The AccuTrak is the first ever “truly modular” scanner which offers both 3 or 2 axis versions and has the ability to scan just about any contoured ferrous surface. AUT Solutions was the first in the industry to design and manufacture modular style scanners to make repairs and modifications in the field easy and low cost to the customer. The AccuTrak is our latest scanner from this design concept that adds more flexibility than standard fixed wheels scanners as this scanner is steerable using a small hand held joystick or even your computer mouse.
The AccuTrak truck assemblies rotate in multi-axis’ to allow near perfect wheel contact to a flat or curved surface using its two powerful X-axis drive motors and magnetic wheels to help propel the scanner and umbilical vertically with little load, even when crossing over weld seam. The truck assembly can be locked into place for conventional 2-axis style scanning or can be unlocked to allow the scanner to become steerable on curved surfaces which is well suited for remote access corrosion mapping or weld inspection utilizing pulse echo, phased array or TOFD technologies. The AccuTrak comes standard as a 3 axis scanner, but the 3-axis arm can be removed to perform simple line or weld scans. The AccuTrak scanning system can be provided with many options, such as multi-probe weld inspection, a battery powered green laser line for weld tracking which can be visible in almost any light condition, and also a camera for weld tracking purposes. The AccuTrak is also capable of performing automated weld tracking utilizing a patent pending technology by AUT
Solutions to automatically track the scanner to the center line of a weld thus the use of heavy and awkward tracks are a thing of the past.
The NanoScan is the first multi-functional manual hand scanner designed for advanced ultrasonic techniques such as single or dual probe Phased Array, TOFD, B and C-scan and Short Range Guided Wave (SRGW). It is a very small, low profile and lightweight encoded scanner with magnetic wheels which is sold in 4 different kit configurations that will allow you to perform single or dual probe setups and also nozzle inspection. The nozzle attachment also enables you to perform SRGW scans on a storage tank’s annular ring from the
outside at the chime area. The NanoScan works well for circumferential and axial scanning and is designed to hold many types of conventional and advanced probes & wedges. The probe forks are adjustable and come standard with 5mm and 8mm Olympus style probe holders plus cone set screws for indented probe.
The Jireh Tripod TR20 Crawler is a remote operated vehicle. It may be used to translate instruments or inspection devices along magnetic material surfaces. Using three rare-earth magnets the crawler can climb vertical, horizontal, and inverted surfaces. The three wheeled compterized drive system, allows Tripod to rotate 360° on it's own axis with virtually no wheel skidding. Utilizing a unique linkage the Tripod's magnetic drive wheels automatically remain perpendicular to the pipe surface when driving in both the longitudinal and circumferential directions of a tank or pipe. With this linkage system the Tripod can navigate on convex surfaces from 24' O.D. to concave surfaces of 72' I.D. This enables the Tripod to be used for many different applications.
The ChainSCANNER XY38 provides a manual pipe-inspection solution for pipes ranging from 45 mm to 965 mm OD (1.75 to 38 in. OD). The scanner, held by chain links instead of magnetic wheels, is well suited for weld or corrosion inspection on various material types, using UT, TOFD, and PA technologies.
The ChainSCANNER XY38 facilitates the manual inspection of pipes with outside diameters of 45 mm to 965 mm (1.75 in. to 38 in.), offering the possibility for two-axis encoding. The scanner, which is held by chain links instead of magnetic wheels, is able to inspect ferromagnetic or nonferromagnetic surfaces. The chain links also help ensure a straight displacement of the scanner by eliminating steering problems. Finally, it is useful when the area around the pipe is difficult to access as the scanner can be rotated around the pipe using the chain links.
