AcousticEye's breakthrough, non-invasive solution for today's hard-to-inspect
tubes up to 4" inner diameter enables ultra-fast, accurate inspection of boilers,
Fin Fans and other heat exchangers regardless of tube shape or material.
Featuring patented Acoustic Pulse Reflectometry (APR) technology, Dolphin G3
is an advanced, yet easy-to-use tool that overcomes the limitations of many
conventional inspection techniques. With its simple operation, automated
analysis and report generation, there is far less dependency on operator
Providing reliable inspection of even the most challenging tube sizes and
configurations, AcousticEye increases inspection cycle efficiency and
operational cost savings.
Any tube size up to 4" diameter, regardless of shape, or material
Boilers, Fin Fans, other heat exchangers
U-bends, twisted, spiral wound and flexible tubes
Ferrous and non-ferrous metals, graphite and plastics
Ultra-fast, non-invasive inspection
Less than 10 seconds per tube
Fast enough for 100% inspection if/when needed
Ideal for emergency situations
No need for inventory of consumable probes
Less Expertise Required
Testing is easily performed by any operator with minimal training
Computer-based data interpretation and report generation
Acoustic Pulse Reflectometry
Probe injects an acoustic pulse down the tube
Returned echoes generated by defects are recorded and analyzed
A set of proprietary, patented algorithms identifies and reports exact location,
type and size of inner diameter defects
Convenient Handheld Device
The compact Dolphin G3™ handheld comprises the entire non-invasive probe
assembly. This includes customized adaptors to fit tubes of any internal
diameter up to 4”, a transducer, microphone, controls and LCD screen.
Inspection setup is performed via a connected external computer that also
records and analyzes test data using specialized AcousticEye software.
Dolphin G3™ guides the technician through all the steps necessary to carry out
a job - tube sheet mapping, parameter input, measurements, verification and
report generation. An intuitive graphic user interface, including helpful right-
click functions, makes scrolling, zooming and navigation easy every step of the
Mapping: The system creates a computerized model of the heat exchanger tube
sheet based on a photo, CAD file or scanned schematic diagram. Automatic
numbering and mapping is used to establish test plans and track inspection
Logging: All measurements are logged in their raw form. Different thresholds
and algorithms can be applied to regenerate reports with varying levels of
One-click calibration: The system utilizes only a single calibration tube
(supplied), eliminating inventory requirements and typical calibration
Visual aids for defect detection: Programmable thresholds for different flaw
types and sizes can be overlaid on the measured signals to assist in visual
evaluation of defects.
Computer-based interpretation: Delivering objective, consistent and actionable
results, the system automatically performs computer-based data interpretation,
reducing the reliance on experts.
Report generation: Dolphin G3™ presents an easy-to-read online report (with
drill down options) to the technician for verification, as well as a final summary
report including tabular reporting and screenshots of the detected flaws in PDF
or HTML format.
