Rolatube's unique rollable composite enables it to be used in a wide range of industrial applications. The first commercial use of Rolatube technology was as an inspection boom used to examine the core of MAGNOX nuclear reactors, successfully reducing the time needed for inspections and removing the need for expensive, custom transporters.

As a result of our contribution, Rolatube was awarded British Energy’s Outstanding Achievement award for the inspection of the Advanced Gas Cooled Reactor at Hartlepool and has continued to develop and supply systems to the Nuclear and HAZCHEM industries worldwide.

Capable of being deployed at any angle, from vertically upwards and downwards systems to cantilever and adjustable booms to form reeled “crane” jibs, RolaTube technology can simplify and reduce the costs of many inspection tasks.

Current systems operate over distances of up to 22 metres, but there is no limit to the length that can be produced. Additionally, conductors and data lines can be carried within the deployed Rolatube, significantly reducing the complexity of separate umbilical feeds.
