One array for every inspection situation

Representing a breakthrough in ultrasonic inspection, the Kelpie’s unique flexibility and low-profile form (0.5mm) allows it to flex, twist and bend during scanning, conforming to difficult shapes and surfaces.

Designed for detecting flaws such as cracks and voids in metals and composites, the Kelpie can wrap around small-diameter piping, scan uneven surfaces and bend round elbow joints with unparalleled precision and accuracy. With enhanced surface conformance, the Kelpie is a market-leading tool for corrosion mapping of critical assets – achieving increased scan speed and enhanced imaging.
