Solutions for tube and pipe manufacturers


Technology Pioneers

Discover our solutions for tube and pipe inspection both welded and seamless, and whether the metal is ferromagnetic or not.

Tube and pipe inspection is crucial to avoid its service life reduction. Tube NDT inspection can prevent potential leaks before its service life is reached. The table below provides information about the different solutions ISEND® can offer to manufacturers of seamless tube, welded tube, pipe or other tube production processes.


Detection of long surface defects for cold inspection.

Maximum speed

Minimum diameter

With ROTOdiscover solution most of longitudinal defects can be detected. To its great strength and reliability must be added versatility, because there are different configurations for a wide range of needs. The ROTOdiscover solutions of ISEND® allow inspection from 2 mm diameters with high reliability, they can be configured properly for high and low frequency. Moreover, it enables:

– Several coil configurations (2+1, 4+1)
– Lift off control
– High precision guiding
– Reduced maintenance
– Advanced testing of cold formed long products. (Longitudinal defects)
– Longitudinal defects less than 50 microns deep


Detection of point surface defects for cold inspection

Quick-change of diameter system

Quick-change of diameter system

With or without magnetizing

ENdiscover® encircling solutions has been design to detect single, point and transversal defects with the highest sensibility both in magnetic and non-ferromagnetic materials. ENdiscover® solutions can also be used for material characterization using variations in its physics properties such as hardness or conductivity.

– Last generation fully digital electronics
– Robust and repetitive


Detection of surface defects in welding

High dimensions tubes

Quick-change of diameter system

With or without magnetizing

WELdiscover® is a solution for weld defect detection in tubes. ISEND® has developed this option for high dimensions tubes. Furthermore, it counts with:

– Segment, encircling, flat or adaptable coil shapes last generation fully digital electronic.
– Redesigned holder.
– Quick probe change in less than 1 minute.
– Detection of 1 mm defects in tubes at 120 m/min and probe at 1.5 mm distance.
