In conjunction with the RMS Phased Array solution from Eddyfi Technologies, the R-Scan Array scanner allows for semi-automated Phased-Array (PA) corrosion mapping with onboard data collection capabilities.

The R-Scan array system has been designed to work in conjunction with the cutting-edge M2M Gekko and Mantis phased-array systems. M2M is the first brand to deliver portable phased-array flaw detectors capable of driving matrix arrays and perform TFM in real-time.

Having this unique ability with a manual phased array scanner, allows operators to quickly determine defect type and morphology and also navigate restricted and complex scanning surfaces. Detection capabilities include corrosion, erosion, hydrogen-induced cracking (HIC), and high-temperature hydrogen attack (HTHA) with quantifiable, detailed defect characterization, allowing for complete coverage during complex inspection campaigns.

Phased-Array Corrosion Mapping

The phased-array configuration utilizes the water-column concept that eliminates the need for a wedge, thus providing the benefits of improved signal consistency, accuracy, and limited dead zone. This concept offers enhanced surface conformance and improved coupling.

Real-time TFM

TFM is a powerful technique that focuses at each point of a user-specified zone for accurate defect characterization and high-resolution imaging. Real-time imaging with a speed of up to 30 frames per second can be achieved for the obtention of a clear image and defect contouring. The TFM has a 256 x 256 pixels image resolution (65K points focusing).

RMS Scanning Head

The robust, field-proven RMS robotic scanning head has been successfully deployed on various assets such as storage tanks, pressure vessels, pipelines and other critical structures in harsh environments including oil and gas, offshore, and mining.

Non-Intrusive Inspection (NII)

This unique technology combination allows inspection versatility when performing a non-intrusive inspection of pressure vessels and associated pipework.

To complete a thorough NII inspection, there are requirements to perform numerous advanced Ultrasonic Testing (UT) methods. In addition to corrosion mapping of the shell, the industry recommended practice is to perform Time of Flight Diffraction (ToFD) on welds, manual phased-array for flange face and nozzle welds.

The R-Scan Array is the perfect complementary system when navigated restricted inspection surfaces and complex geometries.
