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:
- 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.
- 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;
- 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.
