The MODEL-4500 EMI Pipe Inspection System provides high speed detection for THREE (3) independent defect groups in NEW or USED Oil Field Drill Pipe, Tubing and Casing.

The MODEL-4500 system provides the most economical inspection solution with three (3) unique EMI inspection funcitons.

The MODEL-4500 systems include an Advanced system design.

FUNCTION  (defect types)

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

2.  LARGE Localized Wall Loss (larger ID and OD erosion/corrosion)

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


1.  Flux Leakage

2.  Flux Density

3. Flux Density

KEY Features:

  • 100% computerized system.  No knobs to turn – ever!
  • Superior defect repeatability.
  • Transverse Flaw Detection using Induction search coils.
  • Localized wall loss feature implements non-contact solid state Hall sensors. Non-contact design provides a Lower Total Cost of Ownership by eliminating wear and tear!
  • Fast inspection speed – up to 140 FPM.
  • Engineered to be rugged, extremely easy to use and maintain.
  • API tubular products up to 13-3/8″ O.D. can be inspected (model dependent). Specifiy size range when ordering.
  • More than 100% circumferential coverage for suspected Transverse Flaws.
  • 360 Degree coverage for localized Wall Loss (pitting, erosion and corrosion) and Thick-Thin Wall Monitoring feature, cross sectional area monitor.
  • Solid State Meter (S.S.M.) Technology derived from our ARTIS series of products. The digital meters never need calibration!
  • Computer Controlled Demagnetizing System.
  • Optional loading / unloading functions.
  • Optional defect paint marking system.
  • . . . and much more !
