When Encorus provides an inspection, they check all necessities. Inspections and thickness measurements of the tank walls can be made manually with the inspector in a man lift or hang down from the top. However, a much safer way to make an inspection is to use a crawling robot. These robots have magnetic wheels that allow them to cling to the tank walls and avoids putting an inspector’s life at risk. Using remote controls, an operator guides them into positions and makes the necessary measurements. They work great on the side walls, however, getting to a tank floor is a different story since it is not accessible from the outside. The floor is particularly prone to thinning due to corrosion attack and tank owners must find the weak spots in the floors before they breach the tank’s integrity.
