Scanner for Phased Array inspection

PALM flat

Inspection Robotics’ Palm flat answers today’s challenges to successfully and reliably perform weld inspections on large diameter pipes or plates. Ultrasonic Phased Array technology provides several benefits in terms of safety, productivity and inspection quality.

The PALM Flat is a compact, lightweight and robust tool that uses ultrasonic phased array technology to inspect the weld integrity of large diameter pipes up to flat surfaces.

fast & easy setup

The set up time for an inspection is less than one minute. The PALM flat comes in one piece, ready for inspection. Scanner assembly and adaptation to a specific diameter is not required.

Safety

New or repaired welds are usually inspected by radiography (RT). The technology requires the evacuation of the workers on site, as well as considerable time for developing the RT films.

High Productivity

Inspecting welds by Phased Array means immediate results for the operator. Welder & inspector work back to back during the job. Repair or exchange decisions can be made on the spot.

PALM flat

large diameter pipes and plates

The PALM Flat Scanner circumferentially inspects pipes of diameters from 90 mm (3.5”) outer diameter to flat and inner diameters down to 250 mm (10”). The minimum diameter of axial scanning is 200 mm. The tools can carry probes upto the size of 70 mm (length) x 50 mm (width) to suit any inspection procedure regardless of tube thickness, material or acceptance criteria.

PALM flat DS

double sided weld inspection

PALM scanners offer unparalleled ease-of-use experience with superb mechanical design and quality. The ultrasonic PA probes and wedges crafted specifically for this application ensure the outstanding inspection quality. The PALM DS extension allows weld inspection from both sides simultaneously.

Probes & Accessories
