Precision automated digital radiography inspection made possible.
Every radiography inspection is unique, from the type of detector and source to be used to the size and material of the pipe. The innovative SKOOT • X can meet the needs demanded of any application. The handheld controller allows for remote operation and the programming of specific scan patterns around the sample. Mount your choice of detector and source with the ability to adjust the receiving detector's angle, rotation, height and more to achieve precision results. The powerful SKOOT • X crawler can carry sources up to 29 kg (65 lb), and the built-in encoder tracks the exact position of a scan for repeatable results. Quick-release chain links provide a fantastic method of attaching the SKOOT • X system to ferrous and non-ferrous materials. These same chain links can be sized to fit pipes from 20.3 cm (8 in) to 106.7 cm (42 in). Order the SKOOT • X to match your instruments and discover the ease of automated radiography inspection.
The built-in software allows users to program specific scan patterns around a pipe. Input the pipe diameter and how many photographs to capture, and the software will calculate the intervals necessary. Speed and other variables are also available to customize your inspection as required.
Perform radiography inspection on magnetic and non-magnetic surfaces using the adaptable chain system. The chain links are assembled around the circumference of the pipe, 'clamping' the system to the pipe.
Circumferential operation is possible on pipes as small as 20.3 cm (8 in) and as large as 106.7 cm (42 in) OD. An adjustable buckle permits the user to adjust the chain tension as required.
Manage crawler operations with the rugged handheld controller, featuring joysticks, a large colour touch screen and haptic feedback. Inspectors can control the system remotely from up to 6 ft away Magnets on the rear of the controller to prevent drops
Mount the detector bracket to the crawler for seemingly infinite adaptability to angle the detector as required.
Pair the SKOOT • X with any number of radiographic instruments and manufacturers. Contact us to develop custom brackets to fit your particular detector.
Protective cable management is provided to shield any cables from damage and to keep organized.
The source cart holds the user's source. The mounting plate attaches directly to the source and is removable from the source cart using the quick-release red handle. This allows the SKOOT • X system to set up on a pipe first before lifting a heavy source and attaching it to the quick-release of the source cart. (mounting plate not shown in image)
Designed to be highly adaptable and adjustable, the SKOOT • X may also be ordered with magnetic wheels for carrying a detector around ferrous pipes and surfaces.
Contact our technical sales specialists to order the SKOOT • X with magnetic wheels.
Engineered and designed to perform flawlessly. We back our products for three years.
3 mm Hex Driver
The 3 mm hex driver is suitable for most SKOOT • X adjustments.
Various detector brackets are available and compatible with the detector of your choice. The detector bracket features height, rotation and angle adjustments to capture images as required.
The handheld controller contains the SKOOT • X operating system. Users are able to set scan parameters using the intuitive touchscreen.
The source cart attaches to the chain links of the system and carries the source device.
The backbone of communication between the power controller and the crawler.
Compatible with both North American, European and UK power sources, the power controller utilizes a variety of power sources to provide crawler power.
SKOOT • X Crawler
The powerful crawler moves the system circumferentially around the pipe. The SKOOT • X crawler also includes a convenient handle and the detector bracket mounts on the side of the crawler.
Protect and organize cables with the rugged cable management sleeving.
This cable connects the handheld controller to the power controller.
Quick-release links assemble to create a chain system holding the scanner on the inspection surface.
This link provides an attachment point for accessories such as cable management.
The buckle completes the chain system around a pipe and adjusts the chain tension when required.
