Inuktun Sighting #135: On Track and Trucking On

Inuktun was recently invited by a large oil tanker transportation group to present a solution for eliminating the need to send a human worker into confined spaces for visual inspection of its truck fleet. The InCommand team, along with personnel from Bureau Veritas and DronePro, appeared for an onsite product demonstration to offer a robotic solution to Confined Space Entry (CSE) inspections.

Inuktun’s Spectrum Tank Inspection Kit, the STIK™, performed a remote visual inspection (RVI) of the oil tanker trucks which were cleaned prior to the examination. The video feedback allowed the owners to see firsthand whether there was leftover material or residue and took the opportunity to search for weld deformities. There was a true appreciation for the PTZ (pan, tilt, zoom) capability of the Spectrum 120HD™ high definition inspection camera. With a full 1080p resolution and high-quality 30X optical zoom in a robust package, the Spectrum 120HD™ provides crystal clear video in air or submerged. The group also loved the ease of use of the Xbox controller, an option that offers familiar controls and reduces the learning time for new operators. According to InCommand’s sales representative, Jeff Abt, “It was really rewarding being able to demonstrate the perfect solution that keeps workers, and the environment, safe!”

When data collection results determine the safe working condition of equipment like industrial trucks carrying oil, gas, or hazardous chemicals, your equipment needs to provide repeatable, actionable, meaningful and preventative NDT inspection results. Our proven IM3™ (Inuktun Multi-Mission Modular) technology gives inspectors exactly the information they require when searching for evidence of cracks and worn areas, delamination, chemical degradation, liquid or product in the annulus of double walled tanks, or containment areas. Operators can monitor real-time conditions of things like drain valves and opening seals, liquid level gauge visibility, obstructions or restrictions to vents that prevent normal function, and any malfunctions of pumps, gauges or other ancillary equipment.
