Industries & Applications

Portable, powerful and truly modular, Inuktun’s MicroMag™ magnetic crawler is an ideal tool for remote visual inspection (RVI) of storage tanks, rail cars, pressure vessels, piping systems, nuclear power installations, ship hulls, offshore facilities, and more. Operable above, below or at the waterline, this remotely controlled robotic system offers unparalleled performance in the most challenging environments. And, because it is just one configuration of the Versatrax 100™ crawler, the MicroMag™ is easily adaptable for a range of applications. Multiple vehicle chassis, pan and tilt cameras, long cable lengths and ultrasonic testing (UT) probes are all optional as standard equipment. Or, when something more specific is required, we can integrate client supplied sensors or tools quickly and economically. Easy to deploy and simple to operate, the MicroMag™ system gets you where you need to go… even in the splash zone.
