In the final chapter of the ASME mini-series highlighting Inuktun’s robotic solutions for remote visual inspection (RVI) and nondestructive testing (NDT), we take a look at ‘Something to Prove’, an engineering focused article related to robotics.
“To inspect a tank…exposes workers to heights and confined spaces, two of the industry’s most common causes of accidents and death.” The article introduces robots as the potentially faster and cheaper solution since they eliminate the need for scaffolds and confined space work. And Inuktun’s got options!
For high quality video output, the MaggHD™ miniature magnetic crawler offers 1080p high definition resolution in a 360 degree continuously rotating camera head, fitted to a small footprint magnetic base platform that allows for horizontal and vertical inspection across ferrous surfaces.
When it comes to tank inspection, remaining wall thickness or metal loss is a critical factor. Inuktun’s MaggUT™ ultrasonic testing (UT) magnetic crawler employs a UT probe to collect this important information for asset owners to determine remaining useful life or maintenance scheduling. And because it crawls directly on the metal tank wall, there is no need for scaffolding!
When internal tank inspection is required, the STIK™ - Spectrum Tank Inspection Kit, is Inuktun’s turnkey solution for remote visual inspections that offer hatch mount access.
In ‘Something to Prove’, it all comes down to trusting the data output. Having been in business for nearly 30 years, our proven IM3™ technology delivers reliable, actionable, meaningful and preventative data results.
