Keeping a Low Profile – Inuktun’s Latest Development Project

Keeping a Low Profile – Inuktun’s Latest Development Project

They say a picture is worth a thousand words – and traditional remote visual inspection (RVI) has proven it time and time again. But everyone in the asset integrity inspection business knows that more information is better; adding other sensors and non-destructive testing tools to a robotic crawler can mean finding a flaw that would otherwise go undetected. That’s why Inuktun’s in-house engineers are actively designing a laser pipe profiler (patent pending!) to add to our collection of OnSite Standard Product accessories. In the company of our proven manipulators, auxiliary lights, high definition camera heads and more, Inuktun’s new laser profiler will provide inspectors with accurate measurements of the inside of pipes, ducts or other similar structures.

And just recently, TESRA upgraded their capability with a new Spectrum 90™ pan-tilt-zoom camera, adding improved LED lighting and integrated laser lines. Check out some of the images captured with their camera, and see how the laser lines were employed to help provide a comprehensive report on asset integrity within mining pipelines.
