Robotic detection equipment, UT-Robot

Canny Oil has successfully developed an economical and reliable method for marine drilling riser inspection – UT-Robot. Our UT inspection procedure uses special inspection equipment and innovative technologies for NDT (non-destructive testing) inspections applied to in-service risers with 400 mm – 600 mm inner diameter and 12 mm – 50 mm wall thickness.

NDT (MPI/UT) inspection is required annually; however, the traditional detection method is extremely costly and time-consuming, with relatively low accuracy. The industry, therefore, is burdened by high inspection costs when using traditional inspection methods each year. Our innovation improves on the traditional method, supplying an efficient new inspection method to simplify the inspection process with around a 50% to 70% reduction in cost per riser for inspection and repair.

Our new inspection methods will enhance your inspection process performance, allowing you to meet certain operational criteria efficiently as well as save on overall inspection cost to a large extent. Please contact us to learn more about the TOFD and PAUT inspection methodologies.
