Corrosion Scanning

Perform precision corrosion scans with ease. Manually operated, this magnetic scanner provides encoded probe positioning on ferrous inspection surfaces.

Scan Control

The carrier, to which the heavy duty probe holder connects, includes a locking handle which aligns the probes scan path. Simply lift the handle and slide the carrier to the next index position (which is configurable depending on the size of the probe used) to align to the next scan path.


High-resolution positional encoding built-in to the corrosion link is compatible with all standard instruments. Track scans along the y-axis at the preset positions of the frame bar.


The magnetic wheels are coated with urethane to reduce the effects of foreign debris obstructing the scanner motion. When required, additional magnetic wheels may be added to the scanner to further increase the magnetic attraction.

Heavy Duty Vertical Probe Holder

Designed to carry large probes, the heavy-duty vertical probe holder is compatible with the Olympus HydroFORM when used in conjunction with the HydroFORM Cart.


Hold the position of the scanner in place when required.

Cable Management

Cable clips allow for routing probe cables and irrigation tubes in an organized, efficient manner on the scanner. the is in addition to the cable management which protects tubes and cables to the instruments.

Three Year Warranty

Manufactured to last. All Jireh equipment comes with a 3-year warranty.

Component Identification

Heavy Duty Vertical Probe Holder

Incredibly adjustable to accommodate infinite scan surfaces, probe and wedge sizes as well as scan directions of travel.


With locking options and cable management, the carrier slides effortlessly along the stroke of the scanner carrying the heavy duty vertical probe holder.

Over-the-top Link

One link contains the positional encoder while the opposite link is unencoded. Together the operate as the backbone of the scanner. Tall enough that the carrier and probe holder can pass through underneath.

Y-Axis Encoder

The y-axis encoder tracks the probe position along the stroke.

Encoder Cable

Compatible with most industry standard instruments, the encoder cable carries the X and Y positional information to the user's equipment.

Magnetic Wheels

Magnetic wheels affix the scanner to ferrous surfaces. Additional wheels may be added to the scanner to increase magnetic attraction.

Scanner Frame

Preset scan positions are built-in to the frame bar which carries the carrier and probe holder along the lenght of the stroke. 

Cable Management

Cable management organizes cables and tubes as well as offers protection. Cable clips and cable management on the carrier further increase the organizational capabilities of the scanner.
