ETS2-77 eddy current single-rail 8-channel flaw detector for track inspection

ETS2-77 purpose

The ETS2-77 is intended for the mechanized inspection of rails and switches as well as confirmation of the results of a grinding application. The device is capable of testing a wide range of rail profiles.

The eddy current technology enables localizing the following surface defects:

Eddy current single-rail 8-channel flaw detector ETS2-77
  • progressive transverse cracking (International Defect Code (UIC) 211);
  • fissuring /scaling at the gauge corner (International Defect Code (UIC) 2223);
  • shelling of the gauge corner (International Defect Code (UIC) 2222);
  • field flow or field cracking (International Defect Code (UIC) 225).

The eddy current rail inspection equipment ETS2-77 evaluates the vertical depth of the defect, thus allowing a more efficient management of rail defects. The inspector can easily decide on the appropriate defect removal method: grinding, milling or re-railing, which saves time and money.

 

APPLICATION

  • possibility to control the rail track and the track switch;
  • selective control of the separate rail track areas;
  • post grinding machines control;
  • all main rail profiles controlР50, Р60, 49E1, UIC 60 and others.

ETS2-77 flaw detector advantages

  • a light aluminium frame;
  • specialized abrasion-resistant ECPs, which allow evaluating oblique cracks of up to 3 mm deep in their vertical damage;
  • the use of 8 ECPs allows performing the inspection of the whole head rail surface in one run;
  • individual spring-mounted fitting of each ECP;

Eddy current single-rail 8-channel flaw detector ETS2-77 results

  • fast removal of the scanner during the transfer from one area to another;
  • individual adjustment of the ECP position;
  • operating time – no less than 8 hours;
  • specialized SW for setup, testing, and inspection result viewing.
