Phased Array Weld Inspection

Magnetic wheels, a spring-loaded encoder, and adjustable slip joint probe holders complete the main components of the STIX - 2 Probe Phased Array Scanner. Add a frame bar, brakes, required tools and a rugged carrying case to complete this extremely functional, yet easy to operate the manual magnetic scanner. Translate two phased array probes around ferrous piping and vessels with minimal adjustment between scan setups.

Part ID: BGG002

Features

Stix Frame

The STIX frame includes convenient handles for scanner handling as well as mounting points for accessories.

Spring-loaded encoder

A spring-loaded encoder ensures accurate scanner positioning. The 5V DC TTL encoder is fully compatible with all standard instruments.

Brakes

Brakes are provided to lock the location of the scanner in a required position.

Magnetic Wheels

The magnetic wheels are coated with urethane to reduce the effects of foreign debris obstructing the rolling of the scanner. To further increase the flexibility of the system, the wheels are also stackable to increase the magnetic attraction when required.

Slip Joint Probe Holders

The extremely adjustable slip joint probe holders accommodate most of phased array wedges.

Warranty

3-year limited warranty on all JIREH products
