Automated Ultrasonic (UT)
Vessel Corrosion Mapping
Crawler on vessel
(left) and tank floor (right).
UT scanners (crawlers) are used to rapidly inspect the thickness
of large metallic structures at small measurement intervals, providing
a high-detail thickness map of the scanned surface.
This portable TurnKey, automated Non-Destructive inspection system
is a fully integrated solution for high-speed scanning (scan velocities
over 0.5m/sec) and ultrasonic (UT) inspection requirements of large
steel structures (vessels, towers, tanks, tank
The system is configured to perform wall thickness inspection in order
to detect erosion and/or corrosion, but can be easily modified (by
adding optional angle beam transducer adapters and multi-channel C-Scan)

The thickness measurement software module exports detailed inspection
data directly to commercial spreadsheets (MS ExcelŽ included) for
analysis, graphics and custom reports. API-653 compliant data reporting
templates are also included.
The TurnKey configuration includes all components needed for on-site
inspection and reporting, including host PC, all ultrasonic hardware
and software, the fully automated RS-3b scanner (with manual joystick
capability) and portable color printer.
