Introducing the Revolutionary Radical Robotics Vessel Cleaning System

January 9, 2024

Transforming Vessel Cleaning with Advanced AI Integration

The vessel cleaning landscape is witnessing a groundbreaking change with the introduction of the Radical Robotics Vessel Cleaning System. This new generation system is not just another cleaning tool; it’s a comprehensive solution that blends advanced artificial intelligence with a full line of robotic equipment, redefining the process from start to finish.

Powered by the Vantage Suite Software

At the heart of this system lies the Radical’s Vantage Suite software. This innovative platform empowers you to pre-plan your cleaning projects and monitor progress in real-time within the vessel. With the Vantage Suite, designing your vessel form from scratch becomes a breeze. It allows for detailed planning, including the placement of nozzles, man’s boots, and accommodating various tank end shapes, ensuring that your equipment is optimally placed for the best cleaning performance.

Overcoming Obstructions with Ease

The Radical System skillfully addresses zone rating issues that stem from external obstructions like FMS piping, walkways, roads, and other structures. Its hot zone components are CSA and USA Class 1 Division 1 certified, suitable for gas groupings B, C, and D, and also ATEX Zone Zero certified, ensuring safety and compliance in hazardous environments.

The Vessel Cleaning Tool (VCT): A Game-Changer

The VCT, a robust all-in-one solution, is a standout feature of the system. Weighing 130 lbs, it’s surprisingly easy to handle, requiring no specialized lifting equipment. It can be disassembled into two parts – the tool body and the nozzle – for easy maneuverability. The VCT offers 360° rotational coverage and up to 90° articulation, adaptable for various vessel sizes with interchangeable nozzles. It extends up to 3 ft inside the vessel, guaranteeing thorough cleaning.

Command Centre: The Brain Behind the Operation

The system is managed from a command center, featuring a control cab with two stations and a rear compartment for core system components. This compartment can be customized to hold up to six tools, 250 ft reels of hydraulic hose, and a hydraulic power unit. For smaller projects, a mini control station is available, offering the same capabilities in a more compact form.

Daisy Chaining for Efficient Operation

A significant innovation is the ability to daisy chain multiple VCTs, reducing the need for extensive hydraulic hosing and cumbersome umbilical cords. This feature not only makes the system more efficient but also easier to manage.

Explosion-Proof Camera and Lighting System

An explosion-proof camera and lighting system are included in the adapter plate, enabling remote monitoring of the cleaning process. This telescopically designed tool can extend up to 3 ft inside the vessel, offering unmatched versatility and coverage.

Enhanced Cleaning Efficiency

The Radical System sets itself apart from traditional cleaning tools by providing direct control over the flow of fluid, focusing on problem areas, and significantly boosting cleaning efficiency. The effluent can be routed to existing on-site tanks or the Radical Robotics Circulation Management Tank (CMT), which processes and recycles water and chemicals for reuse.

High-Pressure, Low-Flow Nozzle for Final Touches

For final cleaning, a high-pressure, low-flow nozzle can be attached to the VCT, delivering 3500 PSI to remove even the toughest residues, leaving the vessel clean for safe entry and inspection.

Customization for Diverse Project Needs

The versatility of the Radical System is evident in its ability to be tailored to specific project needs. Whether it’s for a short-term project requiring a trailer-mounted setup or a permanent installation for long-term projects, this system adapts seamlessly.

In conclusion, the Radical Robotics Vessel Cleaning System is not just an innovative cleaning solution; it’s a game-changer in vessel maintenance, setting new standards in efficiency, safety, and environmental responsibility.
