Swift

Single or dual direction manual weld scanner

Swift is a compact single axis, magnetic wheeled scanner that holds a pair of TOFD or phased array probes for weld inspection. This low profile scanner operates on 3” pipe (Ø88.9mm) up to flat. Swift has the innovative option of pivoting wheel units to enable B or D scans.

Designed to complement the Phoenix manual scanner range, Swift provides a simple scanner design capable of accurate high performance inspections in difficult-access areas. Swift comes complete with a spring loaded waterproof wheel encoder to provide accurate position recording for defect sizing of welds. The tool-free probe holders provide the operator with quick setups and adjustment of probes and wedges.

Two sets of rubber tyred magnetic wheels firmly attach the Swift scanner to ferritic inspection surfaces, providing stability and a smooth rolling action, whilst scanning. The single direction Swift is fitted with a brake to fix the scanner’s location at any point, allowing the operator to let go of the scanner partway through the inspection then resume scanning at the same point. Complete with a high-resolution encoder (33 steps/mm), the Swift scanner offers exceptional flexibility and signal quality in a compact user-friendly unit.
