Scanning Techniques applied to our NDT Services

The versatile design and technology of the Lixi Profiler allows for readings on areas and environments that other NDT services are unable to acheive. Unlike NDT technology such as radiography or ultrasonic testing, the Profiler allows us to adapt to countless system configurations and accurately read pipe that is insulated, nested or suspended with ease.

The LIXI Profiler responds to everything in the beam – jacketing, insulation, contents, pipe and all components of any material. The two most common types of scans are Axial, parallel to the centerline of the pipe, and Slice, which runs perpendicular to the axis of the pipe.

The operating technician uses these two types of common scans as well as others to quickly locate indications of pipe defects, abnormalities or hidden pipe components.



 

Axial

The Axial Scan is parallel, along the centerline of the pipe.

This video demonstrates examples of different motions a technician may use to obtain readings. This scan is used to collect results (graph) along the pipe.
