PASSIVE DETECTION OF CUI & MOISTURE.
A battery powered handheld inspection tool, that detects Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI) and moisture, beneath a variety of common industrial coatings, insulations, and non-metallic cladding.
Pi connects wirelessly to an operator laptop, where the data is analysed.
• Inspect without removing cladding and insulation
• Inspect while plant is operational
• Passive technology is 100% human safe
• Real-time inspections
• Detecting Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI)
• Locating concealed moisture within insulation
• Evaluating insulation condition & status
Pipes are fully inspected by combining multiple real-time linear scans into a single inspection dataset.
The data can be exported from the rugged laptop, and viewed on desktop software.
HOW IT WORKS.
Pi detects hidden CUI and moisture, using passive sensors, that measure sub-terahertz energy naturally emitted from corrosion.
Sub-terahertz energy transmits through the protective coating, insulation, and non-metallic cladding layers.
SubTera’s patented real-time technology measures the emitted energy, without removing the external cladding layer, to determine the underlying condition of the pipework, and status of the insulation.
INDUSTRY 4.0 – SENSOR INTEGRATION.
Using a modular design approach, SubTera’s technology is being developed to enable integration with robotic inspection platforms.
The core sensor technology is low power, lightweight, and stand-off, enabling drone based inspection applications.
