Ultimate Magnetic Crawler

The Magg™ 310 is a proven and reliable remote inspection crawler system designed to withstand harsh conditions and industrial environments.

With it’s industry-leading tracks, the Magg can quickly and easily navigate critical restricted access areas, whether the surface is clean or close to unpractical. The unique combination of raw power, agility, and magnetic downforce allows the Magg to accomplish inspections that most wheeled vehicles and crawlers could not.

Rugged Inspection Camera

The fully integrated HD continuous tilt camera allows incredible details and clarity. Whether you're close, far, underwater, or in a dark tank, the image will provide an astounding amount of detail.

The Magg 310 comes with auxiliary lighting, lasers, 10x optical zoom, and much more. From top to bottom, the system has been uniquely optimized to allow a clear image streamed in a matter of milliseconds, allowing real-time decision-making.

Applications

  • Storage tanks
  • Pressure vessels
  • Confined spaces
  • Marine vessels
  • Offshore platforms
  • Large diameter pipelines
  • Water towers
  • Wind turbines

Magg™ 310 R-Scan: A Working Duo That Will Go The Distance

Ultrasonic Testing (UT) and Remote Visual Inspection (RVI)

The R-Scan package allows for the collection of UT wall thickness measurements as well as visual inspection up to a distance of 30m (100ft), making the Magg a unique and versatile inspection solution.

UT thickness measurements are collected every 1mm and displayed to the operator in real-time as a B-scan, A-scan trace, and thickness measurements. Compared to traditional spot readings, the R-Scan delivers a much higher Probability of Detection (PoD) with a reliable, recorded, and auditable data set - all from a safe location.

The Magg can be used as part of a regular maintenance and monitoring operation or to troubleshoot a problem quickly in an emergency.

R-Scan with Dry-Coupled Ultrasonic Probe

Designed to be used in remote locations and harsh petrochemical environments, the R-Scan utilizes a unique dry-coupled ultrasonic wheel probe, eliminating the need for couplant or constant water supply, making it the ideal partner for the Magg.

The probe is a dual crystal 5 MHz ultrasonic transducer with a unique rolling probe face that can measure material thicknesses ranging from 2.5 mm up to 100 mm (0.1 in up to 4 in).

The R-Scan scanning head is fitted with an encoder to provide accurate positional information during an inspection. Magnetic wheels assist when scanning vertically or if inverted by minimizing the possibility of encoder slippage.

Mantis™ Ultrasonic Instrument

Made for the field, the Mantis is one of the most robust and reliable industrial ultrasonic instruments ever produced by Eddyfi Technologies, thanks to careful consideration of the highly durable materials chosen.

The innovation behind the Mantis is continually driven by market applications. This robust tool benefits from advanced algorithms through powerful embedded software.

Mantis not only offers conventional UT but more advanced phased array UT (PAUT), time-of-flight-diffraction (TOFD) and total focusing method (TFM) all through its streamlined user interface, Capture™. With three different models, Mantis addresses both general and advanced applications without compromising productivity.

Magg™ 310 ACFM: Going the Distance for Weld Inspection

Alternating Current Field Measurement (ACFM®) and Remote Visual Inspection

ACFM technology has developed a solid reputation for accurately detecting and sizing surface-breaking cracks through paint and coatings.

ACFM is a rugged, tolerant NDT technique ideal for as-is inspection of coated structures, rough welds, and complex geometries. High Probability of Detection and sizing are possible even in the most challenging conditions. When inspecting for cracks that often develop in high rising structural steels, ACFM is the perfect NDT technique.

The ACFM package allows for surface-breaking crack detection in addition to visual inspection up to a distance of 50m (164ft), making the Magg a unique and versatile inspection solution.

Sensu2 ACFM Probes

Sensu2 ACFM probes can inspect ferromagnetic and austenitic alloys. The Sensu2 range of probes stores configuration information directly on the probe, making setup time quick and easy.

The Sensu2 range of probes comes in several formats, from simple pencil style probes covering up to 15mm (0.6in) to the more advanced compliant array probe covering 90mm (3.5in) in one pass. Underwater probes are also available.

The range of compliant array probes features spring-loaded sensor modules for 12mm (0.47in) travel. This makes the probe ideal for inspecting butt or lap welds with raised profile weld caps. The probe also features a wheeled encoder for position feedback and rapid sizing of defects in any orientation.

Amigo™ 2 ACFM Instrument

The Amigo 2 is engineered around a highly advanced signal acquisition and processing system able to process data significantly faster than any other ACFM instrument.

This results in smoother butterflies, an incredible signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), and higher resolution indications that increase the detectability of small defects and the coating thickness through which you can inspect, all at a fast scan rate.

Amigo 2 is a self-contained unit incorporating electronics, and storage in one rugged enclosure. Experienced ACFM operators will immediately feel at home with familiar Bx/Bz traces and butterfly signal taking center stage while the multi-touch interface offers a highly intuitive access to all software functions.
