, as appropriate. Ideal for petroleum pipelines, storage tanks, etc.
