Oceanscan's T-Type Acoustic Inspection System is availbale for hire with or without technicans.
The patented T-Type Acoustic Inspection System measures the volume and topology of sludge sediments in the bottom of liquid storage tanks (e.g. crude oil).
The system includes an ATEX certified tool that is inserted into the tank through a suitable access hole in the roof until fully submerged in the liquid. The end of the tool has an angled phased array that produces acoustic beams to scan a sector of the tank floor and wall.
The PC based data acquisition produces a 3D display of the sediment layer and calculates the volume of sediment using the known geometry of the tank. Sector data from multiple entry points can be combined to give 100% coverage of the tank floor.
