Spark testing ECTFE lining in a fibreglass reinforced polyester storage tank

Mounting a hand-held A/C spark tester on our unique vacuum robot, inspection of ECTFE lining welds was done remotely for the very first time at this major producer of zeolite products. Invert Robotics is continuously looking to add NDT-tools to our robot’s repertoire. A regular customer in the chemical industry required an inspection using spark […]

Collaborative project with major Dutch oil company results in first automated UT measurements in aluminium tank

Invert Robotics’ unique suction-based crawler inspection platform was used to take ultrasonic wall thickness measurements without the need for confined space entry. A major Dutch oil company approached Invert Robotics after a demonstration organised by Sprint Robotics. They asked us to add an Olympus DL38 ultrasonic thickness probe on our suction-based crawler platform. The objective […]

Using UT to inspect coal bin wear at a coal processing facility in Australia

In a collaborative project with a major Australian inspection services provider, Invert Robotics developed a custom M-serie robotic platform to take ultra-sonic wall thickness measurements without entering the confined space of a coal distribution hopper. Coal processing facilities utilise coal bins to manage the distribution of coal around there processing plants. The coal flows into […]

Successful remote 3D scan of iron ore chute at Western Australia mine

Invert Robotics developed a bespoke crawler inspection platform to obtain 3D scan data without entering the high risk confined space area below a 250,000 tonne iron ore stockpile. After a previous collaborative inspection with Invert Robotics, this mine in Western Australia once more called on us. This time they challenged us to devise a method […]

Certifying the Pressure Reaction Vessels

Leave the internal inspection to the robots! The mandatory periodical re-certification of the pressurised reaction line requires internal visual inspection of the vessels. Invert Robotics provided the camera and the robot so the inspection company could avoid confined space entry. In Western Germany, close to the border with Holland, stands a chemical plant that manufactures […]

Combined NDT inspection

Ultrasonic measurements and visual inspection of a carbon steel tank. High corrosion levels and a crowded interior provided the challenges for the inspection of this vessel. A custom-built ramp and a versatile robot meant that Invert Robotics delivered all requested information from all areas of the slurry tank At this zeolite production plant, located on […]
