Jireh STIX – 4 Probe Long Seam Scanner

An extremely versatile magnetic scanner which is capable of long seam and weld scanning.

Part # NMBGG009 Categories , Tags , , , ,

The STIX – 4 Probe Long Seam Scanner is an innovative solution for longitudinal weld tracking. This 4 probe magnetic scanner, built around a versatile pivoting frame bar, allows manual axial scanning down to 15.2 cm (6 in).

Axial Scanning

A dual pivot frame bar accommodates two probe longitudinal scans. Perform manual scans on pipes as small as 15.24 cm (6 in).

Circumferential Scanning

Conversion between circumferential and longitudinal capabilities is quick and simple. Scan circumferentially on pipes and tubes as small as 25.4 cm (10 in). Scan circumferentially as small as 10.2 cm (4 in) using slip-joint probe holders (sold separately).

Ease of use

Comfortable handles provide excellent scanner control as well as mounting points for accessories

Spring-Loaded Encoder

The spring-loaded encoder maintains constant surface contact to ensure accurate scanner positioning at all times.

Phased Array and TOFD Probe Holders

Numerous setup variations and finely tuned adjustment options are the hallmarks of the vertical probe holders.


Hold the scanner position when required.

Magnetic Wheels

Translate probes across magnetic material with this manual scanner.
