The company’s cylinder scanning system uses immersion technology to ultrasonically inspect high-pressure gas cylinders. The system includes a pneumatic tilt table, a recyclable water bath tank, a drive collar for positively clamping the cylinder, an X-Y-Z-H-R scanning bridge to position the ultrasonic scanning sensor along the cylinder wall, and a Windows XP operating system. According to the company, the easy setup and non-contact nature (single transducer design) of the system result in the system’s calibrating quicker and staying in calibration longer. The system reportedly provides a more thorough inspection than hydrotesting and does not require devalving cylinders. Cyl-Tec Inc.
