MDR’s 3D floor scanner is the highest performance Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL) storage tank inspection system of today. Building on over 20 years experience, the manufacturer has developed top and bottom defect discrimination using surface topology air-gap reluctance sensors (STARS), enabling tank engineers to determine the optimum repair strategy and improve remaining life assessment (RLA) & risk based inspection (RBI) maintenance programs.


This high end technology has the highest density of MFL sensors, coupled with advanced signal processing to deliver greater accuracy and probability of detection at maximum efficiency.


MDR uses a revolutionary versatile scanning solution applicable to a broad array of applications including surveying, building information modelling, industrial facilities etc.

The software is an integrated software suit for surveyors and engineers that takes advantage of the rich point cloud data sets.  The software enables the user to visualize, explore, register and manipulate an as-build scene of point cloud data.  It allows surveyors and engineers to produce compelling 2D and 3D deliverables for direct output or export. 

Using the scanner and software, MDR’s fully trained inspectors are able to produce high quality calibration, deformation, settlement and contour reporting.  The scanner can also capture high resolution data for topographical maps, generating 2D and 3D CAD views, measuring distances, areas and volumes.


Our high end drone equipment assists in Visual Inspections of Tanks, Vessels and pipelines. You can record, view live feeds, as well as take still shots of items using the onboard Full HD video, allowing safe access to areas not easlier accessed.

With its compact, quiet and autonomous features, safety is a premium in the use of this equipment.

Our Operational Technicians are fully qualified by CASA and are well knowledgable and trained in the use of this equipment.



Phased array is widely used in several industrial sectors, such as construction or power generation. This method is an advanced NDT method that is used to detect component failures i.e. cracks or flaws and thereby determine component quality.

Due to the possibility to control parameters such as beam angle and focal distance, this method is very efficient regarding the defect detection and speed of testing.

Apart from detecting flaws in components, phased array can also be used for wall thickness measurements in conjunction with corrosion testing.

Phased array can be used for the following industrial purposes:


  • Inspection of Welds
  • Thickness measurements
  • Corrosion inspection
  • Flaw detection


Our fast and efficient remote access ultrasonic corrosion mapping equipment is designed to evaluate the condition of ferrous structures such as storage tanks, large diameter pipelines, pressure vessels and other critical equipment, supporting effective and safe operation for MDR Certification Engineers clients. The new scanner can provides our clients with 100% coverage in a band up to 600 mm wide, significantly increasing Probability of Detection of corrosion, enabling our inspectors to make recommendations based on the corrosion allowances and tolerances.


Ultrasonic C-scan imaging, often simply referred to as C-scan imaging, is a non-destructive testing (NDT) technique used to visualize and assess the internal structure, defects, and anomalies within a material or component. This technique relies on ultrasonic waves, which are high-frequency sound waves, to create detailed two-dimensional images of the object being inspected. Ultrasonic C-scan imaging is widely employed in various industries, including aerospace, manufacturing, and medicine, for its ability to detect flaws, voids, or irregularities that may be invisible to the naked eye.


Long Range UT (LRUT) Pipeline Inspection is a standard Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) screening method to inspect pipework in many industrial disciplines, such as oil and gas, petrochemical and power generation. LRUT is highly sensitive to most defect types while experiencing low attenuation in most situations, which is ideal for the inspections of a long length of pipework, to identify welds, supports, defects, and other features.  Echoes reflecting from these features can then be used to measure their locations and severities (in the case of a defect).

LRUT screening is done by wrapping a removable transduction ring around the circumference of the tube/pipe at the desired location, which can be many metres away from the region of interest.
