ARTIS-3 Portable EMI Pipe Inspection System


The ARTIS-3 Portable 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 four function portable EMI inspection unit available !
    • TRANSVERSE FLAWS (for holes / cracks / sharp pits)
    • WALL LOSS TYPE-1 (for corrosion - OD)
    • WALL LOSS TYPE-2 (for erosion - ID)
    • FULL LENGTH WALL THICKNESS MONITORING (thick-thin display for large area gradual wear)

Three Models Available:  5300, 5400 and 5500.  See below for details!

The ONLY System in the industry which actually inspects 100% of the wall surface 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 5300/5400 - 2-3/8" through 6-5/8" O.D. API tubular products can be inspected.
  • MODEL-5300 base model for the best economics!  Fully software upgradeable to the top-of-the-line MODEL-5400 unit!
  • 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-3 ST In-Plant System.
  • . . . and much more !
