Perform complex corrosion inspection using any number of accessories.

The automated SKOOT - Corrosion Mapping Scanner is a powerful scanner that can perform complex corrosion inspections while traversing all magnetic surfaces. Remote operation combined with one of any four lengths of motorized raster arm ensures the SKOOT is the leader of automated two-axis corrosion scans.



Low Profile

The SKOOT requires a radial clearance of 11.4 cm (4.5 in), which allows for inspection in limited-access applications.

Raster Arms

Available in 4 different lengths, the sophisticated raster arm delivers precision corrosion results: program custom scan paths, intervals, speed and more for repeatable and highly configurable readings.

Magnetic Wheels

The SKOOT can operate on vertical, horizontal and inverted surfaces using rare-earth magnetic wheels.

Scan Versatility

The SKOOT can facilitate circumferential scans on pipes as small as 6.4 cm (2.5 in) OD and 68.6 cm (27 in) ID. In addition, flat surface scans and longitudinal scanning on pipes as small as 76.2 cm (30 in) OD are available. 


The optional backpack conveniently carries ultrasonic accessories with the unit.

Handheld Controller

Program raster paths from up to 30 m (100 ft) away using the intuitive handheld remote control. The ergonomic handheld controller programs probe speed, intervals, and much more.

Battery Power

Order the SKOOT with the battery kit and avoid using heavy, cumbersome generators. These rechargeable batteries can power the SKOOT system and accessories for hours at a time.


A 3-year warranty backs all components of the SKOOT system.

Component Identification

Base Crawler

Four highly magnetic wheels propel the SKOOT crawler along ferrous surfaces. Attach many weld and corrosion scanning accessories to the crawler, which features cable management and an integrated encoder.


A flexible strap securely holds any pre-amp, splitters or scan accessories to the SKOOT crawler.

Manipulation Handle

Slight steering adjustments and crawler manipulation are achieved using the manipulation handle.

Power Controller

Configurable for North American or European electrical standards, the power controller is a sophisticated operating platform and connection point for instrumentation and handheld controllers.

Handheld Controller

Precision forward and reverse drive control, programmable y-axis control, and system diagnostics are all accessed using the handheld controller's touchscreen and joysticks.


The backbone of communication between the power controller and the base crawler.
