Aurora, Colorado (PressExposure) September 17, 2008 -- EnerisQ International, LLC announced today that it will represent OTIS Probe (OTIS-P) storage tank inspection services to its global base of energy industry services effective immediately. OTIS-P is an economical and effective way to inspect above ground storage tanks using ultrasonic waves, and can satisfy API 653 inspection requirements.
OTIS Probe inspects aboveground storage tanks (AST's) containing oil products, water, or virtually any type of liquid. This is accomplished with the tanks in-service and full of product. The tank does not need to be cleaned at all during inspection. The end result is a tremendous savings to the tank owner while greatly reducing the safety and environmental risks associated with conventional methods. The OTIS probe incorporates transducers for ultrasonic testing (UT) in a custom-designed track mechanism that has the ability to brush debris, such as sludge and sediment, away from the ultrasonic assembly. The OTIS Probe is deployed through the tank's top man way and the location of the Probe on the tank floor is controlled by an operator positioned on the top of the tank. UT data collected by the probe is analyzed to report the thickness of the tank floor as well as any pitting or corrosion.
Other robotic pipelines services available include: online and in service (OTIS) robotic tank inspection and cleaning, Guided Wave Ultrasonic Testing (GWUT), Remote Field Testing (RFT), Ultrasonic In-Line Inspection (UTILI), Advanced Pipeline Geometry PIG (APGPIG), Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL), Acoustic Valve Leak Detection (VPAC), Ultrasonic Phase Array (UPA), Expandable Eddy Current Spinner (EECS), In-Line Video Inspection (IVI) and many other tests and solutions for pipelines.
EnerisQ utilizes partners that are highly experienced in providing conventional nondestructive testing services, advanced nondestructive testing services and specialty inspection services. The company's clients benefit from the complimentary services and technical experience to improve productivity and maximize the effectiveness of their inspection budgets. All products and services are designed to be "non-disruptive" which allows for inspection, cleaning, and testing without having to shut down systems.
EnerisQ specializes in online tank inspection and cleaning (OTIS robotics), pipeline integrity testing (UWT), and tubular inspection (NDT). The company also offers the following services and products on a global basis: earth grounding, surge suppression, and remote water purification solutions. Integrated consulting services and vulnerability assessments are available for members of the global energy community as well.
