As the demands for joint coating quality are becoming more and more stringent, high attention shall be given to proper blasting and the actual coating. We develop Internal Field Joint Coating Robot that travel inside the pipes, find the joint weld, blast clean, vacuum, and coat & inspect. Utilizing various cameras, these robots transmit a real-time video image back to the operator, which is used for control and inspection.
How does it work:
Our robot comprises of Blasting vehicle, liquid spray vehicle, powder spay vehicle, inspection vehicle and recovery vehicle
The robot is composed of two systems: Individual vehicle control system and remote control system. The remote control system incorporates wireless communication system, portable video monitor and operating system. The crawler is guided to move forward, reverse, position, remove dust, blast clean, coati, inspect and shut down by remote control. We switch from ray positioning to optical positioning to increase the precision and accuracy of field joint positioning. It improves the operating environment thoroughly and makes the operation visualized. The robot is also equipped with safety measures for voltage dips and communication disruption enabling itself to run smoothly. The recovery vehicle goes into pipes to rescue the robot in case of fault, failure or other unexpected occasions.
