Most of the bulk liquids like hydrocarbon liquids, chemicals, petrochemical, fuel oils and industrial water across the industry are stored in above ground storage tanks. But over time, these tanks start to corrode due to corrosivity product stored and integrity of bottom plates of these tanks are critical for service life span.
So, these tanks need to be inspected at regular intervals. Currently, the conventional method needs draining, cleaning, degasification and ventilation-all of which incur significant costs & time for tank owners as well as becomes risky both for human and the environment.
We have developed the In-services Tank Inspection System robotic inspection tool called PetroBot ITIS Rover which can inspect bottom plates of live liquid filed storage tanks without any shutdown. This ITIS Rover is having ATEX certification from Notified Body of European Union for use in hazardous area.
ITIS Rover have successfully cleared all its testing and completed it's first Inspection of water and hydrocarbon tank at IndianOil Corporation Ltd., Mathura Refinery. 🎉
ATEX Certified ITIS Rover recently inspected Tanks at IndianOil Corporation Limited, Digboi, India's Oldest Refinery. 🎉
Why ITIS Rover over Manual Inspection?
Save Owners Time
PetroBot ITIS takes less time to complete inspection as compared to manual inspection. This helps the owner to know the condition of the tank faster than the usual way.
Avoid Unnecessary Expenses
PetroBot ITIS eliminates the high cost of tank shutdown time and the need for temporary storage using ITIS Rover which works in an operational tank.
PetroBot ITIS minimizes hazardous waste disposal costs. It also reduces environmental risks such as oil spills and VOC release.
Easy to Deploy
PetroBot ITIS is quite portable and requires minimal support systems for launch and recovery compared to manual inspection. This avoids disruptions in plant operations, keeping revenue constant.
Safe to Inspect - ATEX
PetroBot ITIS ensures safety by eliminating confined space human entry and exposure to hazardous chemicals and gases. ITIS Rover follows strict specifications made by petroleum organizations and is ATEX Certified making it safe in tanks too.
PetroBot ITIS is cost-economical than Manual Inspection techniques present in the industry. Thus, makes it easier for an owner to take care of their tank using frequent ITIS inspection instead of yearlong waiting.
