SIMS

Silverwing Inspection Mapping Software

Silverwing Inspection Mapping Software (SIMS) reporting suite provides the most powerful and efficient means to create high quality reports on tank condition, and archiving of inspection results for traceability.

Floormap3D

Tank floor mapping TOP and BOTTOM surface defects discrimination

Silverwing’s Floormap3D with STARS technology is the highest performance Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL) storage tank floor inspection system on the market today. Building on the best selling FloormapVS2i, Silverwing has developed surface topology measurement of tank floors using air-gap reluctance sensors (STARS) to provide discrimination between top and bottom surface corrosion defects, enabling tank engineers to determine the optimum repair strategy.

FloormapVS2i

Corrosion Mapping and Corrosion Detection MFL Floor Scanner

The FloormapVS2i is a computerised MFL inspection system designed to detect, size and map corrosion on storage tank floors and is currently the most widely operated MFL tank inspection system in the world. The battery powered, motorised FloormapVS2i scanner is complimented by powerful, yet easy to use dedicated software packages that work seamlessly to enhance efficiency and simplify the data collection and reporting workflow.

MFL2000

Corrosion Screening MFL Floor Scanner

The MFL 2000 is a high speed, motorised magnetic flux leakage corrosion detection floor scanner capable of inspecting approximately 8000 square feet per shift. The ergonomic design coupled with the latest magnetic technology have resulted in an easy to operate, accurate, reliable and cost effective inspection tool.

Handscan

Mini MFL Floor Scanner

The Handscan MFL corrosion detection mini floor scanner is designed to compliment the Floormap3D, FloormapVS2i and MFL2000 floorscanners. Even in such a small configuration the latest generation of permanent magnets enable localized magnetic saturation of the floor area under test.

Pipescan

MFL Pipe Screening System

Pipescan is an easy to use, cost effective, portable, magnetic flux leakage inspection system for the detection of random internal corrosion pipe runs. The latest magnetic material coupled with unique mechanical designs enables coverage of all pipe diameters from 48mm to 2.4 metres with a limited number of scanning heads. Magnetic flux leakage inspection is not affected by product flowing through the pipe so surveys can be carried out both on-line and off-line.

RMS2

Remote Access C-Scan Corrosion Mapping

The RMS2 is a high speed, high accuracy remote access ultrasonic corrosion mapping system designed to evaluate the condition of ferrous structures such as storage tanks, pipelines, pressure vessels and other critical equipment, supporting effective and safe operation.

Scorpion

Remote Access Ultrasonic Crawler

The Scorpion B-scan is a rugged remote access ultrasonic crawler designed for cost effective A and B-scan imaging on above ground ferro-magnetic structures such as storage tanks, vessels and offshore installations without the need for costly scaffolding or rope access associated with UT thickness gauging.

UT-Lite

Corrosion Profiling, Corrosion Mapping and Weld Flaw Detection

The Silverwing UT Lite family consists of a R-Scan Lite, ThetaScan and Tofd manual scanners, an ultrasonic pulser/receiver and dedicated acquisition and analysis software. This combination provides the capability to perform corrosion profiling, corrosion mapping and weld flaw detection.

T-Scan

Ultrasonic Thickness Gauges

The Silverwing T-Scan is a precision Ultrasonic Micrometer that can be used to make reliable measurements or scan a length of material for the thinnest point. Based on the same operating principles as SONAR, the T-Scan is capable of measuring the thickness of various materials with accuracy as high as ± 0.001 inches, or ± 0.01 millimetres.

D-Scan

Digital ultrasonic flaw detectors

The D-SCAN 701 and 705 units are high performance digital ultrasonic flaw detectors from Silverwing UK. The latest developments in amplifier and pulser technology deliver higher levels of near surface resolution, penetrating power and excellent signal to noise ratio.

V750

Flat Vacuum box Designed to meet API 653 inspection standard

The latest edition to the vacuum box range is the V750. The V750 has been completely redesigned to API 653 inspection standard. The design incorporates a 750 mm weld inspection length, complete new lighter body, calibrated vacuum gauge, internal LED’s to ensure correct visibility along the test weld, new seal designed to reduces operator fatigue.

V600

Flat Vacuum box with 600 mm inspection length

Bubble leak testing of lap weld, suitable for both new build inspection and inservice inspection. Unlike some vacuum boxes that rely upon a vulnerable vacuum gauge the Silverwing range have calibrated vacuum relief valves fitted as standard.

V400

Shell to annualar weld with 400 mm inspection length

Bubble leak testing of shell to annular weld, suitable for both new build inspection and inservice inspection. Unlike some vacuum boxes that rely upon a vulnerable vacuum gauge the Silverwing range have calibrated vacuum relief valves fitted as standard.

SIMS

Silverwing Inspection Mapping Software associated with Floormap's

Silverwing Inspection Mapping Software (SIMS) reporting suite provides the most powerful and efficient means to create high quality reports on tank condition, and archiving of inspection results for traceability. SIMS imports data from the Floormap3D or VS2i and automatically positions each of the separate plate files together to produce a CAD drawing

RMS Data Acquisition

Corrosion Mapping Data Capture & Reporting

The RMS software integrates scanner control, data capture, data analysis and reporting tools. The software shows a real-time display of the ultrasonic A-scan, C-scan, thickness measurement and positional data, with a maximum resolution of 0.5 mm x 0.5 mm.

Ultrasonic Flaw Detection for Technicians

3rd Edition by J.C.Drury

Ultrasonic Flaw Detection for Technicians by John Drury has almost become an industry standard amongst UT professionals and is widely regarded as the most complete UT book ever written. Now in its third edition, the book was first published twenty five years ago. This thorough revision covers all the latest transducer technology and flaw detection instrumentation advancements and UT developments such as ToFD.
