Can Eddyfi Technologies’ Inuktun robotic crawler inspection systems inspect primary piping in a research reactor? You asked, we answer!

We received some great questions about our IM3™ technology in a recent webinar, and we look forward to answering them over the coming weeks. In this week’s blog, we advise whether Eddyfi Technologies’ Inuktun robotic crawler inspection systems can inspect primary piping in a research reactor. According to the facility, the specific environment had the fuel removed but it was still a radiated atmosphere filled with borated water.

As previously discussed, our robotic crawlers and inspection cameras are completely waterproof*, so many in-service pipe inspection applications pose no problems for IM3™ technology. When it comes to operation in areas with high radiation, Eddyfi Technologies’ Inuktun product line has a proven record of offering remote visual inspection (RVI) and remote-controlled transportation of third-party sensors and tooling for nuclear applications.

Check out how Inuktun Multi-Mission Modular (IM3™) technology has been employed for the Fukushima nuclear remediation here:

Additional applications include remote visual inspection of nuclear waste storage tanks, and structural integrity assessment inside twin reactor pressure vessels. Eddyfi Technologies’ rugged, durable robotic systems are designed to operate under the harshest conditions, like those found in the nuclear sector. As part of regular maintenance, during outages, or under emergency situations, our inspection cameras and crawlers offer unparalleled durability and accurate condition assessments.
