PHASED ARRAY WITH BRACELET SCANNER
What makes this scanner great?
- The probability of detecting planar indications.
- Fast inspection.
- You do not need to clear the inspection area of personnel as you would for x-ray inspections.
- The scanner is easy to assemble for different pipe diameters.
- It is low profile so it can easily fit between close parameter piping, for example boiler tubes.
In this video we can see Joe (well…only his hands) performing a small bore phased array inspection on a single V butt weld.
With this crawler we can easily look for discontinuities like lack of fusion, incomplete root penetration, cracks and/or porosity, with not much prep time and no H&S hassle.
