In-Service Flange Inspection

The STIX - Flange Scanner is used for a variety of flange coupling inspection applications such as flange face corrosion. Carry one or two phased array probes straight around the flange with the included guiding system while outputting encoded positional feedback to any UT instrument. Magnetic wheels adhere to ferrous surfaces and the articulating frame design allows placement on diameters as small as 7.6 cm (3 in).

Part ID: DXG001

Features

Brake

Lock the position of the scanner in place by activating the brakes.

Flange Scanner Guides

Maintain a straight scan path around the flange utilizing the adjustable guides included with the scanner.

Handle

A safe contact point for the user to control the scanner.

Spring-Loaded Encoder

The spring-loaded encoder maintains constant encoder wheel contact with the scan surface for precise tracking.

Diameter Indicator

Configure the scanner to various diameters using the indicator.

Magnetic Wheels

Dual magnetic wheels keep the scanner mounted to the scan surface even upside down.

Component Identification

Handles

Position the dovetail handles along the frame bar for optimal control.

Spring-Loaded Encoder

The spring-loaded encoder is fully compatible with all standard instruments.

Magnetic Wheels

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

Spring-Loaded Probe Holders

Simplified probe holder carries probe/wedges with ease.

Articulating Frame

The design of the frame allows scanning flanges as small as 7.6 cm (3 in).

Flange Scanner Guides

The guides ensure the scanner travels straight around the flange.
