Inuktun Sighting #156: Internal Pipe Inspection with the MaggHD™

This week’s #InuktunInTheWild sighting features the hard-working MaggHD™ crawling inverted along the inside of a pipeline performing remote visual inspection for corrosion, weld integrity and any anomalies detected along the pipe interior.  With a high definition continuous tilt camera head, the OnSite MaggHD™ miniature magnetic crawler provides a detailed video report of real-time conditions for a variety of infrastructure. 

Modified Inuktun MaggHD™ Miniature Magnetic Crawler for Internal Pipe Inspection

You may recall a previous #InuktunInTheWild sighting that featured this robotic inspection vehicle employed for the inspection of J-Tubes found on an offshore oil rig.  While the MaggHD™ can typically be found performing nondestructive testing (NDT) of aboveground storage tanks, pressure vessels, offshore risers, wind turbines and more, internal pipe inspection is easily achieved with a quick adjustment to the flat chassis to allow for seamless travel on curved infrastructure, like the pictured version from The Dow Chemical Company.  Built on the IM3™ (Multi-Mission Modular) concept, the magnet blocks are as adaptable as the camera head which can be quickly removed from the vehicle and inserted on a telescopic pole for nearby but just out-of-reach areas that require a quick integrity assessment. 

Inuktun’s MaggHD™ is a powerful tool for discerning inspectors and operators who must be able to trust the quality of their data collection results to make important decisions which ultimately help transform the future. Does this sound like you?
