The FlexoFORM™ scanner solves the challenges of pipe elbow inspection and enables 100% coverage with intuitive C-scan imaging. Incorporating Olympus’ flexible array probe technology, the FlexoFORM scanner solution can map corrosion in pipe elbows from 4.5 in. OD and up. The FlexoFORM scanner features a water column with a foam gasket that contours to the pipe’s inner concave (intrados) and outer convex (extrados) curves, for optimum coupling and a reliable signal.

The flexible array is shaped by the wedge to sit concentric to the elbow’s surface, enabling the use of simple 0-degree focal laws, similar to inspecting a flat surface. The water wedge can be changed in seconds and is the only part that differs from one diameter to the other. The scanner and flexible probes are designed to cover the entire range of diameters, making the FlexoFORM scanner a versatile and cost-effective solution.
