The SIRENA-5 X-ray crawler is designed to enable panoramic welding inspections of 530 mm to 1,020 mm diameter pipelines. The crawler package consists of a self-propelled trolley with a built-in rechargeable battery, the main X-ray generator, and a compact control unit for positioning the crawler inside a horizontal pipe section with an accuracy of ±10 mm.
The SIRENA-5 employs a smart recovery system that prevents the crawler from becoming lost in a pipeline and initiates automatic return if any of the following is detected:
- Mechanical obstruction in the way
- Water obstruction in the way
- Low battery charge
- Pipe inclinations in excess of 20°
- The crawler is also protected against falling out of the pipe.
