ZENITH - Robotic Internal Inspections

Zenith thrives in those hard-to-reach, vertical confined spaces. What could traditionally cost hundreds of thousands to inspect, can be covered in a fraction of the time while also saving lives and money with the Zenith. Never break the plane for confined-space entry during your inspections again.

LIMITED TOP ACCESS

The Zenith tripod system is placed at the top of an asset; whether that be on the roof, or at a manway located on the upper side. Thanks to the Extension Arm, the unit enters the environment without inspectors breaking the plane for confined space entry. The operator can control Zenith from multiple locations, whether they are right beside the tripod, or at a distance farther away; typically safe on the ground with other engineers or site management personnel. In fact, Zenith’s Smart Winch acts as a repeater between the Controller and payload, enabling wireless HD video and payload control from over a half-mile away. As with any Zenith configuration, other inspectors or engineers may watch the inspection live by viewing a wireless second screen.

 

HORIZONTAL “RAILCAR” ACCESS

With Zenith’s 30x zoom camera, users can zoom in live during an inspection to see a crack as small as 1/32” from 30 ft away! For example, take the internal inspection of a railcar where the access door is located in the center, but an inspector would need to see 15 feet across the container to survey the far side. Or maybe an API inspector needs to see the opposite side of a storage tank when the access door is only on one edge of the vessel. The advanced payload on the Zenith enables an operator to complete these types of inspections with ease! MOUNT TO EXISTING INFRASTRUCTURE Some assets with top entry have beams built over them to effectively lower equipment inside for outage maintenance and repair. In this instance, Zenith is successfully deployed inside an environment without using the tripod, gantry, or extension arms. The operator would simply detach Zenith’s winch system and mount it to existing infrastructure by using hardware specific to this application.

MOUNT TO EXISTING INFRASTRUCTURE

In some scenarios, there is no manway or entry door for top access to lower the Zenith through. In a real-world scenario with Interactive Aerial’s Inspection Service team, a tower at a pulp & paper mill did not have top access. Mill engineers pointed out a two-inch-wide vent hole on the roof near the center of the tower. This enabled our staff to feed only the Zenith’s cable through the small vent opening, without the Zenith Unit attached, then lower the cable 160ft to the bottom of the asset. Once there, IA’s staff stood outside the asset’s lowest manway and retrieved the cable with our retrieval hook on the end of a pole. They attached the Zenith box, then placed it back inside without ever breaking the plane of confined space. The Zenith successfully inspected the tower with 100% asset coverage, then was safely removed the same way it was put in.
