The new TXE probe series is the best at detecting circumferential cracks, particularly those located at the edge of supports or tube sheets. The output display is an intuitive C-scan image, and in addition, the probe can be used to scan the whole length of the tube at very high speeds.
TXE probes are designed to be used for the detection of circumferential cracks in stainless steel tubing.
