Technology

Your equipment with smooth surfaces is no challenge for our state-of-the-art climbing robots. Our robots deliver precise and 360-degree diagnostics so the detection of cracks and defects of your equipment can be done faster.

The advanced sliding suction cup technology enables our robots to stick to your non-magnetic surfaces. The robots’ excellent manoeuvrability means it can inspect your equipment from all possible angles, even hanging upside down. This gives a complete inspection of your entire equipment without missing an angle.

Technical Specifications

The robot acts as a universal platform for various non-destructive testing (NDT) payloads up to 5 kg. Some examples are Ultra Sonic Wall thickness, Eddy current and Sparks test measurements.

Crawler size:

  • Weight: 5 kg
  • Dimensions: 400W, 450L. 200D (mm)
  • Material: ABS, Aluminium, Rubber
  • Maximum cable length: 60m (standard), can be extended up to 100m

Performance:

  • Power consumption: 200W
  • Power supply: LV DC (36V)
  • Operational temperature range:0°C to 50/60°C; solutions for extended operating temperatures are available

Speed:

  • Maximum linear speed: 120 mm/sec (7.2 meter per minute)

Suction system:

  • Adhesion mechanism: Active and passive sliding suction
  • Adhesion redundancy: Four times redundancy built into the suction system.
  • Vacuum pump: The robot has an active vacuum system. In case of power loss there is a safety feature which prevents the robot from falling.

Visual inspection:

  • Camera specs: 1080p, 30fps
  • Camera streaming: Yes, in real-time
  • Camera recording: Yes
  • Integrated lighting: Yes
  • Optical Zoom: 30x
  • Reliable

    Multiple redundant adhesion systems mean the system is safe, even during power loss

  • Portable

    The system can be readily transported as air freight, minimising costs and increasing speed

  • Remote

    The system is controlled remotely from a safe location, eliminating all hazards to the operator

  • Repeatable

    Use of a robot means you get the same inspection each and every time.

Benefits of our robotic inspections

Diagnostic accuracy

We provide 360-degree diagnostics on both concave and convex surfaces. Our remote robots augment human inspection methods to identify defects as small as 1/16-mm.

Safer for your people

Robot operators are always outside the vessel during the inspection so there is no need for working at height or confined space entry.

Less maintenance downtime

Compared to traditional inspection methods, we pick up and fix defects faster and you can get assets back to work sooner. It takes us approximately eight hours to inspect a spray dryer with an 8-m diameter.

Repeatability

Data acquisition using precise location measurements means maintenance is consistent and repeatable year on year.

Real-time results

Initial results are available instantaneously – while the inspection is taking place. A full assessment report, including marked defect locations and images, is provided within 72 hours.
