Robotic Inspection In The Chemical Industry
The continued expansion of the global economy means the inevitable growth of the chemical industry. It is a massive industry with diverse niche sectors, all of which play an important role in any advanced or growing economy. The diversity and complexity of the chemical industry are its hallmarks, as are its innovation and ability to adapt to changing economic and technological realities. The increased adoption of autonomous robotic inspection in chemical facilities is a testament to this hallmark. REQUEST A DEMO
AUTOMATING inspection in chemical facilities
THE NEED: rising expenses and safety concerns
The chemical industry is an innately hazardous industry with constant, significant risks of fire or explosion. It is also an industry with considerable impacts on the environment. Inspections need to be undertaken in ways that are economically and logistically viable whilst ensuring the continued safety and ecological viability of chemical facilities.
Costly downtimes caused due to late detection of anomalies
Inspection rounds are mandatory for operational safety and asset protection
The repetitive nature of routine inspections has a waning attention risk for humans
Health and safety risks arise when humans work near hazardous materials or in hazardous or confined locations
THE SOLUTION: Robotic inspection
Energy Robotics is in the business of providing cutting-edge software that enables robots to undertake intelligent, customized inspections at chemical plants.
Importantly, robots equipped with our software are able to conduct inspections in hazardous or difficult locations, such as in confined spaces or potentially explosive ATEX (and IECEx) Zone 1 environments, thereby ensuring that employees are not exposed to those dangerous environments. This in turn frees up employees to do other, less tedious and hazardous work.
Our software solution enables inspections to be performed at a higher frequency and with greater accuracy. We can accommodate a multitude of sensors on a fleet of different robots to meet customer-specific inspection needs. Robot operators can monitor such a diverse fleet of robots from anywhere using encrypted connections via WiFi or mobile phone networks.
Automatically generated inspection reports are uploaded to the cloud, where operators can also access them via an API. With high quality inspection data, customers receive actionable insights into their operations, allowing them to make proactive decisions through the early detection of anomalies.
