  • Flexible heads fit the full range of pipe and vessel sizes
  • High-probability of corrosion detection
  • Detection from Ø >1mm and 20% wall loss
  • In-service inspection at surface temperatures up to 60°C
  • Full data recording with adjustable reporting threshold feature

Details

Swift-M

With a large, 26.4 cm (10.4 in), non-reflective, multi-touch display, Silverwing Swift-M offers crystal-clear views under any lighting condition. The instrument is sealed and designed for IP65. Its magnesium alloy casing is tough, as well as water and dust resistant. Combined with a 3 mm (1/8 in) strengthened glass, Silverwing Swift-M is perfect for harsh environmental conditions. Silverwing Swift-M comes with two lithium-ion, hot-swappable batteries, enabling a full day’s work. An optional harness is also available to support the use of the system for longer periods of time. The adjustable rear stand, the top handle, and the four corner anchor points all make Silverwing Swift-M incredibly practical for on-site inspections.

Pipescan HD

The Pipescan HD is the highest resolution MFL scanner on the market. With a high Probability of Detection (PoD), the Pipescan HD is an effective and reliable pipe inspection solution for corrosion and pitting detection.

Pipescan deployment is easy with the unique single curvature adjustment tool allowing for a quick inspection setup. No couplant or complicated gate settings are required, connect the Pipescan to the data acquisition instrument, enter inspection details, and the system is ready to go.

Why Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL)?

MFL is a rapid, reliable, and robust corrosion screening technique that detects the volume of missing magnetic material in a component under inspection.

MFL requires limited surface preparation and no couplant is needed. Users require minimal training, and with scanning speeds up to 1m/s (3.2 ft/s), MFL is the ideal solution for fast, cost-effective corrosion detection.

Adjustable Reporting Threshold

Keeping with the goal of a fast and easy to use solution, the Swift-M software has retained the adjustable reporting threshold feature, allowing the user to only report on what is relevant to the work scope. Unlike the previous electronics module, the reporting threshold can be adjusted post-inspection due to the data being recorded.

Report as you go

The Swift-M one-click reporting tool is designed to improve the overall workflow from inspection to report. Defects can be analyzed on the go, at the end of a scan or the end of a job. Once the analysis has been completed simply select generate report then transfer to a USB for distribution.
