Robotic system for underwater cleaning


koks robotics products adx underwater robot system min

The KOKS SAPOD underwater robot system is designed for heavy and hazardous industrial applications and is suitable for underwater cleaning in order to eliminate the need for personnel to enter a submerged environment. The  KOKS SAPOD  underwater cleaning system is utilized in combination with a vacuum truck for discharging and transporting residue substances, at the bottom of tanks or basins. Therefore the unit is polished via electrochemical cleaning method to make it easy to wash off after the job is done.

The KOKS SAPOD underwater cleaning-system enables its user to clean bottom of tanks without a human entry. Commonly used for the cleaning of residues in water tanks, fire water tanks, cooling water tanks and other types of water basins. 

All the materials which can touch the surface of the silo or tank are made of material which are suitable in tanks of drinking water environments. The polyurethane wheel rings and sealings enable the robot to move smoothly over the surface. During tank cleaning, the suction head follows the tank bottom surface - parallel to the tank bottom. To disrupt the bottom content the robot can be equipped with a brush.

The KOKS SAPOD underwater cleaning-system can be fitted with various option kits that are appropriate for your needs and/or for industrial applications.
