Small Bore Weld Scanner

This manually operated belt scanner is the ultimate scanning aid for phased array inspection of circumferential welds in small bore pipework. With a radial height of 13mm the lightweight, low-profile Bracelet scanner is designed to be used in areas of limited access.

This device is extremely simple to set up and use for weld testing on pipes from 0.5” to 12” nominal pipe size (NPS) and the innovative tool-free design allows for speedy setups between this range. The Bracelet is available in a single-sided configuration making it suitable for pipe-to-fitting inspections, as well as straight welds. A dual-sided configuration is also available with bridging plates and two phased array probes for complete weld inspection in one scan.

This scanner comprises a series of links to make a flexible belt that easily wraps around the pipe, past neighbouring obstructions to provide 360°inspection when only half the pipe is accessible. The belt links can easily be added or removed for resizing the scanner to use on different pipe diameters. The scanner is compatible with industry-standard miniature phased array transducers and incorporates a miniature encoder so the data can be recorded referenced to its location around the pipe.
