ASSET Platform

The ASSET platform is designed for fast and reliable inspection of large surfaces (tank walls & floors, large plates &structures) with path planning capability. Its on-board equipment allows remote operation for Visual (VT), Eddy current (ET) and Ultrasonic (UT) inspection.

fully integrated

With its onboard NDT equipment - both 16-ch Ultrasonic & Eddy Current - this is a fully integrated system. No external system is required to perform the full scope of inspection.

floor & wall inspection

With its capability to inspect tank floors and tank walls the ASSET is unique in the market. The special track drive design allows passing wells and accurate navigation, even on coated surfaces.

advanced navigation software

For tank floor inspection the platform is equipped with a rotating laser range finder. The system can be setup to navigate according to predefined scan paths, following a structure or even freely. 

ASSET platform

Inspection of large surfaces such as storage tanks are one of the high priority topics for Oil&Gas industry. Most of the industry key players are defining stronger requirements for inspection of their tanks.

Designed to be used in several fields the ASSET platform is an advanced fully integrated robot for inspection of large surface structures. Its track-drive design allows multi directional move on surfaces even when curved (such as Oil storage tanks). Delivered with a unique software package that allows to control the scanner as well as monitor the inspection data while collecting. ASSET is equipped with on-board NDT equipment to perform inspections on many magnetic structures, even when painted or coated.

How it works

Using Inspection Robotics trackdrive modules, ASSET is perfect for climbing large structures without having to remove paint or coatings. With its unique laser navigation system and its on-board electronic, ASSET is perfect for fast and reliable tank inspection.

Without cable length restriction and high speed of displacement on large surfaces, even when coated, ASSET will increase productivity without compromising quality.

The crawler

The core element of the inspection system is a crawler with two independent, 7 wheels, track-drive units. Each wheel is suspended to allow for safe and efficient weld crossing up to 10mm high or passing over surface ballooning at welds. Its low profile allows inspection under obstacles such as piping.

The crawler carries its own electronic including motor controllers, NDT equipment and navigation sensors. Safe mode is included preventing the system from slipping and falling from vertical surfaces.

Applications

The ASSET platform can be used for all UT & ET inspections on large ferromagnetic steel structures.

  • tank wall
  • tank floor
  • steel plates
  • ship hull
