More Confident Scanning

NDT PaintBrush by Zetec. An evolution in the field of inspection solutions for the detection of wall-thickness reductions due to corrosion, abrasion or erosion.

Zetec has set a new market benchmark for corrosion mapping with NDT PaintBrush, an extremely agile scanner that can operate on both flat and curved surfaces, providing the confidence of 100% area coverage. Its two encoded wheels that track the position of the scanner in real time allow the operator to visually identify areas that have not been covered. Coupled with the industry-leading TOPAZ ultrasonic instrument family and UltraVision software, NDT PaintBrush is the best solution available for corrosion and wall-thickness mapping.

A strength of NDT PaintBrush is its agility. The scanner is designed with magnetic wheels that stick to a metallic surface for easier use. For non-metallic surfaces, the wheels can be detached and replaced with composite dedicated wheels. The product’s intuitive operation makes corrosion mapping simple and quick.

Why PaintBrush?

Agile on plates

Real-time onboard TOPAZ data position calculation allows moving freely on any 2D surface without any external mechanical constraint. Thanks to its magnetic, side-by-side wheels, NDT PaintBrush solution is a stable instrument that will stick firmly and that easily adapts to any magnetic surface. When using composite dedicated wheels, NDT PaintBrush becomes the ideal solution for the inspection of non-magnetic surfaces.

Agile on pipes

NDT PaintBrush’s size and ergonomics make it the perfect pipe inspection tool. The device can inspect on curved surfaces and on pipes having a diameter as small as 4 inches. UltraVision™ analysis tools complete the solution allowing for data analysis and evaluation either online during inspection or as post-processing data analysis.

See the location, see the orientation

Seeing the location of the probe and data in real time during inspection ensures that the inspection process is performed well covering all the target area. Seeing the indications in real time allows you to properly assess the inspection process.

Imaging of scanned area

The device makes it easy to monitor the state and evolution of the inspected part. Get imaging of scanned area as well as its stitching capabilities.

Export to excel

Easy exporting to Excel equals gain in productivity. You can export data to CSV files for extended compatibility with external software.

Optimum POD: Find corrosion pittings

Detects small wall-thickness losses comparable to 1.6 mm (0.06 in.) round bottom holes with coverage from 2 mm (0.07 in.) up to 25 mm (1 in.), giving a higher detection probability.

Never miss an area

NDT PaintBrush is easy to use and requires minimum training while incorporating advanced high-performance technology. Don’t miss anything and rest assured that the inspection is properly performed.

Extensive statistical data

NDT PaintBrush solution provides valuable onboard statistics that are easy to understand and analyze.

3D Plotting

Corrosion is easily identifiable with UltraVision 3D—get 3D plotting for outstanding redenring of corrosion data on specimen parts. The tool can specify the depth of the corrosion. Therefore you know when action must be taken. Requires UltraVision 3D license on an external computer.
