Crawler Tech Tips: Performance and Reliability
Robotic crawler systems get used in some of the harshest operational environments Mother Nature can throw at us. Although the equipment is designed to take a beating, a vast array of moving parts inevitably will require the system owner to perform some sort of maintenance.
Due to the operational requirements of their job, many remote visual inspectors express that they cannot afford to part with their crawler/camera equipment for extended periods of time. However, one must consider the indirect cost of ignoring scheduled maintenance. It can be catastrophic if a component breaks down due to preventable wear on a job site.
For that reason, it is highly recommended that inspectors and operators follow a preventative maintenance routine. In the long run, regularly scheduled preventive maintenance will save you money, versus the ‘snowball effect’ that happens when numerous components fail that was compounded by neglect and excessive wear.
Pro-actively servicing your gear at routine intervals will help mitigate its need for repair, thus allowing you to achieve the highest level of performance and reliability.
