RCA-10 & RCA-18

Magnetic Wheeled X-Y Cantilever Scanner

A choice between our RCA-10 or RCA-18 automated scanners is included with our portable Raptor Corrosion Inspection System (CIS). The only difference is the length of the scan arm. The powerful rare-earth magnetic wheels allow for 360-degree inspection of pipes and tank walls. Control bundle umbilicals are available in a variety of lengths for the most demanding applications while the standard 3-meter (~15’) umbilical covers most requirements.

Custom lengths are available upon request.
