The next QUILL, Quarterly Inuktun Lunch and Learn, will be here before you know it – and you’re not going to want to miss this one!
Taking place on Thursday, November 8th, at InCommand Robotics’ Office in Pasadena, Texas, this QUILL session welcomes keynote speaker Nicoli Aguinaga of The Dow Chemical Company to share Dow’s successes in reducing confined space entries (CSEs) and working at heights with the use of the All-Inspection Robotic Toolkit.
The All-what? Responding to the petrochemical sector’s request for an all-inclusive solution for structural integrity assessment across the varying environments found in the industry, Inuktun has curated an offering of the critical systems required for complete data collection. The IM3™ (Inuktun Multi-Mission Modular) technology that comprises the Confined Space Entry robotics kit are:
Spectrum 120HD™ high definition pan, tilt and zoom inspection camera
As a standalone drop camera system, on a pole, or attached to a robotic crawler, Inuktun’s Spectrum 120HD™ provides 1080p high definition video surveillance of corrosion and weld integrity for critical locations in pipelines, ducting, vessels and rail cars.
MaggHD™ high definition miniature magnetic crawler
A high definition video magnetic crawler that offers a continuous 360-degree tilt camera with 1080p video, the MaggHD™ allows for detailed inspection with 10x optical zoom, variable intensity spot and flood lights, and optional parallel laser lines for on-screen size estimate of any anomalies found.
MaggUT™ ultrasonic testing miniature magnetic crawler
The MaggUT™, also referred to at MUT, pairs ultrasonic testing with remote visual inspection in a man-portable system that allows operators to determine wall thickness, corrosion levels, and remaining useful life of assets like tanks, pressure vessels, and pipelines. No scaffolding required.
Versatrax 100™ Mark II miniature pipe inspection vehicle
The second smallest Versatrax™ crawler (after the tiny Versatrax 50™), the VT100 Mark II modular crawler offers pipe inspection in spaces as small as 100 millimetres (or 4 inches)! With configuration options that allow for an inline vehicle, parallel vehicle with magnetic option for vertical and inverted travel on ferrous surfaces, and even a cable drive option that allows shared components to act as a probe pusher or cable climber, the Versatrax 100™ Mark II is the surprisingly affordable solution for confined space entry and remote visual inspection requirements.
Crystal Cam® Delta Extreme inspection robotic crawler
While the Dow Chemical Company has made special sensor deployment tools for their own Delta Extreme, the standard vehicle can be used for remote visual inspection of a variety of drum and vessel skirts, pipes and culverts, furnaces, cooling towers and other infrastructure commonly found in the petrochemical sector.
The Confined Space Entry robotics kit prevents humans from working at heights or in confined spaces, and IM3™ technology is the key to successful prevention through routine checks in turnaround season, maintenance processes and safety plans. Detect before, look after!
