Olympus HydroFORM Corrosion Inspection Scanners - NEW

An easy-to-deploy 2-axis encoding phased array (PA) solution, the semiautomated HydroFORM scanner enables fast and reliable wall-thickness mapping and midwall damage detection by acquiring high-resolution data of large surfaces in minimal time.Achieve immersion-tank-quality phased array inspection without concerns about water coupling. The HydroFORM scanner's unique low-flow water-column design with foam gaskets conforms to the surface, eliminating the need for a wedge.

An easy-to-deploy 2-axis encoding phased array (PA) solution, the semiautomated HydroFORM™ scanner enables fast and reliable wall-thickness mapping and midwall damage detection by acquiring high-resolution data of large surfaces in minimal time.

To optimize the productivity of raster scanning, the HydroFORM system is equipped with several efficiency-boosting features:

Integrated X and Y axis encoders
Smart indexing button
Index position and coupling indicators
Scan speed check
Efficient bubble management
Easy-to-index magnetic wheels
Braking system

Easily adapting to curvatures 4 in. OD (101 mm) and greater, this PA solution facilitates a wide range of applications including:

Monitoring wall-thickness reductions due to corrosion, abrasion, and erosion
Detecting midwall damage, such as hydrogen-induced blistering or manufacturing-induced lamination, and differentiating these anomalies from loss of wall thickness

High-Performance Corrosion Mapping for Rough and Uneven Surfaces

Achieve immersion-tank-quality phased array inspection without concerns about water coupling. The HydroFORM scanner's unique low-flow water-column design with foam gaskets conforms to the surface, eliminating the need for a wedge.

Other innovative features of the HydroFORM water-coupling system:

  • Coupling check LED indicates when the water supply is too low
  • Gasket protector to prolong the use-life

ScanDeck™ Module

Integrated Controls and Status Indicators

The ScanDeck module is like your scanning dashboard, situated directly in your eyeline while you operate the HydroFORM scanner.

Using a combined HydroFORM and OmniScan™ X3 series solution, you fully benefit from all the functionalities of the ScanDeck module.

Control button:

  • Start the data acquisition on the OmniScan X3 unit
  • Switch between guided and freehand scanning modes
  • Toggle between index and scan axis scanning

Indicator LEDs:

  • Index position guidance
  • Insufficient coupling warning
  • Alert when maximum scan speed exceeded
  • Active encoder (X or Y)

Complete PA Solution

HydroFORM Scanner and OmniScan™ X3 Series

By combining a water column system with gate synchronization on the interface echo available in the OmniScan X3 software, the HydroFORM provides optimum near-surface resolution, precision measurements, and an enormous improvement in flaw characterization over conventional UT.

  • Easy gate synchronization with the front wall for quick remaining wall assessment
  • Optimized coupling
  • Wedge reflection and frequency filtering is eliminated
  • Provides excellent near-surface resolution
  • Up to 1mm x 1mm resolution
