Standard Pulsed Eddy Current (PEC) Probes

Standard Pulsed Eddy
Current (PEC) Probes

Standard PEC probes are specifically designed to detect corrosion under insulation (CUI), corrosion under fireproofing (CUF), and flow-accelerated corrosion (FAC) in pipes, vessels, sphere legs, and more.

Optimized Performance for Wall Thickness and Liftoff

The Lyft® solution includes three standard probes of various sizes for the right balance between wall thickness and liftoff. The standard probe family offers the flexibility to support metal thicknesses up to 102 mm (3 in), insulation up to 305 mm (12 in) (fiber glass, plastic wrap, concrete, and any non-ferrous material), as well as stainless steel, aluminum, or galvanized steel weather jackets. The probes also offer the capacity to inspect hard-to-reach areas of various geometries. The probes are capable of scanning walls and pipes with diameters as small as 25 mm (1 in). They have a keypad for easy remote operation and can be equipped with a universal clip-on encoder enabling dynamic scans. Accessories include poles (up to 4.6 m/15 ft), extension cables (15 m/50 ft) for rope access, ergonomic clip-on handles and stabilizer, as well as probe shoes for operation on surfaces up to 120°C (248°F) and attenuating vibration from galvanized steel weather jackets.
