Probot™

High-Performance
Probe Pusher
System

Strong, compact, and light in the same package.

Benefit 1 — Small Footprint

Probot is a powerful, highly advanced, compact, and light probe pusher system. It is easy to transport and set up, has a small footprint, and offers the robustness required by the industry.

Benefit 2 — One-Person Operation

Probot makes one-person inspection a reality — users can benefit from a significant competitive edge with this production-oriented probe pusher system. Probot can dramatically and safely increase inspection speed, while maintaining high-quality results.

Benefit 3 — Versatility and Power

Probot is designed with versatility in mind, exceeding the requirements of BoP inspections, while offering other markets an extraordinary productivity-enhancing tool. By automating probe motion during heat exchanger inspection, the system always yields accurate and reliable data at speeds optimized for the technique.

Probot Remote Control
