The Sitescan 150 is a Fully Featured Broadband Ultrasonic Flaw Detector. With a broadband amplifier the Sitescan 150 is enhanced with all the software features required to improve operator efficiency and accuracy. These includes standard sizing tools, advanced measurement modes, full screen waveform display, thickness reading memory and an automatic calibration feature.
Advanced Defect Sizing Tools as Standard
Weld and pipe inspection are major applications for the Sitescan series and they are equipped with the latest software tools for defect sizing.
The use of integrated sizing software reduces analysis time and speeds inspection. Multiple standard sizing techniques are essential for service companies working to different customer standards, especially as service work becomes more international and operators are required to work to different codes.
High Visibility Display
For any flaw detector the display is a crucial element. The Sitescan has a colour transflective TFT display as standard, providing high visibility at any light level. The choice of colours for menus and waveform display enhance clarity, with the LCD simulation mode giving direct sunlight readability. The TFT does not suffer the typical black out problems or temperature limitations of LCD giving full weather capability. The new Full Screen mode maximizes the A-scan area to improve readability further whilst testing and its fast response and peak capture functionality ensure any indication is clearly displayed, even if it only appears for one cycle of the PRF.
High Performance with Total Control
The Sitescan delivers high performance and advanced features, yet our engineer’s experience in user interface design has ensured it is easy and quick to use. Enhanced menu structures and menu navigation keys, provide easy access to functions.
Robust and Reliable
Robust design and proven reliability is an important aspect of flaw detector ownership. Down time is expensive and should be minimized to ensure maximum productivity. The Sitescan series is constructed to high standards using Xenoy plastics and sealed to IP67, giving excellent water resistance so it can withstand the tough environments in which operators work. The Sitescan comes with 2 years warranty, extendable to 5 years with Sonacover, supported by a worldwide service network.
Colour Reference Feature
An A-scan from a known defect free component can be stored and recalled in a different colour to the live A-scan. This effectively means that defects are highlighted in a different colour to the natural reflectors, enabling quicker and more reliable defect detection.
Two independent bar monitor gates offer a range of measurement options for signal height or distance using either flank or peak triggering. The echo-to-echo mode gives through paint thickness readings while the G1-G2 mode allows accurate gate positioning for signals which are extremely close together. The TRIG function gives surface distance and depth when using angle beam transducers.
Curve Surface Correction
When using angle beam transducers on a curved surface the Sitescan will calculate the surface distance and depth of defect, taking into account the internal or external radius.
Automatic flaw sizing using DGS/AVG, AWS D1.1, API 5UE, speeds reporting of defect acceptance or rejection.
Using the HELP key the operator has instant access to the easy to use on screen guidance. Full instructions for all functions are clearly displayed. A very useful function for multi-disciplined technicians who use a variety of NDT techniques and do not use the Sitescan on a day-to-day basis.
Full Screen A-scan
In full screen mode the A-scan fills the display improving visibility.
Fast Set Up Screen
The split screen mode enables fast set up and overview of basic parameters.
