Spyne™, an adaptable surface eddy current array (ECA) screening tool, is specifically engineered to maximize productivity for the detection of stress-corrosion cracking (SCC), cracks, subsurface defects, and pitting in various critical components such as high-pressure gas pipes, vessels, tanks, pipelines and more. With a higher PoD than MPI / PT and with its ultrafast capabilities, it paves the way to unprecedented efficiency.
The groundbreaking screening tool makes inspections much faster and more efficient than MT/PT. It can accommodate a range of flexible probes, designed to suit ferritic and non-ferritic alloys, and be configured to inspect external diameters from 150 mm (6 in) to flat surfaces.

Ultrafast – Leave no crack behind
Spyne is capable of a single-pass coverage of 200 mm (8 in) at scan speeds as high as 600 mm/s (24 in/s). The wide coverage not only makes inspections faster than ever, but also minimizes inspection preparation with Grid-As-U-Go™. The wide coverage accessory dramatically reduce gridding times. The powerful automatic detection capabilities of the software also make screening and analysis operations significantly faster. Displaying C-scans has never been this quick, improving the overall productivity of inspections.
