    The Zetec ElbowFlex Scanner is ideal for fast, handheld ultrasound inspections of pipe elbows. The ElbowFlex is perfect for detecting and measuring different flaw types such as corrosion pitting, mid-wall lamination, and remaining wall thickness.

    Designed for both straight and elbow (bend) applications, a single phased array probe on the ElbowFlex will work with pipes from 4" Nominal Pipe Size (4.5") to flat.  The ElbowFlex offers single-handed button operation, magnetic wheels, an aqualene membrane and provides 100% coverage confidence while saving inspection time and operating costs.

    A single, flexible phased array probe allows easy inspection adaptation to the specimen's dimensions and complete concentric analysis. The C-Scan images are easily encoded and interpreted via Ultravision Touch software, 

    Featuring Zetec's industry-leading phased array technology, the ElbowFlew works in conjunction with all TOPAZ systems, saving data in high resolution.


    Easy-to-Use, Simple to Deploy

    • One flexible phased array probe for the entire pipe range: A single probe easily aligns to the scanned test object's dimensions and stays concentric for the duration of inspection
    • C-Scan imaging: UltraVision Touch software enables straightforward interpretation of encoded data
    • Magnetic wheels: Keeps the scanner in place while providing complete coverage and maintaining scan lines

    Highly Versatile

    • Aqualene membrane: Instead of a traditional water chamber, only a thin film of water on the specimen surface is needed for inspections. Alternately, the scanner can work with standard coupling gel or water/gel couplant mixture.
    • Data is saved at a high resolution, and system is compatible with any TOPAZ family instrument
