3DSL Rhino

The Next Generation in 3D NDT Imaging

3DSL Rhino

# #

Welcome the Rhino: the next generation in field ruggedized 3D imaging. Like the pachyderm for which it's named, the 3DSL Rhino is ready for field work. With an ingress protection level of 67 (IP67) and shock protection, this rugged Rhino can be dropped in water, dropped in mud, taken out in the Canadian winter or the Arabian summer and continue taking high quality 3D images.

The 3DSL NDT software suite, included with the 3DSL Rhino, enables complete assessment of infrastructure damage and produces damage reports that are compliant with industry standard recommendations.

Product Details & Extras

Keep your infrastructure safe. The 3DSL Rhino was developed with field inspection in mind. In addition to the imaging hardware and analysis software, field accessories are available to facilitate all damage assessment work and ensure correct measurements every time. Industry leading accuracy, precision, and resolution result in the highest quality measurements. Check out our video demonstration as well as the specifications, applications, and accessories below.

Product Benefits

The rugged Rhino

  • Can operate in windy deserts
  • In rain and snow
  • Can be dropped
  • Integrates with 3DSL robots
  • Produces standard 3D data sets that can be exported to a variety of software packages
  • Maintains +/- 2 mils (0.050 mm) accuracy

3D images can be analyzed using the 3DSL NDT software suite, included with each Rhino, to determine the maximum safe operating pressure and burst pressure using RSTRENG, ASME B31G and modified AMSE B31G. Dent analysis is compliant with ASME B31.8 and B31.4. The option API 579 modules produce API compliant reports for a variety of chemical and petro-chemical plant infrastructure.
