About Sciphyn

At Sciphyn, we aren’t just building a business – we’re disrupting an outdated industry.

About Sciphyn

Since 2009, we’ve been pushing the boundaries of robotic technology to help our customers maintain productivity, minimize waste, increase safety, and reduce liability.  From our headquarters in Houston, TX we serve companies around the world; including, petroleum refineries, chemical plants, steel mills, and many more.

We use the best of cutting-edge technology and old-fashioned human ingenuity to get things done.  That means we bring together equipment you couldn’t find anywhere else, along with skilled operators and technicians who can adapt to the unexpected.  Both elements are crucial, as you can’t handle industrial services like ours without the right equipment.  Likewise, years of experience have taught us that blueprints and schematics are never 100% accurate;  there are always unanticipated obstacles and barriers that have to be worked around.  Our dedication to excellence will ensure our customers are receiving the best.

What Happened to Scantron Robotics USA, Inc.?

If you knew us as Scantron Robotics USA, Inc. don’t worry, its still us!  We are in the process of giving our brand a fresh new identity.  As we work through the transition, you might notice the Scantron logo on some of our advertising material; we apologize for any confusion this may cause.

We hope you love our new name and look as much as we do.  We are excited to continue serving you as Sciphyn, Inc.

Our Services

Robotic Sludge Removal

Our micro-dredging robots can clean in spaces where human divers can’t; including submerged spaces with toxic chemicals or restricted access.  Not only can our customizable machines fit a variety of environments using various augers, pumps, and track configurations, but they can remediate the water back into your tank through a closed loop.  


In some situations it may be difficult or impossible for plant managers, engineers, or inspectors to determine things like sediment levels or structural integrity in an industrial tank.  This can be a particularly big issue with submerged spaces that would be dangerous for humans to enter. 


We are experts in keeping our customers in full operation. Our innovative technology and underwater expertise has allowed us to solve various problems for our customers without taking their tank out of service.
