The Mobile Bridge Inspection Unit (MBIU) is an Electro-mechanically driven Articulated Structure mounted on a vehicle (a truck) as an aid towards proper bridge inspection or similar infrastructures by enabling an inspection team of 3-4 persons carrying instruments access to the underside of bridge decks over flowing rivers or gorges, ROBs and fly overs and grade separated structures.
The Almondz team used the Mobile Bridge Inspection Unit to perform physical bridge inspection of the underside of bridge structures to assess the distress condition of the various components of the structure. It enables us to clear bushes and small trees from their roots to prevent damage in the future. Mobile Bridge Inspection Unit is also used to inspect and clean drainage spouts, expansion joints, pedestals in addition to cleaning and greasing bearings. Tests required as per the specified guidelines of IRC:SP 18 and IRC:SP 35 such as NDT and Core cutting etc are carried out using the MBIU.
