At 2.5 pounds, the ElbowFlex scanner from Zetec Inc. (Snoqualmie, WA) is a lightweight manual inspection tool.

The unit measures wall thickness and detects flow-accelerated corrosion on pipe elbows with diameters ranging from 4 inches NPS (4.5 inches) to flat, so it’s able to scan both the straight and elbow aspects of a pipe. 1D flexible linear array probe adapts to the scanned dimension and stays concentric throughout the inspection to cover the full range of diameters in one probe.

ElbowFlex uses an Aqualene membrane for coupling in lieu of a water chamber and requires only a thin film of water on the specimen surface. The scanner also works with standard coupling gel or a mixture of water and gel.

Simple button operation and magnetic wheels help the operator keep the scanner in place while following scan lines for complete coverage.

The ElbowFlex kit includes scanner, flexible probe, Aqualene membrane, encoder cable, wear shoes, shims, tools, carrying case and spare components for consumables.

Zetec is a subsidiary of Roper Technologies Inc.
