Gecko offers three types of visual inspections: (1) human visual inspection satisfying all applicable codes (2) crawler-based remote visual inspections, and (3) drone-based remote visual inspections. The high-definition and lighting associated with remote visuals is often sufficient on assets where human entry is not possible or extensive scaffolding would be needed.
As a compliment to our robotic UT services, Gecko uses handheld measurements to complete scope. This is often the case around elbows and other complex geometries not perfectly suited to robots. Our teams are also trained in PAUT techniques to further diagnose damage mechanisms.
This form of NDT is well-suited to find surface cracks on both ferrous and non-ferrous metals, alike. Fluorescent dyes penetrate into surface cracks making the defect visible to the human-eye-equivalent to a 400X magnification. This is a quick and cost effective solution for known susceptible areas or localization on areas that were identified by other NDE techniques.
This service measures the thickness of coatings and treatments on ferrous assets to gauge their performance. Unique to Gecko, this service is enabled robotically to provide large area scans using our TOKA platform robots. This technique is extremely useful to measure metal spray overlay or epoxy coatings that abate corrosion/erosion on ferrous surfaces.
“When you are a hammer, everything looks like a nail,” so the saying goes. We at Gecko refuse to be a hammer. We believe in the best tool for the job. By offering the newest NDT technology alongside traditional NDT mainstays, the Gecko team can deliver the most comprehensive inspection that stays true to the asset under inspection. We take full accountability for each technique deployed and provide an integrated report to save you time and money.
