10CR2S

JME 10:CR2:S Pipeline Crawlers are designed to produce high-quality panoramic radiographs of circumferential butt welds in new pipelines with an Internal Diameter (ID) between 12” to 48” (305mm to 1220mm).

These units have been developed and proven to work as a fully self-contained, self-powered exposure vehicle both onshore and offshore in the standard 10:CR2 configuration. With the 10:CR2:S providing all of the same components, features and functionality, in a lighter more compact package. Compatible with X-Ray generators of various manufacturers including Balteau, COMET/Yxlon and ICM. The JME Pipeline Crawler system utilises all current 10:CR2 stock, reducing the need for additional spare parts, enabling a crossover of spares while also solving additional pipeline and transport solutions.

  • 31KG LIGHTER THAN 10:CR2 SYSTEM
  • 333MM SHORTER THAN 10:CR2 SYSTEM
  • 25% INCREASE IN X-RAY ON TIME COMPARED TO 10:CR1

NEW FEATURES

REMOTE HANDSET: MULTI LANGUAGE TOUCH SCREEN

JME’s unique Handset allows external control and monitoring of the crawler whilst operating in the pipe, providing real time data on the crawler’s activity. It allows the operator to enable/disable all features of the Crawler and X-Ray generator prior to operation, avoiding a lengthy, complex analogue configuration.

CUSTOMISABLE ‘ANTI RUNAWAY’

‘Anti Runaway’ is a system which puts the crawler into reverse if it does not receive a signal from the Magnetope or Handset within a specified time period.

INTEGRATED RADIO RECOVERY

In the event of a malfunction within the pipe, the crawler’s internal logic can be overridden by the handset to reverse the crawler out of the pipe.

AMAX – AUTO MOVE AFTER X-RAY

When AMAX is enabled, the crawler will locate under the Magnetope and be signalled to start the X-Ray. Once the exposure is complete the crawler will automatically drive to the next weld, increasing site efficiency.

END OF PIPE SENSOR KIT / WATER DETECTION SENSOR KIT

End of pipe and water detection sensors are fitted to the front and rear of the crawler. End of pipe sensors detect the Crawler’s proximity to the pipe entrance and stop the system automatically, preventing accidental damage to the equipment. Water detection sensors stop the crawler if water is detected within the pipe. A handset message is displayed in both instances to alert the user.

SIMPLIFIED AND IMPROVED WHEEL/AXLE CHANGE

The revised axle change system allows for easier set-up in the field. A stationery center shaft combined with an axle extension provides the user with a swift set-up of the system for a variety of pipe sizes.

SINGLE MAGNETIC DETECTOR BOX

JME’s new crawler system incorporates a single Detector Box, covering the full spectrum of wall thicknesses up to 40mm. Removing the need to change the Detector Box as the wall thickness increases.

RANGE OF GAMMA PROJECTORS

Easy/simple crawler conversion from X-Ray generator to Gamma projector. Gamma actuators are compliant with all manufacturers safety mechanisms.

NON ISOTOPE CONTROL SYSTEM

  • Suitable for wall thickness up to 40mm
  • Rechargeable
  • +/- 5mm Accurate positioning and motion control

NON ISOTOPE TRACKING SYSTEM

  • Eliminates need for tracker isotope
  • Improved transportation safety
  • Improved crawler handling safety
