NEPTUNE – Advanced Magnetic Adhesion Marinised Crawler
Neptune is a rugged advanced magnetic crawler deigned for cost-effective A, B, C and Sector scan imaging on under water ferro-magnetic structures such as pressure vessels, and offshore installations (ship hulls, off-shore platform legs / jackets etc) without the need for costly divers or under water ROVs.
It’s modular design and versatility allows it to be quickly configured to client’s requirements, allowing rapid inspection capability from a safe and remote location.
Ease of use and deployment.
Neptune’s intuitive user interface allows it to be deployed and controlled by a single operator with ease. It comes with visual inspection as standard package and NDT purpose suited additional options (Phase Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT) Weld Inspection / Corrosion Mapping and Alternating Current Field Measurement (ACFM).
Provides Credible data.
Neptune significantly improves the quality of data collected as it moves over inspection surfaces, instantly providing auditable results with the elimination of human error. Neptune’s ability to continuously record NDT signals also ensures instant monitoring of signals in real-time by the operator.
Allows for frequent cost-effective inspection.
Neptune’s unique advantage is its ability to conduct both statutory inspection and Risk Based Inspection (RBI), guaranteeing cost savings for the asset owners. A low overall cost of inspection provides for cost-effective asset management, with the elimination of the use of divers or underwater ROV’s.
Inspects in both horizontal and vertical orientations.
Modular structure allowing customisation and flexibility to fit end-user requirements.
Configured to monitor the robot scanner and NDT data.
Operated by a remote control with 50m umbilical cable.
