TANK SLUDGE PROFILING & MAPPING

*Brief of the system

  • The profiler is ATEX-certified which makes it suitable for all types of product.
  • The profiler is inserted into the product through the roof support entry-point or manhole entry without the need for the tank to be emptied.
  • Only a small team of our experts is required, minimizing the number of people on the tank roof.
  • By using our advanced software the survey usually takes only just a day, which makes it fast and cost-efficient.

Flow of the system and benefit by tank sludge profiling & mapping

The final report includes a 3-D colored contour map of the sludge distribution present in the tank and the sludge volume in cubic meters or cubic feet

BENEFITS OF PROFILING

  • It quantities sludge volume prior to cleaning.
  • It creates an accurate 3D sludge map to ensure safe roof landing and manhole removal.
  • It reduces unforeseen delays during maintenance.
  • It offers verification of the desludging operation’s success.
  • It allows for better asset management over the plant’s lifetime.
  • It enables accurate sludge accumulation monitoring

TANK INSPECTION

Brief of the Online Robotic Tank Inspection system

  • Online Robotic Tank Inspection or On-line Tank Inspection System (OTIS) executes tank bottom inspections.
  • The tank bottom inspection equipment uses UT sensors to detect any variation in thickness of the bottom plate while the tank remains in service.
  • High quality robotic equipment ensures constant, controlled and proven conditions for tank bottom inspections.
  • Robotic equipment is safer than manual inspection, and is unaffected by working conditions. Its advanced, computer-based ultrasonic technique makes data collection more accurate.

Advantages of robots for in-service tank inspection

Tank Inspection

Tank robotic system is efficient and cost-effective while it;

  • Eliminates the high cost of tank downtime
  • Does away with the need for temporary storage
  • Saves you the cost of cleaning
  • Minimizes waste disposal costs
  • Cuts inspection time to days instead of weeks
  • Avoids disruptions in plant operations, keeping revenue constant
  • Reduces environmental risks such spills and VOC release
  • Improves safety by eliminating confined space entry and personnel exposure to hazardous chemicals
