Epiroc reported its RigScan service solution speeds the equipment audit process, making it less intrusive and more comprehensive. The audit spans as much as a business day and is completed by an Epiroc technician.
Hardware used includes a tablet and cameras. The tablet puts a series of questions and tasks to the technician. Thermal cameras photograph machine components.
The answers are processed, and the pictures are analyzed to determine signs of wear. Epiroc produces the audit results within 72 hours.
RigScan audits can be done routinely, Epiroc reported. Benefits include less downtime from unplanned repairs, and increased longevity for the equipment audited.
