OpenVision™ DX is an easy-to-use, digital x-ray system with live video output for real-time radiographic inspection and reporting. A patented combination of a c-arm mounted 70 kV x-ray source and a digital imager allows you to observe external defects as small as 0.010-inch (250 μm) on insulated piping.
OpenVision DX can be used on various insulation and cladding combinations, including mineral wool and calcium silicate with galvanized steel, stainless steel, and aluminum cladding up to 36 inches (91 cm) in total diameter.
OpenVision DX enables the inspection of hundreds of feet (many tens of meters) of insulated piping to quickly identify indications of corrosion or corrosion precursors such as scaling, external wall loss, and wet insulation. Pictures and real-time videos are recorded and downloaded with the touch of a button for rapid review and reporting.
OpenVision DX is IRR99/IRR17, ANSI 43.5, and CE compliant.
A rugged aluminum and carbon fiber c-arm house a robust metal ceramic x-ray source, integrated controller and battery, and a CMOS imager. Battery life is over three hours of operation. Data is securely stored on the internal hard drive or remote tablet.
High-resolution live digital video allows operators to minimize missed calls. Direct download of high-resolution images and videos provide quick transfer into reports for rapid reporting.
A 30% thinner imager increases access to tight spaces. Difficulty positioning the c-arm? Simply pivot the imager straight out, insert into a narrow space, then reposition at 90 degrees for scanning.
New ergonomic features support multiple configurations to facilitate both vertical and horizontal inspections at various heights, enable access to tighter spaces, and lessen operator fatigue.
OpenVision is a nondestructive testing (NDT) method using real-time radiography to quickly scan insulated piping systems for indications of corrosion or corrosion precursors, weld mapping, and heat trace location. Benefits include:
Record high-resolution still images directly onto OpenVision DX's internal storage or remotely from the wireless monitor. Review images and videos in real time or download for integration into client reports.
The benefit that the OpenVision system provides to the industry is the ease of operation and fast screening capability. It checks a lot of boxes as far as assessing that pipework for the presence of corrosion byproduct. It’s lightweight, it’s wireless, it’s fast-screening, and it’s real-time.
