Laser Pipe Profiling


Brand Logo: Rausch USA

Application Range from 8″ up to 48″ Pipe Diameter

The KS 135 Scan has revolutionized the pipe profiling process using the “spinning laser” profiling technology. It is a 3 in 1 system, a single module upgrade to the L 135 tractor / crawler platform. Two laser diodes are integrated on either side of the conventional CCTV camera lens to perform three functions: Conventional CCTV video pipe inspection, Laser profiling (precise measurement of diameter, deflection and deformation of pipe), and crack & joint measurement.


  • Integrated into camera module
  • Mounts onto the L 135 tractor platform
  • Direct & highly accurate measurements
  • Instant & final reports on site with POSM Pro software
  • No third party analysis
  • No field calibration necessary
  • Instant system verification
  • Quick & easy setup
  • ASTM Standard F3095-14*

Additional Details

How It Works


The Rausch USA Laser Profiler features two laser diodes that are integrated into the KS 135 Scan camera head. When these laser diodes project laser dots onto the inner pipe wall, the camera head rotates to measure the diameter and all changes thereof via triangulation calculations. This method is called the “spinning laser” laser pipe profiling technology. Working in conjunction with the POSM software, the comprehensive scan generates easy to use reports to profile the pipe.

Detailed Operation


On the way into the pipe, the system is used to perform conventional CCTV video inspection, as well as measuring all joint widths. In addition, individual laser measurements can be taken at any time to determine the actual pipe diameter and deflection, called a single point scan. These diameter and deflection measurements then become a part of the inspection report.

On the way out of the pipe, the system performs a “spinning laser” scan of the entire pipe length. The camera head swivels perpendicular to the pipe wall and rotates at a defined speed. Via triangulation the Scan software continuously calculates the precise pipe diameter and all deflections and deformations in the pipe profile. Once the run is completed, the software instantly generates graphs in 2- and 3-D. These graphs show any deflection, the average pipe diameter, and the inclination slope of the line.

The 3D viewer shows the measurement as a three-dimensional pipe with all deformations. In addition to the 3D pipe in which deformations are color-coded, depending on the thickness, a round graphic is displayed on the right-hand side, which represents a section at the currently selected point in the pipe.
Below the 3D view is a planar representation of the pipe, in which the texture is drawn out as a surface. The red bar shows the current position of the 3D view.

From Our Customers

We ordered a new Rausch mainline and lateral launch system and received it in June. Not only is this system very high quality, but it is user friendly as well. It has sped up our lateral launching considerably. You can go from televising a mainline to converting to the lateral launch setup in about two minutes. Also the maneuverability of the lateral launch lets you place the lateral head right into the mouth of the lateral before launching. We have also started using USB jetting nozzles and I have gotten nothing but positive feedback from the field.
