These probes are used to inspect steam generator tubes on nuclear submarines. They are equipped with a flexible linkage that allows them to pass through small-radius U-bends.
Our phase array surface sensors feature a blue anodized aluminium body incorporating a 16x1 multiplexer and switch (to toggle between HW-null, delete, pause and balance functions). A flexible pad lets users inspect parts that contain deformations (e.g. welds). A protective strip can be applied before inspecting parts with highly abrasive surfaces.
These probes feature a quick-connector, a lightweight plastic body and a reinforced measurement head operating in differential mode. Our probes attach quickly and easily to our driver gun, with extensions available in various lengths to suit your application.
Our SRD probes are equipped with FISCHER 4-pin quick connectors, and operate using the differential reflection principle. Rigid and flexible versions are available, with a stainless steel or PEEK plastic measuring head. Expanding, variable and spherical measuring heads can also be supplied, to suit the customer's requirements.
These probes move through tubes in a spiral motion, facilitating the detection and sizing of longitudinal or circumferential defects.
Diameter range: Ø3mm (H7) and up. Holes may also be machined straight, milled at 100°, or with a spherical mouth. Artificial defects: Rectangular notch, quadrant notch, vee-notch
Our extensions are designed to be rapidly inserted between the gun and probe for inspecting threaded fittings.
Our tap and thread probe driver gun features a fully-integrated power and control system to facilitate the inspection of nuts and screws.
The E-Spin features a quick-connect coupling compatible with all rotating probes. It facilitates the inspection of all types of drilled hole. The blue anodized aluminium casing is fitted with a rotation control switch (with status light), an instrument extension connector, and a fault indicator.
Our guide hoses ensure that probes move smoothly between the probe driver and the inspected tube. Manufactured using tough, lightweight materials, they are designed to withstand pressures of up to 3 bars. Available in several lengths: 400mm, 800mm and 1200mm as standard.
These high-torque motorised sheaths spin rotating probes at speeds of up to 12 revolutions per second. We can supply either DC motors or brushless motors for additional torque.
