The SKOOT delivers an impressive weld scanning package. A low profile, motorized scan platform for use upon ferrous surfaces, the SKOOT - Weld Scanner is controlled remotely via the handheld controller and combines with several types of probe holder frames to cover a multitude of inspection applications.

Features

Low Profile Design

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

Magnetic Wheels

Using rare-earth magnets, the SKOOT can operate on vertical, horizontal and inverted surfaces.

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. 

Backpack

The optional backpack conveniently carries ultrasonic accessories with the unit.

Up to 6 Probes

Various probe holder frames are available for use with the SKOOT. Carry up to 6 probes during circumferential or longitudinal scanning.

Warranty

3-year warranty

Component Identification
