Last month, we had the opportunity to participate in a webinar hosted by ASME on inspection robots for pipeline leaks. Wes Kirkland, Director of US Field Sales Operations for Eddyfi Technologies, reported that the audience was very interactive, and time ran out before all the great questions submitted could be answered. We look forward to addressing these questions on our blog (subscribe now to make sure you don’t miss it) and invite you to get in touch with our friendly and knowledgeable staff for more information. If you’re interested in viewing a recording of this webinar, send a request here.
One of the questions asked was, “What are the limitations of the robots in terms of temperature extremes?”
While it is dependent on the type of equipment, Inuktun’s robotic crawler and inspection camera systems are typically capable of operation in temperatures up to 40 or 50 degrees Celsius, and we have created OnSpec Custom Solutions that can operate in much higher temperatures by employing active cooling techniques. Check out the example of an air-cooled Spectrum 120HD™ high definition pan, tilt, and zoom inspection camera here. On the other hand, our IM3™ (Multi-Mission Modular) technology successfully performs remote visual inspection and nondestructive testing operations in extremely cold environments, like this #InuktunInTheWild sighting of a Versatrax 150™ inspecting a siphon outlet here. Give us the best definition of your problem and we’ll provide you with the best solution.
With the acquisition of Inuktun by Eddyfi Technologies, a world leader in advanced nondestructive testing technologies, the options for additional data collection requirements are seemingly endless.
