Scanner

Lightbox ImageWELDROVER

The WeldROVER is a simple, industrial-strength, one-axis encoded scanner that provides the customer with a fully mechanized automated data acquisition. It is designed to make fast and efficient phased array inspections on ferromagnetic piping or vessel girth welds and long seams with minimum training and setup time. The scanner can be configured with up to six probes for phased array, TOFD, and conventional UT inspection. It is operated by a simple two-button remote control with variable speeds. The scanner interfaces with the OmniScan® MX or TomoScan FOCUS LT1 directly without the need for complex software, motion controller electronics, or configuration. It is the perfect fit for the company offering fully mechanized, automated phased array (AUT) inspection services.

 


 

CobrakCOBRA

The COBRA manual scanner is able to inspect standard pipes and tubes as small as 0.84 in. OD to 4.5 inch OD. With its very slim design, this manual scanner inspects pipes in limited access areas where minimal clearance is required. Adjacent obstructions such as piping, supports, and structures can be as close as 12 mm (0.5 in.). This spring-loaded scanner is designed to hold onto pipes of different diameters. The COBRA scanner is characterized by its smooth-rolling encoded movement enabling precise data acquisition. The scanner can hold two phased array probes for a complete inspection of the weld in one pass. For pipe-to-component inspections, the scanner can be quickly configured to make one-sided inspections with only one probe. This Olympus solution uses low-profile phased array probes with optimized elevation focusing, which improves the detection of small defects in thin-wall pipes. The COBRA scanner ensures stable, constant, and strong pressure thus providing good UT signals and precise encoding around the full circumference of the pipe. This complete solution package is small and lightweight for easy transport. The scanner is also waterproof, rust-free, and CE compliant.

 


 

Lightbox ImageHSMT Compact

The HSMT-Compact is a light, small, and versatile manual one-axis encoded scanner. It can be used -with up to four probes- on plates and for circumferential scans on pipes as small as 4 in. schedule (4.5 in. OD). The scanner length can be changed and the frame can extend outside the limit of the wheels, providing a configuration that is well suited for hard-to-reach places such as pipe-to-component welds. A typical configuration includes two phased array probes and a pair of TOFD probes, to comply with ASME code.

 


 

Lightbox ImageHST Lite

The new HST-Lite scanner is the perfect choice for cost-effective, TOFD inspections when signal quality is important. The combination of magnetic wheels and spring-loaded probe holders offer the stability required to perform high quality, one-line inspections. The scanner can be operated using only one hand, and will attach to ferromagnetic surfaces even when in an upside-down position. The scanner's position can be encoded around the circumference of pipes as small as 4.5 in. (114.3 mm) OD, as well as on flat surfaces. Adjustment of the different scanner components can be performed without tools.

 


 

Lightbox ImageChainscanner

The CHAIN™ scanner is the optimum, manual pipe-inspection solution for a pipe range with outside diameter of 45 mm to 965 mm (1.75 in. to 38 in.) and the possibility of two encoded axes. The scanner, which is held by chain links instead of magnetic wheels, is able to inspect ferromagnetic or non-ferromagnetic surfaces. The chain links also help ensure a straight displacement of the scanner as it eliminates steering problems. Finally, it is useful when the area around the pipe is not entirely accessible as the scanner can be rotated around the pipe using the chain links. Main applications are:
• Circumferential-pipe weld inspections with phased array, TOFD, or conventional UT
• Corrosion mapping of small areas with phased array or conventional UT (using XY; 2 encoder models)

 


 

Lightbox ImageGlider Scanner

The GLIDER X-Y Scanner is a 2-axis encoding scanner for the manual inspection of slightly curved or flat composite surfaces. The scanner is well suited for raster scanning with the following technologies:
• Conventional ultrasonics (UT)
• Phased array ultrasonics (PAUT)
• Eddy current (EC)
• Eddy current array (ECA)
