In confined spaces and systems that are rather inaccessible, a tool or some other foreign material may fall or be dropped and must consequently be removed. Failure to remove it may cause severe damage on engines, turbines, pipelines, vessels and other components or equipment.

slika1 The removal of foreign material is extremely demanding, due to being confined by narrow, inaccessible spaces. Prerequisite to carrying out the removal, is appropriate equipment which firstly enables remote sensing/observation (cameras, videoscoopes,…), and secondly, the removal itself; i.e., remotely controlled tools.

By means of state-of-the-art technology and accompanying instruments to fit various shapes, material and sizes, the removal of foreign material is performed in a fast manner which is of extreme importance in terms of the duration of unplanned stop/shutdown.
