Manual Scanners for NDE

ELSCAN™ Pipe and Elbow Scanner

Spot inspections and elbow  and pipe scans are common tasks in these industries. The ELSCAN™ is a lightweight, compact manual scanner which can be a valuable tool in assisting with these types of inspections or developing Ultrasonic Testing (UT).

The AMDATA ELSCAN™ manual scanner is a dual axis scanner designed for semi-automated scans of straight pipe and pipe elbows from 4.0 inches to 42 inch. The scanner employs a multi-element or phased array ultrasonic transducer to collect high resolution thickness measurements on elbow pipe. Adjustable magnets provide active contact to the inspection material. With two encoded axes, the scanner can inspect any portion of a pipe elbow.  The data acquisition system can be set up to scan any portion of or all of a pipe elbow. ( read more )

“Badger” Scanner

The 4050 Manual “Badger” Scanner is a magnetic-wheeled single-axis scanner designed for manual raster-type scans of pipe, flat plate, and convex or concave surfaces.
