SCORPION

 

The Scorpion is a rugged remote access ultrasonic (UT) crawler designed for cost effective ultrasonic inspection on ferro-magnetic structures such as storage tanks, vessels and offshore installations without the need for costly scaffolding or rope access associated with UT thickness gauging.
Scorpion DCP/A – 5 MHz dry coupled wheel probe
Scorpion BP – 5 MHz Irrigated bubbler probe

Both systems can be used with Silverwing’s UT Lite system or most standard ultrasonic flaw detectors. When combined with the UT Lite the Scorpion becomes a complete B-scan ultrasonic crawler system with full data recording. The advantage of the UT Lite is that all B-scan and thickness measurement information is recorded, which can be analysed on or off site. This supports engineers with their Risked based inspection (RBI) programs and aid’s them to make reliable decision on the condition of their assets.

UT Lite
When combined with the UT Lite the Scorpion continuously records thickness measurements as it moves over the inspection surface. The recorded thickness information is presented in the software as an A-scan trace, a digital thickness measurement and a B-scan profile. Unlike many crawlers, the Scorpion can be bought as a complete system, integrating ultrasonic pulser/receiver, data logging and motion control for easy set up and seamless operation. Scorpion offers considerable cost saving over manual inspection with rope access or scaffolding, and significantly improves probability of detection.

Dry Coupled Wheel Probe

5
The Scorpion DCP/A remote access crawlers use a unique “Dry Coupled” ultrasonic wheel probe eliminating the need for traditional couplant. This allows the crawler to travel vertically, horizontally or even inverted whilst still fully functional, and removes the need for constant water supply. The wheel probe performs like a standard twin ultrasonic transducer, and can measure thickness from 2.5 mm to over 100 mm, including through paint. In front of the wheel probe is a neodymium magnet which maintains constant probe pressure whilst travelling on the inspection surface.

Battery operated, encoded crawler with 5 MHz, dry coupled wheel probe. Supplied with a 50 metre umbilical cable for access to the top of the highest storage tanks.

Scorpion BP

7
Battery operated, encoded crawler with irrigated dual 5 MHz bubbler probe fed from a pressurised stainless steel reservoir. Supplied with a 30 metre umbilical cable with water feed allows access to the top of the highest storage tanks.

A nominal thickness line and an adjustable reporting threshold line can be displayed over any of the B-scan views (amplitude, profile and line) to identify reportable defects at a glance and allow rapid evaluation of the complete scan. Data can be stored in pre-defined formats to make grid and tank wall scanning patterns, with direct import into CMAP. All these features are designed to make data analysis and reporting easier for the operator.

All inspection and thickness measurements can be simply exported to a USB for transfer to a PC for further analysis and reporting. The exported data can be viewed in the desktop version of the software or thickness readings can be viewed in Excel. B-scan Inspection data taken from the R-scan or Scorpion can be imported to Silverwing’s CMAP reporting software.
