Oil & Gas
Using small, mobile automated and autonomous inspection systems can bring about considerable improvements in terms of assessing the condition of key components. Automatic measurement with an inspection robot increases the precision of measurement and the resulting data. This paves the way for major improvements in terms of lifetime assessment and trending. Based on this, outages can be optimized and shortened.
Our Solutions for the Oil & Gas market
A particular advantage of small and agile inspection robots is that they also allow areas that would not otherwise be directly accessible to be reached without opening or disassembly the structure. Modern inspection technologies (UT and phase array) can be used in place of x-ray applications to allow inspection work to be conducted in parallel.
The Inspection Robotics systems appropriate for the oil and gas and basic chemicals industries are industry-tested, and have proven their worth in the tough environment of the power plant service business.
Upstream, midstream, downstream
The following are some of the components that can be efficiently assessed using inspection technology:
- Pipes (inside and outside)
- Long tubes and heat exchangers (inside)
- Tanks (inspection of walls and floors from the inside)
- Furnaces and boilers
- Flare systems
- Columns (corrosion and cracks from the inside and outside)
- Reactors (weld inspection from the inside)
