A transport platform for an in-tube robotic flaw detector has been developed, which is capable of unrestricted maneuvering in a complex piping diametr from 300 mm, getting on the wheels after overturning and overcoming vertical obstacles.
The absence of an additional mechanism for deactivating the magnetic field in the platform design leaves additional space for technological equipment placement on the platform.
The proposed platform is adequately for designing small-sized pipe flaw detectors on its basis, as well as other technological devices used in various National Economy Sectors. The platform capability to turn over on its wheels independently eliminates the emergency situations occurrence during diagnostic work, and kinematics provides unlimited maneuvering in a complex pipeline manifold.
