Phoenix Inspection Systems offers new pipeline inspection solution

Designed to incorporate the most popular features of existing Phoenix TOFD scanners, Duo offers fast setup and reliable, repeatable inspections of pipe welds, from 2 in. up to flat plate, in a robust, site-ready scanning frame.

Constructed from durable, light-weight aluminium, Duo combines the benefits of simple, tool-less probe installation and adjustment with a sturdy frame complete with handles, which ensure ease of operation and movement around pipes.

Wedges snap in and out of the Duo scanner frame without the need to unscrew any parts. Probe separation is quick and simple to adjust with a graduated scale, which allows accurate positioning whilst maintaining probe alignment. Equipped with three strong magnetic wheels that provide adhesion and tracking, the scanner also incorporates a brake for hand repositioning, so is ideal for rope access inspections.

Andrew Brewis, Sales Manager at Phoenix Inspection Systems, said: “The Duo scanner has already produced very positive results amongst pilot customers. It neatly combines the benefits of our existing TOFD product range into a solid construction that is suited to all onsite conditions.”

The budget-friendly Duo scanner is also available without wheels for a low-cost, hand-held scanning solution.
