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.
