The ARTIS-3 Portable EMI Pipe Inspection System provides high speed state-of-the-art inspection for defects located in used Oil Field Drill Pipe, Tubing and Casing.

The ARTIS-3 is the most technologically advanced system available, designed to detect more defect types than any other EMI system in the marketplace.

The ARTIS-3 is the only portable transverse EMI inspection unit with four (4) unique detection functions !

FUNCTION  (defect types)

1.  Transverse Flaws (for holes, cracks, sharp pits)

2.  Localized Wall Loss (smaller, more abrupt OD erosion/corrosion)

3.  Localized Wall Loss (larger, more gradual ID erosion/corrosion)

4.  Full Length Wall Thickness Monitor (cross sectional area)


1.  Flux Leakage

2.  Flux Leakage

3.  Flux Density

4. Flux Density

The ONLY system in the industry which actually inspects 100% of the pipe wall using magentic wall loss methods.

All other systems inspect less than 20% !

KEY Features:

  • OEM’s PATENTED Methods & Technology.
  • Designed to operate from the <included> laptop computer system with a USB 2.0 interface.
  • 100% computerized system.  No knobs to turn – ever !
  • Automatically calibrates in seconds with our Exclusive AutoCAL function or the operator can manually calibrate the system.
  • 100% High Resolution Solid State HALL Sensor System… NO SEARCH COILS !
  • Unmatched defect detection with up to 25 independent channels of inspection.
  • Variable speed, ultra-fast inspection range approx. 90 – 140 FPM (27-43 MPM).
  • Engineered to be rugged, extremely easy to use and maintain.
  • MODEL 5400 – 2-3/8″ through 6-5/8″ O.D. API tubular products can be inspected.
  • MODEL 5500 – 2-3/8″ through 13-3/8″ O.D. API tubular products can be inspected.
  • Competitive spare parts / maintenance costs – The BEST inspection results for a comparable maintenance cost!
  • More than 100% circumferential coverage for suspected Transverse Flaws and Small Localized Wall Loss Defects (which are undetectable by induction search coil type systems).
  • 360 Degree coverage for suspected large area localized wall loss defects such as erosion and corrosion pitting (which is undetectable by induction search coil type systems).
  • Includes our “thick-thin” wall thickness monitoring function for defects such as OD wear, rod wear and gradual wear.
  • On Board Diagnostics (OBD – II) The Second Generation of our proprietary solid-state real time monitoring system for necessary system components.
  • For a stationary in-plant configuration, see our ARTIS-5 ST In-Plant System.
  • . . . and much more !
