Thickness measurement

Hello everybody.
May somebody help me?
I need measure thickness of pipewall but I have one trouble.
Diameter of pipeline is 2500mm, and thickness of pipe wall is about 6-10mm.
I have apparatus DM-2LCDM with transducer DA211.
And what trouble?
This pipe is in blast furnance. Its leaning gas tubing.Entrance to the pipeline is only from one side(from above), and is impossible go round all pipe because its much high(60m).But I need measure all surface, but my hand is too short.(diameter 2500mm). Do you know how can I solve this trouble?
Thank you.
Milan
Sorry for my poor english.

Re: Thickness measurement
You have an interesting problem - and I think we have a good solution for you - we manufacture a CONFIGURABLE magnetic scanner - that can easly go around the inside of a 2500 mm pipe - and perform a 100% thickness survery for you.

If you follow the link below to our website and get information on LSI (Large Structure Inspection) System.

It would be more than likely that we can help you perform this test - we have systems available for use in North America (4 systems), Europe (4 systems), the Middle East (1 system), South America (2 systems) and Japan (1 system).

Alternatively, you may contact me directly for more information.

Re: Thickness measurement
From what Mr.Milan wrote, I got the impression that he cannot access the ID of the pipe, but can access the pipe only from OD and that too from above. In such a case, a magnetic crawler or a ring with the probe mounted by a spring so that contact is assured can be tried.

If he clarifies the access (from OD or ID), the solutions can be thought of.
