Dolphin G3

Dolphin G3 Specifications

User-Friendly Operation

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 way.

- 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 progress.functions, makes scrolling, zooming and navigation easy every step of the way.

- 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.

- Logging

All measurements are logged in their raw form. Different thresholds and algorithms can be applied to regenerate reports with varying levels of sensitivity.

- One-click Collaboration

The system utilizes only a single calibration tube (supplied), eliminating inventory requirements and typical calibration challenges.

- Visual Aids For Detection

Programmable thresholds for different flaw types and sizes can be overlaid on the measured signals to assist in visual evaluation of defects.
