Products & Services
HUNTER – Advanced Magnetic Adhesion Inspection Crawler
Hunter is a modular remote access crawler designed for cost-effective NDT ultrasonic imaging of ferromagnetic structures such as storage tanks, pressure vessels, large diameter pipes and ship hulls without the need for rope access; thus, eliminating potential risks associated with manual inspections specifically in hazardous or difficult to access terrains.
NDT Inspection Tasks:
- Corrosion mapping.
- Thickness gauging/B-Scan.
- Weld inspection and critical defect sizing.
- Visual inspection.
VortexScanner – Advanced Vacuum Adhesion Inspection Crawler
VortexScanner is a light weight vacuum Adhesion Crawler, designed for cost-effective NDT inspection of various large non-magnetic surfaces in difficult to access and hazardous environments with ease.
It’s compact yet robust design makes it perfect for providing rapid deployment and on-site inspection, whilst increasing safety; eliminating human exposure to potentially hazardous environments by allowing for inspection from a safe and remote location.
Ease of use and deployment.
VortexScanner's weight (3 kg) makes it easy to be deployed and controlled by a single operator from any location with ease. With less than 15 minutes to attach/detach the inspection packages, VortexScanner guarantees a quick and seamless inspection.
Provides Auditable data
VortexScanner significantly improves the quality of data collected as it moves over inspection surfaces, providing auditable results with the elimination of human error. VortexScanner’s ability to continuously record NDT signals also ensures instant reporting of signals in real-time for data analysis by the operator.
Allows for frequent cost-effective inspection
Vortex Scanner provides a faster solution over manual inspection allowing increased inspection; significantly improving the probability of defect detection. VortexScanner’s unique advantage is its ability to conduct both statutory Inspection and Risk Based Inspection (RBI), guaranteeing cost savings for the asset owners.
