Keywords:Robotic Maintenance Inspection Service
Invert Robotics provides maintenance services primarily for the inspection of large stainless steel tanks, silos and dryers using robotic technology. Together with our inspection partner, Southern Quality Assurance (SQA), we inspect the internal surface of these vessels and identify defects in weld seams and other imperfections.
Our Service
Our teams consist of an operator and a qualified inspection professional. Together they use a robot to perform maintenance inspections. The robot feeds data to a control station which is positioned outside of the equipment. The qualified inspector reviews the video and sensor feedback in real-time and identifies and classifies defects. The accuracy provided by this method is such that cracks invisible to the naked eye can be detected. A team takes approximately 2 hours to complete a standard stainless steel silo.
As the inspection team are removed from the hazardous area they avoid working at height in a confined space with potentially harmful gases. OSH permits for hazardous work are no longer required. This saves time and hassle during preparation for an inspection. Gas monitoring of confined spaces is no longer needed as our team do not enter the vessel. Our service is safer, faster and more accurate than existing methods such as abseil and scaffold inspection.

Invert Robotics uses world leading climbing robot technology to perform its inspection. A unique adhesion mechanism gives our robots the ability to climb non-magnetic surfaces such as stainless steel, aluminium, glass, wood and smooth concrete. Each robot is built on a platform which uses our patented adhesion mechanism. Beyond that, a range of components and sensors are added. The complexion of these parts is determined by industry requirements and the robots task.
