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.
Detection of circumferential cracks anywhere in the tube, including tube-sheet and support locations.
Full-length tube inspection with speeds almost equal to the ECT standard speed (1 m/s), replacing rotation pancake probes.
2-D and 3-D C-scan representation for maximum understanding of signals using the MultiView C-scan option.
Solid and durable titanium construction.
No multiplexer required. Direct connection to the standard MS 5800 EC extended connector.
Option to use up to four frequencies with mixing, and all with C-scan displays.
