Spyne Array Probe

Speed. PoD. Efficiency.

Spyne™, an adaptable surface Eddy Current Array (ECA) screening tool, is specifically engineered to maximize productivity for the detection of Stress-Corrosion Cracking (SCC), cracks, subsurface defects, and pitting in various critical components such as high-pressure gas pipes, vessels, tanks, pipelines and more. With a higher PoD than MPI/PT and with its ultrafast capabilities, it paves the way to unprecedented efficiency.

Features

  • Scan speed up to 600 mm/s (24 in/s)
  • 200 mm (8 in) coverage in a single pass
  • Infinite adjustments, from 150 mm (6 in) OD pipes to flat surfaces
  • Grid-As-U-Go™ for quick and easy gridding
  • Embedded and detachable spring-loaded encoder
  • Ergonomic handles with acquisition control buttons
  • Spring-loaded, interchangeable flexible ECA probe
  • Compatible with Reddy® 128 or Ectane®
  • Use on high-temperature surfaces (up to 150ºC/302ºF)

Details

The groundbreaking screening tool makes inspections much faster and more efficient than MT/PT. It can accommodate a range of flexible probes, designed to suit ferritic and non-ferritic alloys, and be configured to inspect external diameters from 150 mm (6 in) to flat surfaces.

Ultrafast—Leave No Crack Behind

Spyne is capable of a single-pass coverage of 200 mm (8 in) at scan speeds as high as 600 mm/s (24 in/s). The wide coverage not only makes inspections faster than ever, but also minimizes inspection preparation with Grid-As-U-Go. The wide coverage accessory dramatically reduce gridding times. The powerful automatic detection capabilities of the software also make screening and analysis operations significantly faster. Displaying C-scans has never been this quick, improving the overall productivity of inspections.
