Inuktun Sighting #96: Orbital Engineering Takes Advantage of Rentals from Convenient Location

While Orbital Engineering is a relatively new client to Inuktun, they have wasted no time in taking advantage of the Multi-Mission Modular (IM3™) rental fleet offered by Inuktun InCommand Robotics, LLC, our Texas based office. For over 45 years Orbital Engineering has provided engineering, risk mitigation and project delivery expertise to the Mining & Metals, Energy, Chemical & Manufacturing, and Infrastructure industries.

Most recently Orbital rented the Versatrax 150™ Mark II long distance pipe inspection system for a spillway examination in West Virginia just this week. Due to the nature and advanced capability of our OnDemand Specialty Systems, on-site training was provided by InCommand to ensure an effective deployment and a successful structural integrity assessment. The 900 millimetre (36 inch) diameter spillway being inspected runs distances of 1,100 metres (3,600 feet) – just a little bit too much for the standard Mark II system. But, just like all the IM3™ products, we were able to provide a quick customization and give them a little bit more cable, allowing for operation over the full length of accessible pipe and inspection of a dam structure around 400 metres (1,300 feet).

Another inspection performed by Orbital Engineering this week in Pennsylvania employed the MaggHD™ miniature magnetic crawler to evaluate a 180 metre (600 foot) length air duct system and blast furnace. With multiple entry points available, the standard system with a 100 metre (330 foot) tether cable was a perfect fit.

Over the last year, Orbital has rented the Versatrax 150™ and MicroMag™ for midstream pipe inspection, culvert evaluation and more.
