Enhance corrosion scanning with versatility, functionality, and simplicity.

A host of valuable features make the ROTIX - Corrosion Chain Scanner an excellent choice for manual non-ferrous corrosion inspection. Built-in positional and index encoders ensure precise measurement while the versatile chain system allows for pipe sizes of 10.2 cm - 96.5 cm (4 in - 38 in).

The HydroFORM Cart (PHS044) manufactured by JIREH requires 8 mm (0.315 in) probe holder pivot buttons.

Part ID: CEG027



Corrosion Scanning

Perform precision corrosion scans with ease. Manually operated, this chain scanner provides encoded probe positioning on non-ferrous inspection surfaces.

Scan Control

The carrier, to which the heavy duty vertical probe holder connects, includes a locking handle which aligns the probes scan path. Simply lift the handle and slide the carrier to the next index position (which is configurable depending on the size of the probe used) to align to the following scan path.

Adjustable Chain

Using various links, and an adjustable buckle, any size of pipe diameter from 10.2 - 96.5 cm (4 - 38 in) may be inspected. The quick release links are designed for simple and efficient setup of the scanner.


Providing encoded positioning for both the X and Y-axis. The built-in encoder output is fully compatible with all standard instruments.


Coated with urethane to reduce the effects of foreign debris to the scanner's motion, Urethane also eliminates slippage of the scanner during vertical applications


Control scanner movement with the scanners brake system.

Heavy Duty Vertical Probe Holder

Designed to carry large probes, the heavy-duty vertical probe holder is compatible with the Olympus HydroFORM when used in conjunction with the HydroFORM Cart.

Cable Managment

Cable Clips allow for routing probe cables and irrigation tubes in an organized, efficient manner on the scanner. This is in addition to the cable management which protects tubes and cables to the instruments.

Three Year Limited Warranty

JIREH warrants product against defects in materials and workmanship for three years from the original date of purchase.

Component Identification

Over-the-top Link

Contains the positional encoder and operates as the backbone of the scanner. Tall enough that the carrier and probe holder can pass through underneath.


With locking options and cable management, the carrier slides effortlessly along the stroke of the scanner carrying the heavy duty vertical probe holder.

Heavy Duty Vertical Probe Holder

Incredibly adjustable to accommodate infinite scan surfaces, probe and wedge sizes as well as scan directions of travel.

Dove-tail link

Attach various accessories, such as the cable management to the dove-tail attachment of this short link.

Short Link

A short connecting link.

Long Link

Roughly the size of 3 short links, the long link is useful for large diameter scan surfaces.


When connected to the catch link, the chain scanner is mounted firmly to the pipe/tube. Chain tension is adjusted using the buckle.

Catch Link

It is used in conjunction with the buckle to secure the scanner to the inspection surface. A dove-tail link is included for attaching optional accessories.


The y-axis encoder tracks the probe position along the stroke.
