Accurately Inspect Material In Pipes

Pipe Inspection

The Best Solution for Inspecting Material in Pipes Up to 4” In Diameter

Inspect at Speeds up to 600 Feet Per Minute

The ScanTrac Fermata pipeline system is an excellent way to inspect bulk product flowing through a pipeline at speeds up to 600 feet or 300 gallons per minute. Typical pipeline applications include but are not limited to:

  1. Meat and Poultry
  2. Tomatoes
  3. Processed Fruits and Vegetables
  4. Conveyed Product

Finds A Wide Range of Contaminants

The Fermata features a two-way discharge valve assembly that minimizes the amount of discharged product containing a contaminant.

Note that the Fermata is designed to work with piston pump (as opposed to vacuum pump) systems. Also, material flow through the pipe must be continuous with no air pockets (this is generally not an issue for pressurized pipelines).

ScanTrac systems can find a wide range of contaminants in pipes, including but not limited to:

  • Metal
  • Glass
  • Stones
  • Bones
  • Rubber


ScanTrac Minimizes False Rejects

The best inspection systems need to both find defects when they occur and minimize false rejects. False rejects are expensive not just due to the loss of salable product but because of the labor allocated to addressing them.

ScanTrac minimizes rejects because it offers an exceptionally repeatable inspection process that is not sensitive to temperature, humidity, condition of product, etc.

In many applications the false reject rate on ScanTrac systems is on the order of 1:100,000!
