IN-PIPE ATEX ZONE 0 ROBOTIC SYSTEM FOR UNPIGGABLE PIPELINES
TUBOT develops and produces in-line robots for non-destructive testing systems, specializing in the diagnosis and cleaning of complex branched sections of pipelines.
The company develops moving robotic platforms that are compatible with existing diagnostic and cleaning modules from different manufacturers.
TUBOT robotic system is designed to estimate the current technical condition of pipelines to prevent accidents, loss of life, ecological damage to the environment and economic costs.
TUBOT was established in 2017 by SYGMA.Novosibirsk.

ONE UNIVERSAL PLATFORM FOR DIFFERENT AREAS
Hydrodynamic cleaning of pipelines
Complex hydrodynamic cleaning of pipelines from deposits without digging it up.
MFL / Ultrasonic / Eddy-Current inspection
Precious diagnostics of pipes include fittings, interconnectors, etc. Prevention of leaks and corrosion.
Coating inside the pipe
Diagnostics of wall thickness and prevention of possible future problems by coating inside after cleaning the pipe.
Machining the welding roots
The most unsustainable part of each pipeline is the welding roots. Machining the welding roots from inside makes it possible not to dig up the pipe for each local repair.
