e2Sense – ElbowScan

The ES-­‐1020 ElbowScanTM allows encoded ultrasonic thickness measurements of carbon steel pipes with curved geometries. It is perfectly suited for scanning the extrados of a pipe elbow where thinning is accelerated.

Based on our unique UTFlexTM sensor technology, the ES-­‐1020 can adapt to NPS 0.75 to NPS 2 pipe diameters.


  • Adapts to pipes diameters from 1.050 to 2.375 inches (26.67 to 60.325 mm)
  • Various flexible delay line
  • 32 mm circumferential coverage
  • Spring loaded linear encoder
