JIREH SKOOT – Weld Scanner

Motorized circumferential and longitudinal weld scanning with up to 6 probes.

The SKOOT delivers an impressive weld scanning package. A low profile, motorized scan platform for use upon ferrous surfaces, the SKOOT – Weld Scanner is controlled remotely via the handheld controller and combines with several types of probe holder frames to cover a multitude of inspection applications.

Low Profile Design

The SKOOT requires a radial clearance of 11.4 cm (4.5 in), which allows for inspection in limited access applications.

Magnetic Wheels

Using rare-earth magnets, the SKOOT can operate on vertical, horizontal and inverted surfaces.

Scan Versatility

The SKOOT can facilitate circumferential scans on pipes as small as 6.4 cm (2.5 in) OD and 68.6 cm (27 in) ID. In addition, flat surface scans and longitudinal scanning on pipes as small as 76.2 cm (30 in) OD are available.


The optional backpack conveniently carries ultrasonic accessories with the unit.

Up to 6 Probes

Various probe holder frames are available for use with the SKOOT. Carry up to 6 probes during circumferential or longitudinal scanning.


3-year warranty

Handheld Controller

Program single-axis paths from up to 30 m (100 ft) away using the intuitive handheld remote control. The ergonomic handheld controls speed and so much more.

Component Identification


1 Base Crawler

Four highly magnetic wheels propel the SKOOT crawler along ferrous surfaces. Attach a multitude of weld and corrosion scanning accessories to the crawler which features cable management and integrated encoder.

2 Backpack

A flexible strap securely holds any pre-amp, splitters or scan accessories to the SKOOT crawler.

3 Manipulation Handle

Slight steering adjustments and crawler manipulation are achieved using the manipulation handle.

4 Power Controller

Configurable for North American or European electrical standards, the power controller is a sophisticated operating platform and connection point for instrumentation and handheld controllers.

5 Handheld Controller

Precision forward and reverse drive control, programmable y-axis control and system diagnostics are all accessed using handheld controller’s touchscreen and joysticks.

6 Umbilical

The backbone of communication between the power controller and the base crawler.
