Axial Scanning

A dual pivot frame bar accommodates two probe, longitudinal scans. Perform manual long seam scans on pipes as small as 15.24 cm (6 in).

Circumferential Scanning

Conversion between circumferential and longitudinal capabilities is quick and simple. Scan circumferentially on pipes and tubes as small as 25.4 cm (10 in). Scan circumferentially as small as 10.2 cm (4 in) using slip-joint probe holders (sold separately).

Ease of use

Comfortable handles provide excellent scanner control as well as mounting points for accessories.

Spring-Loaded Encoder

The spring-loaded encoder maintains constant surface contact to ensure accurate scanner positioning.

Phased Array Probe Holders

Numerous setup variations and finely tuned adjustment options are the hallmarks of the vertical probe holders.


Hold the scanner position when required.

Magnetic Wheels

Component Identification

Long Seam Frame

The dual pivot frame bar accommodates longitudinal scanning applications. The synchronized dual pivot frame bar ensures precise scanner setup while complete control is provided with convenient handles.



Spring-Loaded Encoder

A spring-loaded encoder maintains constant surface contact to ensure accurate scanner positioning. The spring-loaded encoder is fully compatible with all standard instruments.

Wheel Blocks

Ergonomic handles provide comfortable scanner control while also providing mounting points for accessories.


Brakes are provided to lock the scanner in the required position.


The magnetic wheels are coated with urethane to reduce the effects of foreign debris obstructing the scanner motion. The system includes two sets of 4 magnetic wheels to provide optimal magnetic attraction during scanning operations.

Vertical Probe Holders

Countless setup variations and adjustment options are the hallmarks of the vertical probe holder. Fine-tune probe and wedge setup with these probe holders also offer transverse scanning.
