Invert's robotic solution offers the safest and most accurate inspections in the stainless steel food and beverage inspection market.
We can inspect your storage tanks, spray dryers, cyclones, bag filters, fluid beds and other vessels for cracks and defects.
Reduce risk with remote visual inspection
Within the industry, stainless steel processing equipment degrades and corrodes through normal use. High temperatures and caustic cleaning chemicals create patterns of thermal cycling that cause defects and cracks to develop near welds inside the equipment. You don't want to leave these defects unattended, because cracks can harbour harmful bacteria, and shorten the life cycle of your asset and even cause an explosion.
Our remote visual inspection service identifies these cracks and assists you in mitigating risks that arise from them. At its core, the service you experience combines our state of the art robotic solution with the expertise of our highly skilled and certified inspectors.
The inspection robots’ manoeuvrability means it can inspect all internal surfaces of your equipment, including looking accurately into pipework and ducting. Our robots can even complete inspections hanging upside down. This provides you with a safe, fast and repeatable way of ensuring your equipment is free from defects. In doing so we help to minimise production downtime and reduce the possibility of product recalls.
To ensure you the best service possible, our inspectors are fully qualified and certified in a range of NDT methods including visual inspections (VT-2). Our proprietary inspection process ensures comprehensive and consistent service delivery every time.
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.
Compared to conventional inspection methods, we detect and repair defects faster and you can get your critical production assets back into operation as soon as possible. It takes us approximately eight hours to inspect a spray dryer with an 8-m diameter.
Safer for your people
Robot operators are always outside the vessel during the inspection so there is no need for working at height or for confined space entry permits.
Initial results are available instantaneously even while the inspection is taking place. We provide you with a full assessment report, including marked defect locations and images, is provided within 72 hours.
Precise location measurements not only allow us to provide a repeatable and consistent service, but also to track how defects progress over time.
