Pipeline X-Ray Crawler Units
Engineering & Inspections Hawaii recently purchased two (2) complete JME 10/60 X‑ray Pipeline Crawlers. JME pipeline crawlers are designed to produce high quality panoramic radiographs of circumferential butt welds in new pipelines from 10 inch to 60 inch pipe. These units are designed and proven, both onshore and offshore, to work as a fully self-contained, self‑powered exposure vehicles.
The Non-Isotope Control System is a unique magnetic control system designed to replace the conventional isotope control system. There are no trailing leads and all commands are executed from outside the pipeline via magnetic transmitter (Magnetope). The units can be commanded to travel, stop and radiograph as required by the user.
- Suitable for use up to 20mm of steel thickness
- Accurate positioning and motion control

6″ Pipeline Crawler
The JME 6″ Pipeline Crawler is specifically designed for (NDT) non-destructive examinations of circumferential butt welds in tubular installations such as oil and gas transmission pipelines, while in construction.
The JME 6″ Pipeline Crawler is extremely compact and lightweight, enabling internal panoramic single images (SWSI) radiology to be carried out in internal diameter down to 5.3 inches (135mm) and up to 16″.
18″ is achievable with optional 12AH battery tray
Constructed using high grade materials to provide a good finish, superior corrosion resistance, easy maintenance and extended service life. Electronic circuits utilize military specification components, thus ensuring reliability in harsh environments.
