Technical installations that are subject to stringent requirements should always be kept on the best possible level of operational safety. This applies particularly to installations with their innumerable piping systems that require a high degree of reliability, comfort and safeness. Keeping individual pipeline sections in perfect condition is a crucial prerequisite for the trouble-free operation of the entire system. The pipeline systems therefore have to undergo strict and regular tests of various types which ensures that any damage to the pipes as a result of wear, corrosion, erosion and cracking etc. is detected, respectively prevented at an early stage. Subsequently it can occur that a detected damage is not accessible from the outside and a repair by appropriate means must take place from the inside.
Inspector Systems is a specialist in manufacturing of self-propelled, tethered and remote controlled pipe robots for internal inspection, non-destructive testing and machining as well as to provide worldwide services, especially for so called „challenging pipelines“ or buried-, difficult to access- and complex pipe structures of any kind. Examples are pumping lines and tank to tank connections in refineries, street-, railway- or river crossings, pipes in nuclear-, thermal- and conventional power plants, feeding pipes in gas-, oil- and offshore constructions etc. The modular and flexible design of the pipe robots makes it possible to equip them with different inspection-, testing- or machining modules as well as to insert through limited accesses and to drive pipe systems bi-directionally through bends and inclinations.
This time the world conference and exhibition for inspection and maintenance robotics took place from 22 - 23 October 2019 at the conference centre De Doelen in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. It is a platform to share knowledge and meet a wide range of industry experts.
In the oil and gas processing industry, the requirement for pipe inspections in the plant area is continuously increasing. This is due to a gradually ageing infrastructure and the resulting increase in potential safety risks.
The main areas of application are in the fields of quality assurance and maintenance of nuclear power stations, conventional power stations, refineries, chemical/petrochemical plans, district heating systems, gas pipelines and the off-shore industry.
INSPECTOR SYSTEMS Rainer Hitzel GmbH is based in Rödermark, south from Frankfurt, and has been involved with the development and manufacture of pipe crawler and customer specific special machines since 1983.
Gantry 5's administrative interface has been completely rebuilt from the ground up to meet the needs of tomorrow's developer, today. The admin provides multiple options for styles, layout, particles, and more.
Set up and configure page layouts with Gantry 5's new Layout Manager. Featuring drag-and-drop functionality that gives you the power to place content blocks, resize them, and configure their unique settings in seconds.
The template styling is built with SCSS, a programmable stylesheet language for CSS, making the CSS more dynamic and adaptable. You can easily enable and disable automatic recompilation of SCSS files.
Configuration in Gantry 5 features sophisticated built-in fields such as Icon Picker, Image Picker, Font Picker, Collections, and much more. You can change almost any aspect of a theme without breaking out a single editor.
Protean is built with a responsive layout, which means it automatically adapts to the viewing device, so it will expand and contract accordingly to the size and resolution of the screen, whether mobile, tablet or desktop
