High Temperature Weld Inspection Fiberscope

InterTest SKU: custom_18

02/2014

A pipe welding client required a high temperature fiberscope for inspecting longitudinal welds in small diameter (1/4 and 5/8 of an inch) tubing in-process while withstanding temperatures of up to 1000-degrees Fahrenheit. The fiberscope is bundled into a special heat resistant outer sheathing that allows a continuous flow of Argon to be passed around the probe.

Challenge

A pipe welding client required a high temperature fiberscope for inspecting longitudinal welds in small diameter (1/4 and 5/8 of an inch) tubing in-process while withstanding temperatures of up to 1000-degrees Fahrenheit. The fiberscope is bundled into a special heat resistant outer sheathing that allows a continuous flow of Argon to be passed around the probe.

Solution

The High Temperature Weld Inspection Fiberscope was designed to inspect longitudinal welds in small diameter tubing in-process while withstanding the intense heat. The fiberscope was bundled into a special heat resistant outer sheathing that allows a continuous flow of Argon to be passed around the probe. This design is capable of withstanding temperatures of up to 1000-degrees Fahrenheit. With diameters at 1/4 and 5/8 of an inch, the probe could reach up to 25-feet allowing you to attach them to the weld bar for ID's as small as 2-inch tubing. The fiberscope attached to a camera outside of the weld environment which carried the image back to an LCD screen at the user control panel. 

 

Results

The high temperature weld inspection fiberscope allowed the client to monitor the weld condition just behind the torch head enabling them to stop the weld almost immediately when a problem would arise ultimately saving thousands of dollars in expensive material.
