Column and shaft inspections have been conducted manually for years by lowerin an inspector down a bridge column or shaft, sometimes with oxygen. Placing an inspector at risk and providing only subjective information for the asset owner..Today’s current inspections can be conducted robotically.
New non-destructive testing methods that utilize robotics and advanced non-destructive testing can better assess shafts and columns than ever before.
With Infrastructure Preservation Corporations ColumnScan®, inspectors can remain outside of the danger zone and inspect a bridge shaft or column with much more detail and accuracy than ever before.
Infrastructure Preservation Corporation, IPC has developed advanced robotic column and shaft inspections to provide more quantitative data in a safer manner. All inspections exceed FHWA and AASHTO protocols for NBI inspections.
