By manually scanning with the sensor of the CrackFinder® X5, it accurately finds cracks on all aluminium and ferromagnetic materials such as steel piping, steel pressure tanks, steel boilers, steel constructions, etc.
This gauge does not only detect cracks in material under inspection in no time at all, but it can also measure and determine the depth of the crack through a 3 - 4 mm thick insulating layer (only for steel)!
Cracks can also be located and traced through a corrosion or paint layer of up to a max. thickness of 10 mm, and the crack does not need to be linked to the surface of the test piece as is required for the dye penetration technique.
The innovative measuring technique employed, is an indispensable aid for preventive maintenance and production processes, enabling the user to pinpoint cracks with ease and speed which in turn saves the user time and great costs from possible accidents occurring. The X5 has a wide range of application in the petro-chemical industry, chemical industry, gas industry, power generation industry, undercarriage industry, for general inspections on heavy machinery, etc.
