A thorough tank inspection is critical to prevent leaks, failures, and unexpected maintenance costs. Gecko Robotics brings a fresh perspective and a suite of robot-enhanced NDT tools to deliver the most comprehensive API 653 inspection on the market.
Our API 653 protocols satisfy any combination of internal, external, and deferral inspections. A comprehensive API 653 comprises an external visual inspection, internal floor inspection, external shell inspection, and strip-scan roof inspection.
Major benefits of inspecting with Gecko are:
The service and inspection history of the tank is reviewed to deploy appropriate Gecko resources.
Safe fill heights, settlement surveys, 3D laser analysis, T_min assessment, inspection intervals, remaining life, and corrosion rate determination.
All reports, alongside interactive data-maps, are available online 24/7 for maintenance review and planning.
Complete ultrasonic gridding of roof, shell, floor, and critical zone to determine general thinning and map areas of corrosion.
Detection and grading of top side and bottom side features.
Identify any structural abnormalities, leaks, coating failures, or areas of concern for closer NDE.
