Pipe & Pipe Elbow Weld Scanner


The MultiMag is a highly versatile manual weld inspection scanner for use on pipes from 3″ OD up to flat plate.


MultiMag is ideal for phased array, TOFD and pulse-echo techniques and can be configured for pipe-to-pipe or pipe-to-elbow circumferential weld inspection, as well as single-sided inspections of pipe-to-fitting welds. The frame includes angular adjustment to enable the scanner to be used on small diameter pipes.



With large magnetic wheels that provide a stable platform MultiMag has a smooth rolling motion. The wheels can be positioned anywhere along the scanning frame to give the flexibility to configure the scanner to suit the inspection geometry.


MultiMag can hold up to four transducers arranged as two pairs on either side of the weld. The transducers are mounted to spring loaded toolposts that push the transducers onto the inspection surface with a constant force providing a stable positioning system. Transducers can easily be re-positioned, relative to the weld, and fixed in place with a thumb screw. The tool-posts incorporate gimbals in two directions to ensure the transducers stay in contact and accommodate surface variations. Low-profile tool-posts are also available when surface clearance is restricted.


Compatible with any multi-channel flaw detection system, MultiMag includes a spring-loaded waterproof wheel encoder that is wired to suit any manufacturers instrumentation.


Optional accessories include a guide chain to maintain scanner alignment and direction or a laser guide to track a weld line by eye.
