Based in Antofagasta, Chile, TESRA has been featured using the Inuktun Versatrax 150™ crawler system to inspect long pipelines at a local copper mine. Check out some of the images captured with their camera, and see how the laser lines were employed to help provide a comprehensive report on asset integrity within mining pipelines. 

TESRA, Technology and Engineering Services for Radical Advancement, is no stranger to our blog. Just recently, TESRA upgraded their capability with a new Inuktun Spectrum 90™ pan-tilt-zoom camera, adding improved LED lighting and integrated laser lines.

“The equipment has to be 100 percent reliable. Any defect found that could turn into a broken pipeline is immediately (reported) and the company starts their procedure to change or repair. We cannot fail completing an inspection due to failures with the robot. That is totally unacceptable”, comments Gerardo Olivares, TESRA’s General Manager.

Quality and reliability are critical; that’s why TESRA keeps coming back for its remote inspection needs in the mining sector.
