FOR INCIDENTS WHERE EXPLOSIVE GAS MAY BE PRESENT
Traditionally emergency response teams wearing breathing apparatus and protective clothing are required to inspect events such as gas leaks on well-heads. They pass the information they gather to plant operators who act on the basis of what they’re told or ask the response team to gather more information. Often the response team will be entering a potentially hazardous environment containing high pressure, explosive and/or toxic gas. A first responder robot that is designed for potentially explosive environments can eliminate this risk in a similar way to bomb-disposal robots.
The first responder is typically deployed from an emergency response truck and driven at short range using a pad controller. It acts as the eyes, ears and nose of the emergency response team keeping them away from the hazard during the early phases of an investigation. The ExR-1 first responder is unique in that it is Ex certified and won’t trigger an explosion if hydrocarbon gas is present.
SENSES & MANIPULATION
Human sized robots that replace the sight, hearing, smell, touch and hands of operators in flammable and explosive environments.
Thanks to the 4G network capabilities the operator can control our robots remotely from a safe distance; both onshore and offshore.
