Foreign Objects Search and Retrieval (FOSAR) is a critical task in nuclear power plants, and having efficient tools like the JAWS 2.0™ is paramount to ensure safety and operational efficiency. Xcel’s nuclear sites, Monticello and Prairie Island, recently integrated the JAWS 2.0 ultimate kits into their FOSAR capabilities. These kits proved their effectiveness during routine maintenance at Monticello’s Spent Fuel Pool.
In honor of International Women’s Day 2023, we had the privilege of sitting down with two of our engineers, Natalie Rhoades and Veronica Fitzhugh. Join us as we celebrate their remarkable journey and the collective achievements of women in engineering.
Slurry lines in mining operations face challenges from erosion and corrosion. Sensor Networks’ smartPIMS® and matPIMS™ offer non-intrusive ultrasonic monitoring, providing accurate data without manual inspections. These cost-effective systems enable real-time monitoring, extending pipeline lifespan and optimizing efficiency.
Experience industrial inspections like never before with Sensor Networks, Inc.’s Hi-Def-PTZx™ camera and JAWS® retrieval tool systems. Our advanced 1080p Hi-Def video capabilities provide a 6:1 pixel ratio improvement compared to standard-definition video, delivering a more precise and vivid representation of color. This is especially crucial in industrial inspections where small color variations can impact the accuracy of evaluations.
The Amine Treating Unit (ATU) is a critical area for refineries to manage from an environmental compliance and safety perspective. During the Amine Treating Process, many corrosion/erosion events occur which can cause setbacks in asset integrity planning. In this case study, the asset owner used wireless UT sensors to accurately trend their asset’s corrosion rate and reduce maintenance costs by $4.8M.
