At PetroBot, we understand the challenges
of maintaining the integrity of above-ground storage tanks.
Over time, these tanks can corrode due to the corrosive
products they store, and regular inspections are necessary
to ensure their structural integrity. However, the
conventional methods for tank inspection are costly,
time-consuming, and pose risks to both humans and the
That's why we developed the PetroBot In-services Tank Inspection System (ITIS) Rover. This innovative robotic tool allows for the inspection of bottom plates on live liquid-filled storage tanks without the need for shutdowns, draining, cleaning, degasification, or ventilation.
Equipped with an array of UT Probes, the ITIS Rover is able to conduct bottom plate scanning and corrosion surveys while the tank is in operation and filled. Plus, its inspection data acquisition and navigation module ensure safety and prevent unwanted accidents.
With the PetroBot ITIS Rover, tank owners can conduct inspections quickly and efficiently, saving time and money while protecting their tanks and the environment. Our ITIS Rover is ATEX and PESO certified, making it possible to inspect tanks on-stream without any shutdown. This not only saves time and tank cleaning costs, but it also allows you to extend the service life of your tank as per OISD STD 129/API STD 653.
