Eddyfi launches high-performance probe pusher system


Dedicated to electromagnetic inspection technologies, Eddyfi has announced the launch of the highly-advanced ProbotTM probe pusher system. It is easy to transport and set up, requires no compressed air, has a small footprint and offers the robustness required by the industry. Probot also makes one-person inspection a reality, a revolution in the industry. The probe pusher system is designed to dramatically and safely increase inspection speed, while maintaining high quality.

Furthermore, Probot is designed with versatility in mind and is said to exceed the requirements of balance of plant (BoP) inspections, while offering other markets an extraordinary productivity-enhancing tool. By automating probe motion to inspect heat exchangers, the system yields accurate and reliable data at speeds optimised for the technique.

Joe Renaud, Probot Product Manager, said: “The need for a light and compact probe pusher system that can be operated by a single person was essential to the oil & gas, BoP and tubing inspection industries. This simple-to-use probe pusher always yields accurate and reliable results at speeds optimised for the inspection technique being used. It is a major evolution over existing probe pusher systems on the market that are heavy, bulky and take a lot of time to set up.”

Probot is compatible with industry-standard probes and is fully integrated into Eddyfi’s product line-up. It is designed to enhance the operation of the company’s most innovative tubing probes. Probot is configured and controlled using Magnifi, an advanced multi-technology software for tube inspections. Adding the Ectane test instrument to the mix creates the most powerful heat exchanger inspection system on the market it is claimed.
