Circumferential & Longitudinal Weld Scanner
The highly versatile MagMan now features fourth generation upgrades to make this manual weld inspection scanner even easier to use in the field.
MagMan can hold twelve probes, so is ideal for inspections requiring a combination of phased array and one or more TOFD pairs or multiple UT probes and can be configured to inspect pipe welds from 2” OD circumferential and 9” OD longitudinal up to flat on ferromagnetic material.
MagMan updates include; Three new increment rails for more accurate PCS measurements, A waterproof spring-loaded wheel encoder and Quick release toolpost and wheel adjustments and quick release wedge changes, reducing the reliance on tools.
Compact yet robust, MagMan also benefits from large magnetic wheels providing a stable platform and a smooth rolling motion. The frame includes angular adjustment to enable the scanner to be used on small diameter pipes.
Up to twelve transducers, arranged as six pairs on either side of the weld are mounted on to spring-loaded toolposts that push them onto the inspection surface with a constant force providing a stable positioning system. The toolposts incorporate gimbals in two directions to ensure the transducers stay in constant contact and accommodate surface variations.
MagMan can operate with any multi-channel flaw detection system and optional accessories include, a guide chain to maintain scanner alignment and direction or a laser guide for the operator to track a weld line by eye.
