RealWear Assists In Repairing Coke Drums
A case study on Becht’s website talks through how the use of Augmented reality by AREA member RealWear Inc was used to assist in repairing coke drums.
Becht was awarded a project to perform a “Repair versus Replace” analysis of failing coke drums at an Indian Refinery. Due to travel restrictions, the Becht team was unable to travel to the site for field walk-downs and inspections.
Becht utilized an in-country sub-contractor (Ingenero) to perform the walk-down utilizing the RealWear glasses which allowed the Becht experts to be there virtually for important field visits in the absence of being able to visit on site.
Utilizing RealWear smart glasses gave the Becht team a better perspective than drawings and photos ever could.
