Robust TOFD scanner makes setup simplePhoenix Inspection Systems Ltd68, Warrington, United Kingdom
The Duo scanner is a new, operator-friendly TOFD inspection solution launched by Phoenix Inspection Systems Ltd. Designed to incorporate the most popular features of existing Phoenix TOFD scanners, Duo offers fast setup and reliable, repeatable inspections of pipe welds, from 2” up to flat plate, in a robust, site-ready scanning frame.
Constructed from durable, light-weight aluminum, Duo combines the benefits of simple, tool-less probe installation and adjustment with a sturdy frame complete with handles which ensure ease of operation and movement around pipes.
Wedges snap in and out of the Duo scanner frame without the need to unscrew any parts. Probe separation is quick and simple to adjust with a graduated scale which allows accurate positioning whilst maintaining probe alignment. Equipped with three strong magnetic wheels that provide adhesion and tracking, the scanner also incorporates a brake for hand repositioning, so is ideal for rope access inspections.
Andrew Brewis, Sales Manager at Phoenix Inspection Systems said: “The Duo scanner has already produced very positive results amongst pilot customers. It neatly combines the benefits of our existing TOFD product range into a solid construction that is suited to all on-site conditions.”
The budget-friendly Duo scanner is also available without wheels for a low-cost, hand-held scanning solution.
