Motorized circumferential and longitudinal weld scanning with up to 6 probes.

 An impressive motorized scanning package for circumferential or axial weld inspection, the SKOOT - Weld Scanner can carry 2 to 6 probes on ferrous materials. Powerful magnetic wheels allow inverted inspection, while the built-in encoder provides positional feedback to a user's instrument. Follow welds easily due to the small form factor of the SKOOT crawler, which is controlled remotely via the rugged handheld controller. The SKOOT is compatible with several types of probe holder frames that cover many different types of inspection applications.



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

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

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.

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.

Handheld Controller

Program single-axis paths from up to 30 m (100 ft) away using the intuitive handheld remote control. The ergonomic handheld controls speed and so 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.


3-year limited warranty on all JIREH products.

Component Identification

Base Crawler

Four highly magnetic wheels propel the SKOOT crawler along ferrous surfaces. Attach many different 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, European or UK 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.
