Universal Modular Scanner (UMS)

Description: Universal Modular Scanner (UMS) is designed and manufactured in Singapore by people who know the requirements of PAUT & TOFD inspection. UMS is a result of continuous collaboration and observation between hands-on operators, advanced NDT engineers, designer’s and fabricator. Rest assured, UMS delivers the best results

Applications: Universal Modular Scanner (UMS) has versatile functions. It allows user to fix probes, encoders, band and castor wheels according to availability of space, which is why we call UMS.

  • Pipe Girth Welds
  • Structural Welds
  • Storage Tanks Welds
  • Pressure Vessel Welds
Features of our UMS scanner
  • UMS scanner can be used from OD 1 inch to any maximum diameter.
  • Scanning at fixed offset with no room for deviation throughout the circumference. (Scanner runs on band which is fixed)
  • Probe pressure is even at all clock positions. This is same when used with 2 or 4 PA probes.
  • Four probes either PAUT or TOFD or combination of both. Option to extend for 2 more probes is possible.
  • Bands consist of magnet (some) with enough strength to hold and provide fixed offset scanning even in pressure vessel, storage tanks and any other flat surface.
  • UMS can be used to inspection both circumferential and longitudinal welds in both pipes, pressure vessels & storage tanks.
  • UMS can be used for horizontal and vertical positions with same sensitivity.
  • UMS can be used for internal scanning (ID scanning) of girth welds.
  • UMS can be used on all materials. However for non-magnetic materials scanning is restricted with fixed band options for pipe girth welds only.
  • UMS comes with option of semi automatic (moving scanner head with hand) & automatic (scanner rotated by motorized controls)
