SAIR is a wireless magnetic crawler robot capable of conducting ultrasonic and visual inspection on various assets like tanks, vessels, pipes and elbows. Its unique and patented design makes it highly maneuverable on curved surfaces from 8” in diameter up to a flat plate. In addition, SAIR is equipped with gas sensors for detecting hazardous and flammable gases.

Inspection of elevated pipes and hard to access locations has never been more convenient. With SAIR, there is no need for costly scaffolding and the whole system weighs less than 15kg, which makes it ideal for On Stream Inspection (OSI) and also during Testing and Inspection (T&I).
The robot is controlled by a rugged tablet where reliable UT thickness data (A-scan and B-scan) can be collected and visualized in real-time on a 10.1” sunlight viewable touchscreen.
