Superheater, Reheater and Economizer Scanning
TesTex scans superheater and reheater bends. Data is collected on the entire bend -- from the straight section around the bend to the other vertical straight section of a pendant tube
TesTex scans superheater and reheater bends. Data is collected on the entire bend -- from the straight section around the bend to the other vertical straight section of a pendant tube.

The bend scanner collects data continuously from one side of a pendant tube to other. The scanner is motorized with magnetic wheels for constant speed data acquisition. Data is collected in both forward and backward motions. It provides the same high-resolution, 3-D color display as the TS 2000 straight tube scanner. The bend scanner is a fast, accurate and cost effective method for superheater/reheater scanning.

Now available, our newest scanner is designed to fit between tubes with only a 0.5" (12.7mm) space available. The reheater scanner stands off the tube only 0.480 "(12.2mm).
