When precision matters, operators turn to AUT to dive deeper into areas of corrosion and other trouble. Due to production speed and cost of current technologies, AUT is usually deployed on small areas.
But, not anymore! Gecko Robotics' in-house engineers have designed Rapid-AUT to overcome this challenge. Taking advantage of PAUT technology, Rapid-AUT covers up to 600 sqft (56 sqm) in one 12-hr shift with millimeter resolution. This is 5X the speed with significantly improved data density.
94K+ thickness readings per sqft. That's 56 million readings per shift!
5X faster than conventional AUT
General & localized corrosion, pitting, lamination and blistering
Up to 500°F to accomplish on-stream & pre-turnaround inspections
Suitable for tanks, spheres, and pressure vessels, or piping as small as 4” in diameter
Pair Rapid AUT with Rapid Ultrasonic Gridding on large inspection scopes
Utilizing PAUT probes, Rapid AUT indexes over a large area as it rasters, resulting in over 5x speed and 12x more data.
Using a 1mm x 1mm grid, Rapid AUT can cover a 5 x 2 foot surface in only 3 minutes vs. 14 with conventional AUT.
This data can be used for fitness-for-service evaluations, finite element analysis, RBI assessments, and more.
“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 pairing Rapid AUT and Rapid Ultrasonic Gridding, we're able to offer the newest NDT technology alongside traditional NDT mainstays. The Gecko Robotics Inspection Team (GRIT) 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.
