Apellix™ Now Piloting Drone-Based UT Inspections
Apellix is now identifying pilot projects for ultrasonic wall thickness (UT) inspections of above-ground storage and terminal tanks.
Using semi-autonomous drones, Apellix performs UT wall thickness measurements on tanks as high as 60 meters. The system can measure up to 100 locations per hour, reporting real-time results to the engineer who is safely on the ground. All test data, as well as test location, environmental data, and video confirmation is time-stamped and stored on the onboard computer for easy download to Excel™ or your customer reporting software.
The Apellix systems use the DeFelsko PosiTector UTG M gauge with a single element 5 MHz contact transducer. If you are interested in evaluating the system, please visit the Apellix website or contact Apellix at firstname.lastname@example.org or +1-904-647-4511
Apellix, an early-stage software company based in Jacksonville, Florida, has developed an aerial robotic platform with patented software and sensor arrays control precision flight to complete a wide range of tasks currently too expensive or too dangerous to otherwise perform.
