Corrosion Mapping

Lightbox ImageHYDROFORM
By bringing a semiautomated phased array solution into the corrosion inspection market, Olympus has not only introduced a new technology, but also a new world of possibilities. Say goodbye to unsafe and unreliable motorized rastering of small UT probes; phased array probes cover a larger surface, and can be manually traveled at a safe speed. This solution enables inspectors to be more productive and collect higher resolution data. The HydroFORM is designed to offer the best inspection solution for the detection of wall-thickness reductions due to corrosion, abrasion, and erosion. Our solution also detects mid-wall damage such as hydrogen-induced blistering or manufacturing-induced laminations, and easily differentiate these anomalies from loss of wall thickness. The unique quick adjustment device offered by both scanners allows the wedge/probe assembly to be positioned to any curvature greater than 4 in. OD (101 mm).

 


 

Lightbox ImageREXOFORM
The RexoFORM is a new innovative wedge for phased array 0º and angle beam inspection with the Rexolite delay line. With its unique design, the RexoFORM can be used on pipes of different diameters with no need for multiple curved wedges. In fact, it is simple, small, and easy to use, even when a continuous water supply is not available, and/or in limited access areas such as rope access.

 

 

 


 

Lightbox ImageTRIPOD
The TriPod is a remote operated motorized tank and vessel, used to translate instruments, cameras, or in¬spection devices along ferrous metal surfaces. Using three rare-earth magnets the crawler can climb vertical, horizontal, and inverted surfaces. The three wheeled computerized drive system allows the Tripod to rotate 360° on its own axis. Combining TRIPOD and REXOFORM or HYDROFORM scanner allows the operator to collect C-Scan data on tank and vessel wall with more data compared to conventional B-Scan and also in much less time.
