Bracelet - Bore Pipe Weld Scanner
This manually operated belt scanner is the ultimate scanning aid for phased array inspection of circumferential welds in small bore pipework.
This lightweight and low-profile scanner is extremely easy to set up and use for weld testing on pipe sizes from 0.5" to 4". The Bracelet is compatible with industry standard miniature phased array transducers and is designed to be used in areas of limited access with a scanner height of 13 mm.
The Bracelet is commonly supplied as a single sided configuration making it suitable for pipe-to-fitting inspections as well as straight welds. It is also available in dual sided configuration with bridging plates and two phased array transducers for complete weld inspection in one scan.
The Bracelet scanner has a radial height from the pipe surface of only 13 mm and can be fed around the pipe past neighbouring obstructions to provide 360º inspection when only half the pipe is accessible.
Easy hook and loop strap
The Bracelet scanner is quick and easy to attach the Bracelet to the pipe using a hook and loop strap to secure it in position. Similarily is very easy add or remove links to the belt for resizing the scanner to use on different pipe diameters.
Phased Array or TOFD inspection
The Bracelet scanner has been optimised for testing circumferential welds in small bore pipework with ultrasonic phased array transducers. However, adding the TOFD kit make this solution optimal.
Single or Dual side option
Inspection technique option for one or two sides of the weld.
The rubber coated wheels provide the Bracelet with excellent axial grip to prevent unwanted slipping and provide smooth circumferential movement around pipe.
Built in encoder
The miniature sealed encoder provides a high resolution (36 steps/mm) scan recording with fully compatible with Sonatest instruments.
How to Analyse C-scan Mapping?

What is Linear Scanning?
A high-resolution ultrasonic NDT solution speeding up the quality control process of large surfaces.
Aerospace Structural Control
Improving resistance properties in composite is all about improving stress and strain resistance such as ultimate tensile strength.
Ultrasonic NDT Corrosion Mapping From Phased Array to FMC-TFM
Corrosion inspections are used to evaluate the remaining wall thickness or the presence of mid-wall anomalies in pipeworks, pressure vessels, and other metallic structures. These inspections have always been at the heart of many problematic situations for production, maintenance and integrity considerations because of the safety and cost issues. Such material degradation can cause many problems to the industrial and civil infrastructures.
