Falcon Mark II Scanner
Falcon Mark II

Falcon Mark II

Tank Floor Inspection System

  • Uses the principles of Low Frequency Electromagnetic Technique (LFET) for inspection of tank floors, shells and plates
  • Scans ferrous materials such as carbon steel, cast iron and aluminum
  • Utilizes up to 64 channels with low signal-to-noise ratio
  • Can detect flaws on both top-side and bottom-side surfaces in a single scan; including pitting, corrosion, gradual wall loss, and through-holes
  • Modular build can be easily packed for transport and tank entry through standard size man way
  • Capable of using AC or DC power
  • The system can display scan results in high resolution, real time, 3-D, color graphics
  • Results can be saved for further analysis or permanent archiving

Falcon Hand Scanners

  • Extend coverage over scanned area and minimize dead space zones
  • Handheld scanners have a built in multiplexer for direct connection to Mark II electronics allowing scans of hard to reach areas without extra equipment
  • Handheld scanners can be used to inspect large diameter contours such as shells and pipes

Advantage of LFET Over Competing Technologies

  • Lightweight due to permanent magnets not being used
  • Requires minimal surface preparation to be effective
  • Can scan through surface coatings, paint and rust
  • Determines top and bottom surface flaws
  • Will show flaw responses even when scanner is stopped
  • Scanning speed of 10 -15 linear ft/min

Limitations of Competing Technologies

Ultrasound (UT)

    • For ultrasound, surfaces need to be either sandblasted or spot-prepared for individual discreet UT thickness readings
    • Does not provide rapid scanning coverage; UT merely involves spot checks

Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL)

  • For Magnetic Flux Leakage method, surfaces need to be sandblasted
  • Uses permanent magnets, adding unnecessary weight
  • Cannot determine whether flaw is on the top or bottom surface of tank plate
  • Cannot test through surface coating
