BRACELET is ideal solution for small-bore pipe inspection

A new pipe scanner specially designed for phased array inspection has been produced by Phoenix Inspection Systems.

The BRACELET is a low-profile manual scanner which can be used on pipe diameters ranging from 0.5 to 4 nominal pipe size and can operate in areas of limited access with an envelope of just 0.5 .

The BRACELET is designed to be sure-footed, practical and easy to use. It fits securely to the pipe by means of the bracelet mechanism. Together with the rubber wheels, this provides a sure grip to prevent the scanner slipping during a scan whilst the integrated miniature, splash proof encoder, running on the surface of the pipe, provides positional feedback to the instrumentation.

The BRACELET can operate either with a single phased array probe for pipe-to-fitting inspections or, with the extended bracket, can be configured for dual-sided inspections. It is compatible with industry standard small bore phased array probes and flaw detectors.

Andrew Brewis of Phoenix Inspection Systems said: The BRACELET is the ultimate solution for scanning small-bore pipework. It is lightweight, swift and easy to operate but at the same time is designed to be sure-footed and provide accurate, reliable data. It is ideal for any phased array inspection, particularly on banks of pipes where the presence of obstructions calls for a device that can operate with minimal clearance.
