Digester Inspections

Digesters begin the process of pulping

Digesters are the lifeblood of any pulping operation, kicking off the process both of creating pulp and also creating black liquor that fuels the mill. However, operating at high pressure and high temperature while being subject to caustic chemicals creates risks for the mill.

In order to mitigate these risks, regular digestor inspection is required in order to identify issues prior to equipment failure. Traditional inspection methods are dangerous and time consuming, requiring multiple people entering the vessel and taking significant amounts of time.

Gecko’s robotic inspection teams can evaluate every inch of your digester unit internally without requiring human entry the vessel, detecting areas in need of repair.
