Laval Underground pioneered the concept of well camera inspection in the 1940s. As technology advanced, the once-bulky, truck-mounted system shrank small enough to mount on a handcart and inspect water wells and boreholes as small as 2". To drive it, Laval needed a strong, lightweight, DC battery-powered motor able to deploy and retrieve up to 1300 feet of cable.
AM Equipment supplied a solution, with a motor built for strength and efficiency. AM Equipment's 226 Series DC Gear Motor provided the torque and speed necessary for Laval's stringent requirements while minimizing battery power consumption.
