Phoenix Inspection Systems has welcomed its new time-of-flight diffraction (TOFD) scanner. The Duo scanner is a new, operator-friendly inspection solution that has been designed to incorporate the key 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, lightweight aluminium, the tool combines the benefits of simple, tool-less probe installation and adjustment with a sturdy frame.
Wedges snap in and out of the Duo scanner frame without the need to unscrew parts. Probe separation is quick and simple to adjust with a graduated scale. This allows for accurate positioning while maintaining probe alignment.
With three strong magnetic wheels that provide adhesion and tracking, the scanner also incorporates a brake for hand repositioning, making it 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.”
