Truflux

High resolution digital tank floor plate scanner

A new chapter in floor-plate inspection

DISEÑO INNOVADOR CON CARACTERÍSTICAS AVANZADAS

The TruFlux FS1 is a new concept in Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL) tank floor plate inspection, incorporating a new level of user sophistication in its innovative design. The FS1 has the benefits of advanced features and practicality. The FS1 is a fully self-propelled high-resolution digital scanner, capable of producing highly accurate topographical images of 6-12mm storage tank floor plates. Particular attention has been paid to the mechanical design of the FS1. Notably in its physical size, the FS1 weighs just 32kg inclusive of its slip-in-slip-out lithium ion battery pack.

FÁCIL DE USAR Y ALTAMENTE PRÁCTICO

Yet with its advanced design, no functionality has been compromised; in fact, significant advancements in floor plate inspection have been incorporated into the FS1 system design. The TruFlux FS1 system is easy to use and highly practical. The FS1 folds down into a locked transport position, with the operation of just one lever. With its reduced physical size and lower weight, handling and set-up require little effort

Características

Datos principales

  • Efficient and Effective Mechanical Design.
  • Superior Resolution (5.2mm x 1mm).
  • Lightweight – 32kg including battery.
  • Easy to Transport – Total shipping weight under 60kg (not including the laptop).
  • Efficient Reporting via the PC Laptop or USB.
  • Unique Damping System Provides Easy Lift-off.
  • High-resolution optical encoder (positional accuracy of ± 1mm over a 20-meter scan track).
  • Fast track-to-track scanning images – All file and directory handling is produced automatically, resulting in significantly faster track-to-track scanning speed.
  • USB Connectivity meaning that the TruFlux effectively works as a simple “plug-and-play” unit.
  • Off the Shelf Battery Technology.

HIGH LEVEL OF POSITIONAL ACCURACY:

The high-resolution optical encoder gives a positional accuracy of ± 1mm over a 20-meter scan track.

DIGITAL RESOLUTION:

Readings from 48 hall affect sensors are captured and digitised every 1.0 mm of forward travel at a scanning speed of 500mm p/sec.

AUTO DRAWING, SCALING AND FILE HANDLING:

The Software produces a full-scale drawing of the tank floor, with auto numbering of plates and tracks including annular rings. Scanned plots of tracks are auto-positioned onto plates; as are the plates into the tank image. All file and directory handling is produced automatically, resulting in significantly faster track-to-track scanning speed. Unrivalled data image display reveals any material loss as a high-resolution corrosion map with additional controls for zooming, panning and saving images.

TRUFLUX SF-1

A NEW CHAPTER IN FLOOR-PLATE INSPECTION

Algorithms developed to filter flux leakage distortion, provide the operator and client a greater understanding of the visual data displays. Point-to-point data samples from 48 channels are stored in each track run and can be cross-correlated with subsequent inspections for predictive corrosion growth analysis. Baugh & Weedon’s Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL) floor-plate scanner introduces a new dynamic to tank floor inspection. The TruFlux high-resolution scanning system offers an unparalleled level of inspection.

Threshold sensitivity can be adjusted to client requirements along with colour choice, so if required, any indication over a set percentage loss can be set to a single colour. Once operator inputs have been selected an automatic plate scan strategy is generated. The operator has then only to follow the on-screen guidance. The operator can additionally choose to select end zone scanning. The DAQ software has a Preliminary PDF report output function, enabling the on-site operator to leave a first draft report upon inspection completion. This enables the client to be immediately reactive to possible issues.

OVERLAY FEATURE AND DESIGN FEATURE

Past inspection results can be overlaid in both tank, plate and track format. Providing the engineer an indication of corrosion growth/ trends and help with predictive analysis. The TruFlux uses Lithium-ion battery technology with push-pull hot swappable ability. A fast recharge function and four batteries per
unit provides 24hr utilisation.
