Splash Zone Pulsed Eddy Current (PEC) Probe

Current (PEC)
Probe

The splash zone PEC probe is specifically designed to detect corrosion in the area immediately above and below the mean water level in such structures as offshore oil and gas platform legs and risers without any surface preparation or removing marine growth.

The splash zone probe can tackle offshore applications thanks to its rugged design, watertightness to 15 m (49 ft) in grid-mapping mode, and 25 m (82 ft) heavy-duty cable. The probe is flexible enough to support metal thicknesses up to 76 mm (3 in) and insulation or marine growth up to 203 mm (8 in).
