The Scorpion B-scan is a rugged remote access ultrasonic (UT) crawler designed for cost effective A and B-scan imaging on above ground ferro-magnetic structures such as storage tanks, vessels and offshore installations without the need for costly scaffolding or rope access associated with UT thickness gauging.
The Scorpion B-scan system continuously records thickness measurements as it moves over the inspection surface. The recorded thickness information is presented in the software as an A-scan trace, a digital thickness measurement and a B-scan profile. Unlike many crawlers, the Scorpion can be bought as a complete system, integrating ultrasonic pulser/receiver, data logging and motion control for easy set up and seamless operation. Scorpion offers considerable cost saving over manual inspection with rope acess or scaffolding, and significantly improves probability of detection.
